The Big Island has closed Waipio Valley indefinitely. see comments below:
"Waipio Valley Road is in imminent threat of slope and roadway failure threatening the health, safety and welfare of the people," the rule stated. Any sort of tourism activities, including hiking, horseback riding and camping, as well as volunteer stewardship programs are prohibited.
"This is not something that we wanted to do, it's something that we had to do," said Roth in a community meeting last month. "This is purely about safety."
The decision was based on a geotechnical assessment, which recommended the immediate need to mitigate the threat of rockfalls and slope instability.
"The plan is to get this road fixed as quickly as possible so people can get down to the valley in a safe manner," said Roth. It will take about a year to 18 months of planning and permitting before roadwork begins.
You will need to make a reservation to hike Diamond Head State Monument. Any out of state visitors will need to make a reservation starting May 12, 2022. The reservation system will be available starting on April 28, 2022 . There are parking and entrance fees.
In case you did not know Kauai requires a reservation for visiting Haena State Park and Maui is requiring a reservation for Waianapanapa State Park as well.
Great News! Hawaiian Airlines will be installing FREE WIFI on its airlines. The long haul planes will be the ones to get the WIFI. All inter island planes at this date will not be included in the wifi updates.
There are many Hawaii vacations available right now. Hawaii has opened up and is no longer requiring vaccination passport or testing before visiting the islands. It is a great time to visit .
