The mysterious-looking Waipio Valley cliffs edge out into the Pacific along Hawaii Island’s north shore.
This spot is well-known and loved by many on the island of Hawaii for its amazing cliffs, lush valley floor, crazy steep road, and its residents.
The Waipio Valley has very little in the way of modern conveniences like electricity, water treatment, and plumbing. People choosing to live here typically do so because it offers seclusion or off-the-gridness that they cannot find elsewhere. This of course gives rise to all sorts of rumors about the people who make that choice.
Waipio has been the tipping point for more than a few visitors to Hawaii in deciding to make the Big Island their home. It enchants you with its green valley, waterfalls, and vision of simpler, more pastoral times.
