“Flowing over a natural lava cave”

Rainbow (Waiānuenue) Falls is a waterfall located in Hilo, Hawaii. It is 80 ft (24 m) tall and almost 100 ft (30 m) in diameter. The falls are part of the Hawai'i State Parks. There is no fee to see the falls. Known in the Hawaiian language as Waiānuenue (literally "rainbow water"), the falls flows over a natural lava cave, the mythological home to Hina, an ancient Hawaiian goddess.   Rainbow Falls derives its name from the fact that, on sunny mornings around 10AM, rainbows can be seen in the mist thrown up by the waterfall. Timing this is quite a feat in Hilo! Sun is scarce, so you'll want to plan for a day with a clear morning, or wait until clouds pass. It is also best to come the day after a heavy rain storm so that the falls are running strong.
