The Hamakua Coast is saturated in pure lushness. It is not uncommon to pass through this district and experience a cool breeze, light rain or a combination of both, resulting in an eerie but heavenly mist. Head on over to Waipio Valley Lookout and see 2000ft face cliffs covered in tropical fauna. In the distance, one or more waterfalls can be seen gracefully descending into the Pacific Ocean.
On the northeastern part of the Hamakua district, explore inland for an opportunity to experience Akaka Falls at 442ft.
