1 of 3. Waipio Valley - On the North Shore of the Island of Hawaii was once very heavily populated by Hawaiian's and later Chinese immigrants. The valley was very active in agriculture and had churches, restaurants, hotels and a post office. During 1946, a devastating tsunami swept large waves back into the valley. Most of the people living in the valley left and today the valley is sparsely populated with a few taro and vegetable farms. Tour companies offer horseback riding and wagon rides on the valley floor.
