The small town of Honomu, HI, is home to Akaka Falls, a 422 ft waterfall. It is located 3.6 miles southwest of Honomu, just off of Akaka Falls Road (Highway 220). The waterfall leads into Kolekole Stream, leading out into the ocean. The falls are located in the Akaka Falls State Park, which also boasts multiple rain forest hiking paths leading to Akaka Falls as well as its sister waterfall, Kahuna Falls. The Akaka Falls State Park is also home to an ecosystem of marine life, birds, and reptiles.
