The 'W' day at Waimea Valley and Waimea Bay



Beam and I have the privilege to get into Waimea Valley for free instead of paying $12 (Student price) to get in since we both have Polynesian Cultural Center Employee ID. I must say that the ID is pretty handy when going to certain places around the island. We visited Waimea Valley twice in a week, one on our own and the second time was with our friend that host us when we were in California, the LeChuga's couple. Since we could bring in one guests, we brought them in and they paid for a shuttle that would take us up to the waterfall.

There is a lot of beautiful plants and flowers but I am not a huge fans of those. I am only a huge fan of waterfall. I remember coming to Waimea Valley back in 2011 where you could just swim without a life jacket. Things are definitely different now and they require you to wear a life jacket of course for your safety. 

Right after Waimea Valley, my wife and I went to Waimea Bay to jump off the rock. I jumped twice trying to convince my wife to jump. She couldn't jump because she was too afraid which is definitely understandable. We definitely have a fun day spending our time together in Waimea Valley and Waimea Bay. This place does bring back memories when I was here 5 years ago. Time does past by really fast.






Waimea Bay has always been a popular attractions to the locals because of the cliff jumping. I uploaded some of the sample of the pictures of how you could actually jump off the cliff. You could basically do whatever you are comfortable with such as back flip or front flip or maybe a normal jump.

There hasn't been any death as far as I know. However it could get really dangerous if the wave is super strong. They might even closed off the cliff jumping just to protect you from being pulled away from the waves.

Lifeguards were placed in this area to protect you, however, you do need to be careful if the waves are really strong. I am almost got drown once and it's definitely not a fun experience.

Enjoy the "W" day in both Waimea Valley and Waimea Bay!
