Manoa Falls, Honolulu

4.5
#2 of 13 in Nature in Honolulu
Falling more than 46 m (150 ft), Manoa Falls sparkles against a sheer rock face. Take a 2.4 km (1.5 mi) hike through tall trees with twisted trunks and thick greenery to reach the falls. The pathway is often slippery, so wear shoes with a good grip. Then be prepared to take these shoes off to wade in the shallow pool at the base of the waterfall. Our Honolulu trip planning site makes visiting Manoa Falls and other Honolulu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Was a great morning hike. It was raining, not down poring but still soaked from head to toe by the end. It was worth it. The fall was bigger and made it an amazing experience
  • This place a like a dream. It’s heaven but on earth. Truly breath taking ! Enjoy the hike :)
  • tough trail if your old and fat but very beautiful !
  • Way too crowded of a hike to make it enjoyable. There is a long line the whole way up to the waterfall that ruins any enjoyment of it. It is definitely not worth doing
  • Love this easy hike! It’s extremely beautiful and fun for the whole family. It can definitely be a challenge if it’s muddy though! Parking is $5.
