Falling more than 46 m (150 ft), Manoa Falls sparkles against a sheer rock face. Take a 2.4 km (1.5 mi) hike through tall trees with twisted trunks and thick greenery to reach the falls.

Our Honolulu trip planning site makes visiting Manoa Falls and other Honolulu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
