  • If you have time and are relatively fit to make the trek to the black sand beach you see from the Lookout. You can only go there in a 4x4 because the road is very very steep. The hard part of the walk is the return ... all steep climb ... but it only takes about 25 to 30 minutes. it's not that long. Below the view of the Valley and the river that flows into the beach are very nice!!!

  • Waipio valley was great. The scenery and the pristine valley was beautiful. The guide was informative. It was hard to hear in the back of the van so I missed some of what the guide said in the beginning. I think this is a must do in Hawaii
