Waioka Pond, Kaanapali Reviews
A spectacular place! Parking can be challenging on the side of the highway. Once you find the pull off and park your car, follow the path across the field that leads you to the pool. The pool is so gorgeous and has several great spots to jump off the surrounding rocks. There is also a rocky beach on the far side that you can swim to after you jump in. This was my favorite location on the road to hana by far. Very picturesque, and you don't have the ridiculous national park crowds here at the Venus Pool because it's hard to find and has very limited parking.
If the Road to Hana is about the journey, well this is what makes the journey totally worth it! When the wife and I finished our trip down the winding, narrow road and reached the sacred pools, they unfortunately were closed due to heavy rainfall...oddly enough they've apparently been closed for that same reason for the past 2 weeks according to a local. However, when all hope seemed lost for bathing in a sacred or even a semi-sacred pool (honestly, a large puddle would've sufficed at that point), the extremely informative app we were using told us about a "secret" local spot (ain't so secret anymore I guess) called the Venus Pool (hop over/behind the little bridge, pass through the gate, and turn at the old oven...just follow the path). Not only is it great for swimming (water is saltwater though since it's coming in from the ocean), it also had a really nice 30 ft jump into the water from some of the surrounding rocks. This single spot literally made the Road to Hana challenge worth every white-knuckled second! Can't wait to go back!
No water when we visited - just rotten berries from the trees. Had to cross under barbed wire fence.
Great place very beautiful at all times, remember respect the locals, if they're behind you pull over and let them pass with a friendly shaka! The owners let's us have access so pack it in pack it out. Stay Pono and Aloha!
Beautiful spot, good jumping rocks, mostly salt water, exit not so easy, bit steep and slippery.
