Attractions in the Waimea Valley
Oahu, Hawaii

Attractions in the Waimea Valley on the north shore of Oahu include a beautiful waterfall that spills into a swimming hole, botanical gardens with about 6000 species of plants, and several Hawaiian cultural and archeological sites.

Waimea Valley Park
The 1800 acre park inside the Waimea Valley is known as waimea Valley Park and it is a popular with for visitors and local familities for its gardens, waterfalls, peaceful environment, cultural activities, historic attractions, and natural beauty.

Waimea Falls
This waterfall and pool in a beautiful natural setting is easy to access via a short, paved nature trail. The pool at the bottom of Waimea Falls is a popular place to swim.

Puu O Mahuka Heiau
This sacred place of worship is located on the Pupukea Ridge overlooking the Waimea Valley. It was established in the 1100's and it is a Hawaii State Monument. More heiau were built in the Waimea valley during the 1700's.

What Happened to the Waimea Valley Adventure Park?
At one time, under one of the valley's former owners, there was also a privately owned park and activity center known as "Waimea Valley Adventure Park".offering ATV rides, paintball, mountain biking, cliff divers, horseback riding, and other adventure activities. That adventure park closed in about 2001. In 2003 park management was turned over the Audubon Society, and in 2007 the Hawaii State Office of Hawaiian Affairs took over managing the park. Since the adventure park closed, park management has focused more on the cultural, historic, and natural wonders of the Waimea Valley then on noisy, action-packed activities.
