While this island is named the ‘Garden’ island, be sure not to miss the cascading waterfalls! The luscious north part of the island is very tropical due to the heavy amount of rain, but the hidden waterfalls are spectacular!

Beautiful falls. We wanted to take the kayak trip to it, but the rains had closed trails, so we ended up driving up to it. Very close to town. Easy parking. Enjoy.

Worth taking the time to visit. Didnt take any time to get there from Lihue. Parking was challenging, but it was well worth it!

Close to Kapa'a on Kauai. The road ends at the waterfall. Be alert to traffic as the road is narrow. Limited parking but worth the effort to wait on parking spot.

We arrived on Kauai after a week of heavy rain and the falls were spectacular. Very easy access since it is right alongside the road.
