Waimea Falls Park, Haleiwa

3.9
#5 of 8 in Parks in Haleiwa
See endangered bird species flying among large banyan trees as you walk down to the waterfall and swimming hole at Waimea Falls Park. To swim in the waters surrounding the waterfalls, you must wear a life jacket provided by one of the attendants. The park provides transportation to the waterfall for visitors with mobility issues. Purchase the audio tour if you want to learn more about the park on your walk. Take one of the shorter nature walks that run alongside the main path, and be sure to visit the peacocks in the flower garden. The park does not permit pets other than service dogs. Waimea Falls Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Haleiwa Edition.

  • Hired a car for the day and stopped in here on our day tour. Nice spot to see a bit touristy but nice easy walk to falls takes about 20 mins to walk to there. Had a swim but have to wear life jackets.  more »
  • Spent a couple of hours walking around and taking in the displays and the gardens, relaxed and fairly quiet. Didn't actually go for swim in the falls, but it was fairly popular with most people. You d...  more »

  • One of my favourite waterfall in north-shore. To get tot eh waterfall, there's a large lush tropical botanical garden you will have to walk through, which is very nice. One of the scene from the famous TV show lost was also film here. The entrance fee is $16 per adult, you can swim in the waterfall but you have to wear life jacket
  • The Waimea Nature Park is a must visit if you're on the north shore of Oahu. Beautiful floral canopies cover trails, lined with gorgeous native Hawaiian plant life. The falls at the end of the trail, with pools you can swim in, cap off a fantastic hike.
  • BE AWARE....this is NOT Waimea falls!! it's an obvious google error... the real park is 3-4 miles further on 83... very clearly marked... and is a GREAT PLACE...it's just not at this spot
  • We visited here for 30minutes - waste of time.
  • This is NOT the location of Waimea Falls. The real location is at the end of the Waimea Valley Trail, which is accessed in the Waimea Valley Botanical Gardens. You should navigate to that point, DON'T navigate here -- it leads to a dead end in a neighborhood. There is an admission fee for the gardens and the trail is completely paved. Swimming is allowed in the pool beneath the falls, but you are required to wear a provided life vest. The falls and the gardens are really nice (several films/TV shows were shot here), but I prefer a more rugged/natural experience.
