Maui’s Most Stunning Waterfalls

Beaches aren’t the only natural wonder on the island

No wonder Maui is one of the most beloved destinations in the world. The sun shines bright, and the climate is warm all year long. And the local culinary scene is absolutely delicious. But arguably, visitors flock here for the island’s unparalleled natural beauty. While the beaches and ocean might be the most obvious attractions, don’t pass up Maui’s waterfalls.

Waimoku Falls

If you’re all about jaw-dropping views, then check out this 400-foot-high waterfall perched on on the Pipiwai trail. While the hike isn’t easy, you’ll get to see tropical trees, bamboo forests, and crystalline pools along the way. And the cliff, once you reach the end, is nothing short of impressive.

Twin Falls

True: these falls on the Road to Hana are wildly popular and get packed with crowds, but the accessibly and lush jungle setting makes it worth a visit. Given its postcard-perfect setting – imagine overhanging plants and a cave tucked behind the falls – photos are an absolute must.

Wailua Falls

Don’t miss these falls situated at mile marker 45 on the Road to Hana. It’s the most photographed waterfall in Maui, and once you visit: you’ll know why. The water dramatically cascades over a jungle wall. Even better? You won’t need to step out of your car the photo opp. Be sure to bring your bathing suit, and take a dip!
