Apart from swaying palms on white sand beaches, nothing says 'tropical paradise' like a crystal-clear cascade falling into a serene pool, surrounded by lush vegetation. Hawaii is renowned for its beautiful falls, and each of its four biggest islands offers something different.
Even if you're staying on Oahu and sunning yourself in Waikiki or elsewhere in the Honolulu area, you don’t have to miss out on seeing the state's famous falls. Spend the morning beachside then go hiking in the afternoon (or vice versa of course), joining a select group on the trail to Manoa Waterfall, through the teeming jungle of the Koolau mountains. You'll go off the beaten track but the pace is gentle, and on the way you'll learn about the tropical plants and birdlife that you come across. It's an all-round workout for the legs, the mind and the camera.
