Waimea Valley Nature Walk & Waterfall – this gorgeous botanical garden/sanctuary is tucked away on Oahu’s North Shore, right across the road from Waimea Bay beach park. It has a great restaurant, coffee shop, bar and gift shop that preface its beautiful botanical garden. The garden walk is a paved, affordable, and extremely accessible journey through the garden that ends at a waterfall/swimming area with lifejackets and lifeguards. In our opinion, a GREAT option for families of all ages and sizes.
