An incredibly enriching experience in every way. Your guide will take you on an enthralling journey of history and adventure, beauty and meaning. This is a profoundly moving and soul-filling place.

The pre trip talk before hiking to the falls was a great way to get immersed to the local lore and history. First time eating a Hawaiian banana from the tree and starfruit. Great hike and swim at the falls. Guide was excellent and very helpful.

Halawa Valley Cultural Tour

This is my favorite thing that I have done across three trips to the Big Island, Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Molokai.

Our tour was led by Greg, whose family has a long history in the valley. The hike is beautiful, but the real meat is all of Greg's knowledge about the history and traditional lifeways in the valley and how and why they have changed over time. He comes at things with a frankness, humility and grace that made the whole experience very impactful. This tour will provide you with an opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of Hawaiian culture and probably correct some of your misconceptions about it. I cannot recommend the cultural tour highly enough and I would absolutely schedule my visit to the island around its availability.

The actual hike to the waterfall goes through a forest full of wild fruit and other tropical trees that have grown up on the remains of ancient terraces that were built when the valley was completely open. There is a pool at the base of the waterfall that you can swim in if you choose to, but it is totally worth the walk even if you don't get in. The hike itself is a little bit hard to categorize in terms of difficulty. The total distance is about 3.5 miles with about 600-700 feet of elevation gain, which would make it moderate by the formula the National Park Service uses. However, there are two stream crossings, several logs to climb over and under, and a good amount of uneven footing throughout. So, if you are unaccustomed to hiking or have any balance issues I would classify it as difficult and encourage you to make an honest self-assessment of your ability level. Hiking sandals are the ideal footwear for this hike -- something that can get wet but has a tough sole with some traction.

If you aren't taking a tour -- even though you absolutely should -- you can still drive down to Halawa Park at the bottom of the Valley (more on the drive below), but you won't be able to go any further as the entire valley is privately owned. I've seen write-ups online of people continuing on without a guide, but just...don't. The cultural tour was the highlight of my visit and trespassing to avoid it would be both disrespectful and pretty crappy.

The drive down into the valley is also quite beautiful. As mentioned in several other reviews, the last ten miles are narrow and winding. If you are accustomed only to city driving, it can seem daunting but it is also very doable if you give yourself adequate time, go slowly and use common sense. The entire road is paved and for much of it there is adequate room for two vehicles to pass if you are cautious. Plus, most of the (very few) other drivers you are likely to encounter are locals used to negotiating the road, so if you defer to their experience (or better yet, are able to get behind and follow one of them) you shouldn't have any serious issues. Put another way, I would take this drive 100 times out of 100 over the road to Hana. Just go slow, pay attention, and defer to the locals.

Overall, this was an amazing experience and not to be missed if you are visiting Molokai.

Une balade incroyable entre paysage & culture. Des échanges passionnants. Nous avons passé 1 mois à Hawaii et c'est la meilleure visite que nous ayons faites. La route est fabuleuse pour arriver à l'est de l'ile. Et la rencontre avec Greg et sa famille nous a permis de vraiment comprendre Hawaii. Nous avons appris sur la culture, l'histoire, les plantes, nous avons même goûté des fruits inconnus très bons. La balade est facile et se fait en tout petit groupe. S'il y a une chose à faire à Molokai, c'est Halawa Valley avec Greg :-) Merci !

The drive is beautiful but dangerous as the last 10 miles or so is single lane with many turns. The park had very little parking. Also we could not see the falls as the guides were not working that day.

My niece decided to sign us up for the Halawa Valley Cultural Hike with The Solatorio Family. From the beginning, you are immersed in local culture as your guide blows a conch shell to let the family know that we care coming. After a gift exchange greeting, we were given a wonderful talk about the valley, the people and the culture of the area. Then, we went on a hike up the valley to a waterfall, where we were free to swim, relax and rest. It was a highlight of our trip to Molokai. Be sure to pack water, snacks and wer GOOD hiking shoes/sandals!

We drove out to Halawa Bay on our own from Kaunakakai town. The route takes you along the waterfront as far as Murphy's Beach and then up into the hills to Puu O Hoku Ranch. Along the way, watch out for Kewala Plantation, Kakahaia Wildlife reserve, The Pukahuwa Battlefield where Kamehameha defeated the island rulers to add Molokai to his kingdom, the Smith-Bronte Landing (or crash) site, the Bellstone, Lihuopae Haiue (difficult to find), the Pukoo Grindz store (great for local lunches and strong coffee), a number of taro patches, the Dunbar Cottages, and lots of beaches, harbours and lookout points. If you are lucky you might see a mongoose (which we did see), deer, and even a nene. The road is paved all the way to Halawa, although you should watch for rock fall on the switchbacks down int to he bay. We regretfully had not booked the hike up to the falls, and the local tropical flower farms was closed the day we drove out. We parked at the end of the road and walked the beaches and waded in the river, and then headed back. If I ever go to Molokai again, I will book the hike and if it's available might stay at one of the cottages at Puu O Hoku ranch because this end of the island is really something.

Beautiful views. Be patient, pack a lunch snacks and drinks. You can drive as far as the park but cannot go further unless you are with a tour. Would have loved to go further in but drive is on private land. We did not hike into the gorgeous falls. You need to be in good physical health to do so. But those views in were spectacular. The waves were way to strong to swim but we did see one family swim/snorkel in a fish pond area where it was more calm.

I have traveled extensively and I can honestly say this place was in the top two. Imagine being dropped in Jurassic World with hardly anyone else about. People think that my pictures are photoshopped all the time and I have to assure then that they are real and I was standing there when I took the picture. Incredible.

This was an incredible cultural experience from the source. Greg is actively in position to carry the torch of teaching people about their true Hawaiian experience. The roots of their family in this valley go back to when there was a thriving community prior to the 1946 tsunami, where all survived due to working together to escape the waters.
Fascinating stories from am engaging, charismatic family, I wish I had unlimited time and opportunity to listen. I can't emphasize enough what an amazing opportunity this was.
I feel like many other reviews glossed over the reality of the hike to the waterfall. For young, fit hikers, this is probably what I would consider a moderate hike. For anyone whose "fitness" is challenged-- whether by health, condition, agree, etc., I would call this difficult. There is some clambering over boulders, jumping from rock to rock, wading, etc. There's ducking under branches, getting over fallen logs, etc., So requires strength, flexibility and agility.
Tanner and Devak are impressively patient and knowledgable.
Make sure to do your due diligence on planning the time it takes to drive there and back. The drive is amazingly beautiful, but is a one lane road for the last few miles.
There is supposedly a good ahi sandwich available at a place near mile marker 16, but it was closed by the time we got by there on our way back.
