Waipio Valley

Waipio Valley
The Waipio Valley is a very beautiful and peaceful part of Hawaii and filled with interest. Known for its wealth of tropical flora and fauna, the lush Waipio Valley is situated within the Big Island's Hamakua region and on the northern coast. Interesting, the valley was once inhabited for many years, until a giant tsunami wave washed away all of the settlements.
Numerous waterfalls flank the rock faces, with the giant Hiilawe Falls being an especially notable landmark, since it is the tallest in the whole of Hawaii, measuring just under 400 metres / 1,310 feet. When you first set eyes on the Hiilawe Falls, it really is very likely to make you gasp a little, at the very least. You can very easily spend an entire day exploring the Waipio Valley, so do bring you camera to record the scenery, particularly the views from the lookout area.
