Waipiʻo Valley is a valley located in the Hamakua District of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. “Waipiʻo” means “curved water” in the Hawaiian language.

It was the capital and permanent residence of many early Hawaiian aliʻi (kings) up until the time of King ʻUmi. A place celebrated for its nioi tree (Eugenia reinwardtiana) known as the “Nioi wela o Paʻakalana” (The burning Nioi of Paʻakalana). It was the location of the ancient grass palace of the ancient kings of Hawaii with the nioi stands. Kahekili II raided Waipiʻo in the 18th century and burned the four sacred trees to the ground.

A foot trail called Waimanu or Muliwai Trail leads down a steep path to the Waimanu Valley, which is not accessible by automobile. At upper end of the valley, Waimanu Gap at 2,089 feet (637 m) elevation leads to the south end of Waimanu Valley.

The valley was the site of the final scene in the 1995 sci-fi film Waterworld, at which the main characters found dry land
