The 700-foot Waipoo Falls is among the best ones to see in the island due to the scenic Waimea Canyon as the backdrop. The 80-foot Rainbow Falls is also postcard perfect and is best viewed in the morning when the mists create a rainbow around. Other must-visit waterfall in the area includes the Wailua Falls, Manawaiopuna Falls, Hanakapiai Falls, Moaula Falls, Papalaua Falls and Sacred Falls. The 420-foot Akaka Falls also makes it to the list of the best waterfall in the state because of its accessibility. The 400-foot Waimoku Falls inside the Haleakala National Park in Maui is also preferred because of its great hiking trail.
