Umauma Falls Viewing

Umauma Falls are open to visitors from 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day. At this time you can drive on a concrete road right to the falls and tropical garden after stopping at the visitor center.  Take as little or as much time as you like. Stop by our Visitor’s Center to pick up a map of the Garden or get a snack.

Umauma Tropical Garden Walk

Walk along Hawaii’s Umauma River and enjoy the natural palm forest and river views.  See a very large Hawaiian native ‘Ohi’a Lehua tree in its natural Big Island river setting – look for its distinctive feathery red blooms.

Enjoy a leisurely walk back to your car over two bridges and a mac nut path.  Smell and enjoy the Big Island plants along the walk. As you walk under one of the archways look for some orange blooms on the vine.  It is usually blooming. Look under the very large tree toward the end of the garden and notice the beginning of an Anthurium garden.

Do not miss this experience.  Take your time.  This place is special and is partly why you came to Hawaii. Both features can be visited even by people with limited mobility.

If you miss this, you probably didn’t see the Big Island, Hawaii that was in your dreams before you came. Zipline tour customers get several private special views of this spectacular wonder of nature.
