Seven Sacred Pools
Hana Highway, Hana, Maui, Hawaii
The absolute epitome of tropical paradise, the Seven Sacred Pools in Oheo Gulch are the stuff daydreams are made of. Like pearls on a string, these world renowned pools (also known as the Pools of Oheo) are joined together by bubbling streams and small waterfalls—their natural beauty beckoning locals as well as weary city-dwellers from far and wide to take a dip in their tranquil waters. That said, the area draws large crowds (especially during the weekends) so arrive early. Fed by the Pipiwai streams a couple of miles inland, the pools may be closed off to swimmers depending on weather conditions, as flash flooding can occur.
