Swim beneath the falls in Waimea Valley
What could be more romantic than swimming beneath a waterfall in lush surroundings once inhabited by ancient Hawaiians? In addition to being a spectacular place to enjoy a dip on a hot day, the Waimea Valley on O’ahu’s North Shore is home to a world class botanical garden with 5,000 documented kinds of tropical and subtropical plants as well as several significant historical sites. One of the best ways to explore the area is to take part in a half-day guided hike.
Admission is $15 (add an extra $10 to $15 to participate in a hike).
