  • Quick hike down to the bay from the street. Little tricky to follow at times and can be slippery/muddy if it has been raining. Boots recommended. No services at trailhead.  more »
  • A most beautiful lush walk down to a remote beach. Do not miss it!!! The drive on the road to get there is also like a Hawaiian wonderland.  more »
  • We found a little trailhead just off the road that allowed us to get right down to the shoreline. It was a fun scramble down and the view was fantastic! #hike #letsguide
  • Access to Onomea bay and falls are from the Old Mamalahoa Highway. There is limited parking on road. From trail head marker, it is step and wet to first cove. Here the palm trees grow out horizontal from rocky shore. Go over headland of Botanical garden to Onomea falls. From here you can cross stream to narrow headland to view the bay itself. No swimming here. Trail is wet and continues back up to road. Good ½ hour walk.
