Manoa Falls

Just a short drive from Waikiki, this is one of Oahu’s eco-tourist friendly destinations.  Hikers can go on their own, or take part in an excursion conducted by local tour outfits to trek through the fern-filled Manoa Valley to see the beautiful Manoa Falls and surrounding rain forests (and its plants & birds).  This site was used by Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg to shoot the famed movie “Jurassic Park.”
