Peʻepeʻe Falls & Boiling Pots

Waterfall in Hilo

Two miles past Rainbow Falls, and just as impressive, is another drive-up lookout, Peʻepeʻe Falls & Boiling Pots. This unique series of falls cascading into swirling, bubbling pools (or 'boiling pots') might tempt you to hike in, but don't even think about plunging in; currents are treacherous and many drownings have occurred. Restrooms are available.
