Rainbow Falls is located in Hilo, Hawaii. It is 80 feet tall and almost 100 feet in diameter. The falls are part of the Hawaii State Parks. Known in the Hawaiian language as Waiānuenue (literally “rainbow water”), the falls flows over a natural lava cave, the mythological home to Hina, an a Hawaiian goddess.  At Rainbow Falls, the Wailuku River rushes into a large pool below. The gorge is blanketed by lush, dense tropical foliage and the turquoise colored pool is bordered by beautiful wild ginger. The falls are accessed at Wailuku River State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.
