The Ultimate Oahu Waterfalls Road Trip Is Right Here – And You’ll Definitely Want To Do It
Some of the country’s most impressive waterfalls can be found throughout the Hawaiian Islands – including just outside the bustling capital city of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. To celebrate Hawaii’s incredible waterfalls, we’ve come up with the ultimate Oahu waterfalls road trip, which combines two of our favorite things: waterfalls, and road trips.
At less than 70 miles and just under two hours, this road trip will take you to seven of Oahu’s best waterfalls. Unfortunately, there aren’t many waterfalls on Oahu easily visible from the road, which means that many of these waterfalls require a substantial hike. While the entire trip is possibly completed in one (very long) day, you will more than likely want to split up these adventures and tackle the “road trip” over the course of a long weekend.
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/
This list is by no means a comprehensive list of Oahu waterfalls – which others would you add to this list? When are you going to take the ultimate tour of Oahu waterfalls? Tag your road trip buddy in the comments on our Only In Hawaii Facebook page!
