Waimea Valley

A $15.00 value - Included with your Go Oahu Card!

The 1,875-acre Waimea Valley is filled with natural wonders: 35 botanical gardens with 5,000 varieties of plants, dozens of archeological sites, and a spectacular 45-foot waterfall. You can even take hula lesson or make a lei!

At Waimea Valley, on Oahu’s rural North Shore, visitors can experience Hawaiian culture in a spectacular natural environment. Waimea Valley is a living puuhonua, or a place of peace and safety. It’s also one of Oahu’s last partially intact ahupuaa, or land divisions, that extend from the mountains to the sea.

A paved path winds through 35 themed botanical gardens, featuring more than 200 plant families, including rare plants found only on the Hawaiian Islands. Some flowers are as big as a basketball! The 45-tall Waimea Falls are the focal point of Waimea Valley, and visitors are invited to swim in the pool below—so bring a swimsuit and towel!

Comments about Smart Destinations Waimea Valley General admission:

This is so worth the time to go up and see on the North Shore. It's leisurely, but can be super fun with swimming in the pool around the falls. There are beautiful flora and fauna and gorgeous spots for pictures...it's an easy walk. Really good for kids.

Comments about Smart Destinations Waimea Valley General admission:

This was beautiful, its only about a mile and a half round trip but if you go on all the little turn offs it becomes much more. Well worth it though the waterfall is beautiful and you can swim and we were there at a time where they were offering free hula lessons.
