3 Maui Waterfalls You Can Swim In

Seven Sacred Pools (‘Ohe’o Gulch)

The Seven Sacred Pools, also known as the ‘Ohe’o Gulch, is a wonderful spot to explore. Located at the heart of Maui’s Haleakala National Park, the Seven Sacred Pools are a series of waterfalls that are truly magical. Hike on the 2-mile Pipiwai Trail and witness a breathtaking bamboo jungle and dramatic cliffs. Then, bathe in the two lower pools and find a nice spot to share a picnic with your loved ones!

Tip: Obey the signs and avoid swimming if you don’t see any other swimmers in the water!

Upper Puohokamoa Falls

Located near mile marker 12 on the Road to Hana, Upper Puohokamoa Falls is a real gem worth a stop. The falls are just two minutes from the road, so you can take a break from your road trip and go for a nice swim. If you have more time and are feeling adventurous, make your way up the left side of the falls and hike to some other hidden pools. If you visit during the high season, you will even see gorgeous ginger blooms!
