You’ll Want To Spend All Day At This Waterfall-Fed Pool In Hawaii
From Kauai to Hawaii Island and everywhere in between, the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible waterfall-fed swimming holes perfect for relaxing. Nowhere will you find more incredible cascades than along Maui’s famous Hana Highway, and today, we’re featuring one of the best: the roadside Hanawi Falls.
Before we dive into this waterfall-fed pool, I’d like to issue a friendly reminder about safety. Because this incredible waterfall is stream-fed, it is important to issue a friendly warning about the risks associated with flash flooding, and leptospirosis bacteria found in many of Hawaii’s natural pools. It is advised that you check weather reports and ocean conditions before heading out for the day, never swim here if you have open wounds, and to always watch your step.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Hanawi Falls is located along Maui’s Hana Highway near Mile Marker 24 and you can find exact directions here. To discover more incredible waterfall swimming holes in the Aloha State, check out our previous article.
