Step Into The World Of Narnia On This Forbidden Waterfall Hike In Hawaiʻi

The Hilo coast has some amazing waterfalls and our tours offer the most luxurious way to explore their beauty. Megan Shute offers the magic of a waterfall for Only In Your State.

Found along every mile of coastline and in the heart of the islands’ interior, the Hawaiʻian Islands are known for their infinite number of natural wonders. Perhaps there is no greater wonder than the countless waterfalls found across the beautiful Aloha State – from Hawaiʻi Island’s 442-foot Akaka Falls to Kauai’s Hanakapiai Falls and everywhere in between. And while all of Hawaiʻi’s waterfalls are magical, there is one hidden spot sure to make your jaw drop to the floor and mutter in disbelief about how such a magical landscape even exists. This is what is commonly referred to as Narnia Falls, and trust me, it is absolutely as amazing as it sounds.

On the lush, verdant Hilo coast, you will find countless incredible waterfalls. Some, like Rainbow Falls, are wildly popular, and others, like the nearby Pe’epe’e Falls are lesser-known. And then there are waterfalls like the ones we will be discussing today: hidden, ethereal, and completely not of this world.

Follow a secret path near Hilo past “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe” to find Narnia. Or at least what we imagine Narnia would look like if it were a real place.

Here you will find at least four stunning waterfalls cascading down lush, emerald green cliff faces into one striking pool.

Once you reach the waterfalls, you can splash, swim, and even walk behind a few of these stunning waterfalls. Don’t forget your GoPro or other waterproof camera!

It doesn’t get much more magical than this, wouldn’t you agree?

While we can’t tell you exactly where to find this lush oasis, it is located upstream of the popular Rainbow Falls on the Wailuku River.
