Waimea Valley

A $16.00 value, FREE 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!
