The week we were there was rainy, overcast, and not all that warm. We still had the best time. We rented the kayak/canoes from the Hawaiian village and parked them before trekking up to the falls. Slipping in the ruts, sliding on the mud, and...More

Beautiful waterfall - easy to drive to and so beautiful. You cannot actually get to the bottom, but the view is spectacular. Lots of locals selling coconut water and banana bread - I highly recommend the banana bread!

This was the famed sight of the falls for Fantasy Island. It is kind of hard to imagine it that way but is still beautiful and a worthwhile place to see.

It is a waterfall that is easy to get to, drive up and enjoy. No cost for parking, and an easy drive. A treasure waiting for you.

This waterfall was beautiful. Very relaxing to sit for a few and listen too. Would recommend going to see.

Well worth the visit to see these beautiful falls. Unfortunately finding a place to park the car was not easy. Avoid peak periods.

We went to the Wailua Falls today. Unfortunately, there had been very heavy rain fall overnight, so it was not safe to hike down. It's a beautiful view even without the hike. I loved how many different shades of green we were able to see....More

You can check out the falls from the road. If there is a tyrail it will be a big downhill and probably steep down and tough to get back up. There are falls nearby that have a nice easy hike: I think the name is Hookipa... More

It's not particularly steep, but can be problematic during rainy periods. Active terms and adults should have no problems. Then there's the nice dip in the pool at the end.
