Manoa Valley

Manoa är både en dal och ett kvarter som är en del av Honolulu. Det är cirka tre mil från centrum och mindre än en mil från Waikiki Beach.

Manoa Valley-kvarteret är till stor del bostadsområde, men det finns också ett universitetsområde här och omges av de höga, gröna bergen i Ko'olau Range. På 1800-talet var Manoa miljö för Hawaiis första sockerrörs- och kaffeplantager.

På grund av geografin och placeringen av Manoa Valley regnar det åtminstone lite varje dag - regnbågar förekommer ofta - och det är alltid oerhört frodig. En av huvudattraktionerna är de 150 fot långa Manoa Falls.

When to get there

Thanks to its ever-present rain, the Manoa Valley is beautifully lush all year round. Oahu has a consistently mild, tropical climate and generally, the best time to visit is outside of peak winter and summer seasons. The months of April, May, September, and October typically promise good weather and smaller crowds than during peak season.
