We think the most beautiful part of the island is the valley in Kualoa Ranch. You can only see it if you take one of the tours the ranch offers and you will want to book this in advance since they sell out fast! They filmed the TV show Lost there, as well as 30 or so movies as well!

Waimea - Oahu North Shore

Waimea Falls Park is about a 10 to 15 minute drive from the villa. There is a small entry fee and they give a little hiking map and you can walk along trails of partially manicured and partially wildflowers and trees to Waimea Falls – the walk is really beautiful, but it is more of a stroll then a hike.  You can choose to take the paved paths along the manicured gardens or the trails through the natural growth.
