The Hamakua Coast includes two of the island’s most famous waterfalls—the 442-foot-high Akaka Falls and the 100-foot-tall Kahuna Falls. You’ll fly over triple-tiered Umauma Falls too! The three levels which Umauma Falls flows down resemble great lava stone steps with recesses that create tranquil little pools surrounded by tropical plants and trees.
