Waipio Valley
Honokaa-Waipio Road, Honoka'a, HI 96727Map

Located at the very end of the Honokaa-Waipio Road, this valley is perhaps one of the most sacred in the islands. Burial caves and other relics of ancient Hawaiians still exist in the valley. The endangered Hawaiian hawk are also spotted here. They gather in the late afternoons to search for prey. Today, the valley is home to taro farmers, who take their crop up the narrow road to poi factories in Hilo. The valley is on private property and access by rental cars is prohibited by car rental agencies. Please respect the area when visiting.
