Manoa Falls - Review

Manoa Falls are a beautiful attraction in the midst of nature and are a very popular tourist attraction in Honolulu. You need to take a short hike to see them but they are every bit worth the effort. The lush green area amidst which you will find the cascading white water is simply spectacular.

Interestingly it is the place where the movie Jurassic Park and the TV Series Lost were filmed. The pretty waterfall and the moderate trek up the hill are the perfect day-trip while in Honolulu. Located close to Paradise Park, this place is a certain must-visit.

Hawaii has tremendous natural wealth and it only makes sense to explore it while you are in Honolulu. This idyllic spot near the city makes for the perfect occasion to do so. In the lap of nature, you will be able to appreciate the wild beauty of these islands. Manoa Falls is one of the attractions in 5 Days Itinerary Honolulu. Must visit this awesome attraction.

Manoa Falls, Honolulu Reviews

  • This is a beautiful hike to Manoa Falls, when you picture hiking on Hawaii, this will meet and exceed your expectations! Parking is $5, so be sure to have some cash to pay attendant. The hike is not difficult for most, but you will get muddy, so be sure to wear shoes to navigate slippery and muddy trails at times. Be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks, so you can enjoy the trail and relax at the Manoa Falls before heading back down. Be advised it is recommended not to swim in the water at the base of the waterfall due to bacteria that is in the water. I highly recommend to bring a change of clothes, towels, and an extra pair of shoes or flip flops for the ride home! The trail is pet friendly, but they will be muddy at the end, so bring towels and blankets for their ride home as well!

  • This place was so cool! The hike felt like a Jurassic Park-ish Safari. The terrain was a bit slippery so footing was a tough situation. But after making that hike, being able to climb in the pool at the base of the waterfall was refreshing. There's a bit of historical structures in the park surrounding the waterfall path entrance as well

  • Very nice short hike! Took about 2hrs, start to finish. Tennis shoes a must though we seen alot of flip flops (not suggested, very slippery). Great for kids and beautiful streams and of course the waterfall!

  • Quite a climb but Oh, SO WORTH IT!!! Ranks up there with one of the most beautiful places in the world! And the sound of that waterfall!! Ahhh! A sound I'll never forget!... Wear comfy tennis shoes, and they will probably get muddy...

  • A nice hike. The forest is quite humid. Some parts of the trail are quite slippery. When you get there it's all worth it. Beautiful.
