The Natural Swimming Hole In Hawaii That Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days

While the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible beaches perfect for swimming, sometimes you prefer something a little more adventurous. Perhaps a waterfall swimming hole? But with so many amazing swimming spots to choose from, how are we ever supposed to pick a favorite? Well, this spot might not be No. 1, but Maunawili Falls is pretty high on our list — for its incredible crystalline pool, gorgeous waterfall cascade, opportunities for cliff jumping, and the incredible hike it takes to get there.

Because this destination is fed by a waterfall, it is important for us to issue a friendly warning about the risks associated with flash flooding and leptospirosis bacteria found in many of Hawaii’s natural swimming holes. It is advised that you check weather reports before heading out for the day, and to always watch your step. With that warning out of the way, let’s talk about this dreamy Hawaiian destination.
