This picturesque waterfall park is worth the small fee they have recently (since we last visited) begun collecting. The views include Akaka Falls (442 feet) and Kahuna Falls (100 feet), hundreds of striking plants (that have been cultivated to resemble a tropical rain forest) with bamboo, banyan, and albesia trees. (Surprisingly few birds seem to inhabit the park.)
Akaka falls itself resembles a tie on a dark business suit, and the gorge below is hard to see for the abundant mist created by the booming water.
A beautiful stroll, the circle is a good place to stretch your legs and see one (Akaka) of the island’s mighty falls and the lush colors of the flora and fauna.
