Locals Will Always Remember The Fatal Rockfall That Shuttered One Of Hawaii’s Most Beloved Waterfalls

From towering cascades you can only witness via helicopter tour to short waterfalls that cascade into small pools where you can make a splash, the waterfalls you’ll find across the Hawaiian Islands are truly remarkable. And while there are many waterfalls you can experience in person — and even swim in — there is one waterfall that is strictly off-limits for a mighty good reason: Sacred Falls.
