Akaka Falls

Akaka Falls
Anyone holidaying on the Big Island really should to try and drag themselves away from the glorious sandy beaches and explore just some of the many spectacular natural landmarks which are scattered all around Hawaii.
The Akaka Falls is one such site and this enormous cascade of water is more than 134 metres / 440 feet in height, making it the second-highest waterfall on the island, and importantly, the most accessible. Located just 18 km / 11 miles north of Hilo and on the north-eastern side of the island, the Akaka Falls is one waterfall that you will be glad you found. Close by, if you have time, do also check out some of the other neighboring waterfalls, such as the Kahuna Falls, which although smaller, is still very quite special.

The 6-km / 4-mile Pepeekeo Scenic Drive between Honomu and Hilo is also worth considering.
