Seven Sacred Pools
The absolute epitome of tropical paradise, the Seven Sacred Pools in Oheo Gulch are the stuff daydreams are made of. Like pearls on a string, these world renowned pools (also known as the Pools of Oheo) are joined together by bubbling streams and small waterfalls—their natural beauty beckoning locals as well as weary city-dwellers from far and wide to take a dip in their tranquil waters. That said, the area draws large crowds (especially during the weekends) so arrive early. Fed by the Pipiwai streams a couple of miles inland, the pools may be closed off to swimmers depending on weather conditions, as flash flooding can occur.
