There are numerous other Molokai Waterfalls residing on the steep sea cliffs on the north shore of the island.

I created this page to try to show the ones we’ve seen in our trips to Moloka’i (typically via helicopter tour).

Most of them have very temporary or seasonal flows, and this includes the named Kahiwa Falls, which is often quoted as the highest waterfall in Hawai’i. However, I suspect that this claim is probably inaccurate.

In addition to named falls such as Kahiwa Falls, there is also Olo’upena Falls, Haloku Falls, Pu’uka’oku Falls, Wailele Falls as well as numerous other unnamed ones.

To be honest, I had a hard time figuring out which one was which. I guess sometimes you’re better off just enjoying the experience and worrying less about geographical details.


To my knowledge, the waterfalls on this page do not belong to a formal authority. However, for information or inquiries about the general area as well as current conditions, you may want to try visiting the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) website.


See the Honokohau Falls page for directions to the Maui helipad. The drive from the West Maui resorts like say Lahaina to Kahului was roughly 45 minutes.

I ran 78 commercial trips down Koolau Moloka'i in the 1980's but since it was summer (the only time safe to kayak) we never saw Haloku pumping. On my Hurricane John honeymoon trip in August 1995 we did see… ...Read More
