Take a Tour Through Hawaii Falls State Parks

The diversity of natural beauties found in Hawaii is impressive since this land encompasses long sandy beaches, dense, lush tropical greenery, the risky landscape of volcanoes and astonishing beauty of several waterfalls. There are plenty of smaller waterfalls found here, but few bigger ones attract thousands of tourists annually down the thrilling touristic pathways.

North Hamakua Waterfalls

Hamakua Coast includes two most popular waterfalls: Akaka Falls State Park and Kahuna Falls. The second one is a slightly less attractive waterfall since it is usually covered and partially hidden by dense tropical forests. On the other hand, a tour through Akaka Falls State Park is a truly memorable experience.
