Be prepared for the hike, a swim, and an amazing campsite

You have to hike down a hill to get there, but it is super pretty. It’s in a valley, so it will get cool at night and is warm during the day, but it’s super quiet, and an amazing spot.

The hike down can be a bit steep and if it is raining it gets SUPER wet and slick. It is worth it! A beautiful pristine beach, waterfalls all around, and towering green mountains covered in dense jungle. Absolutely amazing! Be sure to pack in enough water and food! hike back to cars isnt too bad…

Phenomenal!!!

Waimanu Valley is a state campground for backpacking. It starts out at Waipio Valley lookout and continues 9 miles up to the next valley over. It's a moderately strenuous hike with a pack on your back! Be prepared with water filter, rain gear, mosquito repellant and everything else you need for…
