The Big Island of Hawaii has some fabulous waterfalls. Here are some of the best shots we’ve been able to find that show off this beauty. The tour goes from A-Z (actually, W, since there’s no Z in the Hawaiian language). Some of these waterfalls can be viewed at no cost, while others may charge for parking—or for a guide to get you there. Of course, they’re all free to view here.
Whether you’re planning a trip to the Big Island or just want to learn more about any of these waterfalls, try going over to hawaii-guide.com, where you can get more info about most of these and much more. Information on Nanue Falls, which is on the Hamakua Coast, can be found on world-of-waterfalls.com.
Most of the waterfalls shown here are well known, but one in particular, Kahuna Falls, is a bit lesser known. Kahuna Falls is not as famous as its nearby neighbor Akaka Falls, but it does have a B&B named after it. While Akaka Falls doesn’t have a B&B, it does have a cool legend. It seems that Akaka Falls was named after King Akaka, whose wife returned home one day to find the king with his mistress. The wife began chasing her husband, who fell to his death at the falls.
