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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
