Beautiful Maui Waterfalls
A Rainy Day Is The Best Day On Maui!
The waterfalls are mainly found on the north and northeast slopes of the mountains that make up Maui. Hana is situated on the northeast corner of Maui, just below Haleakala Volcano. Since Haleakala is so much larger and taller than the West Maui Mountains, you’ll find most of the waterfalls in Maui are on it’s slopes. Starting in Haʻiku, you will see creeks flowing under the Hana highway every mile or so. Traveling up the coast towards Hana, the land becomes very steep and the road follows a rugged coastline of cliffs and gulches. These steep gulches cut into the forest all the way up Haleakala Volcano and cradle streams which pour water down over hundreds of waterfalls on their way to the ocean. The road to Hana passes over many of these streams during the water’s journey to the ocean and usually as the water flows down over rock outcroppings, there are wonderful jungle settings, accentuated by picturesque waterfalls. The best Maui waterfalls are found around Hana. The biggest waterfall that can be seen from the Hana Highway is located past Hana, just a few miles before The Pools at Oheo.
