Which Waterfalls to See in Maui and Why a Maui Air Tour is the Best Way to View Them

Also referred to as "Valley Isle," Maui is home to a very diverse landscape. Located within the island's valleys are some of the best waterfalls you can find anywhere. No trip to Maui would be complete without a visit to these spectacular sights of nature.

Upper Waikani Falls has affectionately earned the nickname "Three Bears Falls." The name refers to three cascades that fall beside one another, each one progressively shorter than the last, like the three bears in the classic story of Goldilocks. This picturesque, 70 foot triple waterfall even has a plunge pool with clear water deep enough for swimming, but shallow enough for standing under the falls for one spectacular picture.

Don’t let the name fool you. Lower Puohokamoa Falls are actually some of the tallest waterfalls on the island. The 200-foot cascade is named for its proximity to Hana Highway. This hidden treasure is often overlooked by tourists because the falls cannot be spotted from the road. The base of the falls is accessible via a trail, but the path is steep and best suited for experienced hikers.

Waimoku Falls is the tallest waterfall located on the island of Maui and one of the most remote. In order to see it, you’ll either need to take a Maui air tour or hike 4 miles on the Pipiwai Trail. Along the way, you will see other impressive sights, such as the Makahiku Falls, the Seven Sacred Pools and a large bamboo forest. This breathtaking waterfall flows down a sheer lava rock into a pool filled with boulders. Once you catch a glimpse of the enormous, 400 foot waterfall, you will know it was well worth the journey.
