These 13 Waterfall Swimming Holes In Hawaii Are Perfect For A Summer Day
Here at Only In Hawaii, we’ve talked about waterfalls, and we’ve talked about swimming holes, but now we’re combining the two and giving you our exclusive list of 13 of the greatest waterfall swimming holes across the islands – from spots found only from hiking through the deep jungle of Oahu’s windward coast, to various scenic spots visible from Maui’s breathtaking Hana Highway.
Because these incredible destinations are fed waterfalls, 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 in these pools when you have open wounds and to always watch your step.
Are you as obsessed with Hawaiian waterfalls as we are? Why not go on one of our perfectly planned waterfall road trips – with itineraries for both Oahu and Maui.
