Five Most Beautiful Waterfalls in Hawaii

The most beautiful waterfalls in Hawaii. The state of Hawaii is fantastic place to visit and take a vacation. Seeing waterfalls on the islands is a lot of fun, and in my opinion really adds to the experience of visiting Hawaii. Most of these waterfalls can be driven to and seen without too much trouble, but a couple require a helicopter ride. If you take a helicopter ride in Hawaii, you will almost certainly not regret it. The views from up in the air are spectacular, including waterfalls.

These are the five most beautiful waterfalls in the state of Hawaii. Hawaii is full of waterfalls, and trying to choose the five most beautiful is not easy. I've been to Hawaii and to a couple of the waterfalls on this list. The rest were chosen based upon the waterfalls I would most like to see on my next vacation to Hawaii.
