      Waipio Valley is a beautiful black sand beach which requires 4 wheel drive to get to. The valley is located in Honoka’a on the Hamakua coast of the Big Island. This beach is amazing with a 50 foot waterfall you can hike to in the back of the valley.

      The beach itself is fine black sand. There is a wide river that flows out to the ocean.

      Which also works as a perfect place


      for the kiddies to play. On the beach you can either sun bake, hike, but as many locals do, surfing is the thing to do.

      • locals are a bit rude if they suspect you are a tourist, but if you explain you come from another island they wont give you much trouble.

        Waipio was once a perfect place to camp, but now it is strictly prohibited. The view from the top of the valley is amazing and is perfect for a Kodak moment.

        Waipio is known for its taro plantation. Taro is the plant that makes poi.

        But if

        you can get down to the beach I suggest you bring the right kind of sunscreen. Waipio valley was featured in Waterworld.

        There are horse back riding tours, atv tours and wagon tours of the valley. So if you are going to go and see the island stop here and get great pictures.

        The valley also offers the “Z” trail which is a four day hike to Kohala. Only the most experienced hiker should temp it.
