Rainbow Falls on the Big Island

This is one of the most accessible waterfalls in the entire state of Hawaii.  It’s  short drive outside of Hilo town and is practically next to a local highway.  It’s a major tourist attraction with ample parking and wheelchair accessibility.  That side of the island is very wet and lush so it’s nearly a guarantee that there will be water flowing.  You like?

In Hilo, Hawai’i (USA) the Wailuku River tumble 80 feet to form Rainbow Falls. The lava cave behind the falls was said to be the home of Hina, an ancient Hawaiian goddess associated with the moon.
