Houkipa- After the bamboo forest/waterfall scramble, we stopped at the overlook. During the winter, this bay is a cauldron of big waves and dominating locals but this evening it was very chill, head high sets and low-keyed.

Journey Into the Bamboo Forest- (IPhone Pics And a Jungle Voyage)
Sianie and I were told about an amazing hike through a dense bamboo forest, through and alongside a rocky stream, into various pools, up various waterfalls. The last, highest falls were acquired by ditching all your clothes and gear, swimming 200 feet through a canyon, scaling a small cliff to arrive at huge pool surrounded by 60 ft stone walls. It was lush, magical, slightly dangerous and unforgettable.
