Create an itinerary including Mermaid Caves
See if you can spot those fabled creatures of the sea at Mermaid Caves, still a kind of off-the-map hidden destination in Hawaii. The hike and the climb may be a bit difficult, especially for those with limited skills in adventure activities. The photos opps at the cave may be well worth the effort, but keep in mind that you'll have to conquer jagged lava rocks and descent through a hole into an underground cavern. Go there only during low tide and calm weather. Put Mermaid Caves into our Waianae trip builder website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Waianae.
