Your Hilo waterfall tour starts with a nice drive along the Hamakua coastline. As you cruise down the coastline, you'll take in amazing sights like waterfalls, valleys and old plantation villages. Your first destination is Liliuokalani Gardens; there's just something so attractive about this 30-acre garden with rock gardens, pagodas and fishponds.
From the gardens, you'll continue toward Rainbow Falls. This natural wonder features an 80-foot drop that must be seen up close. Speaking of natural wonders, you'll also be taking another scenic drive to Onomea Bay; where you will find remnants of an old sea arch and a river flowing through a lava tube.
A casual hike through the tropical landscape is another part of this tour, and you'll be doing some of it at Akaka Falls State Park. The trek is worth it: a 422-foot waterfall awaits you at the end of your hiking trail. Travel along through country lands to Waipio Valley lookout to take in breathtaking views of "The Valley of Kings," home to a black sand beach, local agriculture, and rich with culture and history. Reserve your spot on this small group experience and see Hilo in all its glory.
