The Only Navigable River In Hawaii, Wailua River Is A Thing Of Natural Beauty

The Hawaiian Islands are well-known for their countless pristine beaches, majestic mountains, awe-inspiring jungles, and cascading waterfalls. And though Hawaii may not be recognized for its rivers and lakes, there are some stunning bodies of water throughout the Aloha State just begging to be explored – including Hawaii’s only truly navigable river.
