Old Mamalahoa Highway, Hakalau, Big Island, Hawaii
Not one, not two, but three waterfalls await you at Umauma Falls where the river plummets off multiple lava stone steps into calm pools below. An overlook provides a perfect view of the falls framed by a dense cluster of wild guava trees and sugarcane—certainly a lovely sight to behold. However, if you’d prefer a less tranquil experience, a third party company operates a zip-line that follows the river’s path, running directly over the majestic falls. After all, why just see when you can soar?
