    A short walk and stunning

    This is a bit of a walk. I only warn that for those with mobility issues. But the vegetation and falls are incredible. I’ve never seen ferns so large. Give me a helpful vote if this helped make yo...

    Rainbows at the fall

    No rains in our stay on this island. Only rainbow we saw was at this waterfall. No hike, there is a parking lot right at the falls.

    Beautiful

    It had rained all week before we visited so the water was quite murky. But what a beautiful waterfall right in the middle of town, and so accessible The trail to the top was closed. Bummer.

    Nice quick waterfalls

Additional Information

Introduction

Rainbow Falls is located in the western part of Hilo City on the Big Island. It is famous for its waterfalls that reflect the sun's rays and form a beautiful rainbow. The rainbow waterfall is very different from the green plants surrounded by layers of greenery. Rainbow Falls is one of the few waterfalls in the Hawaiian Islands that have no dry seasons.
