“Historical site, with beautiful views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Nice drive, ample parking, clean facilities, picnic areas. View the mountains, ocean, Wailua River, and Falls all right in close proximity.

“Viewed from a Distance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

The falls are viewed from a simple roadside pull over and are qute some distance away. However, they are just beautiful and make for great photos. In this area, be sure to look in all directions. You have a view of the river in one direction, a view of the ocean in another and a view of the mountains. Be sure to cross the road to see the river, but be careful. Most drivers know how to stop for people in a cross walk, a few do not. It only takes one. The road getting to the falls is half the fun. The road continues through a range of agricultural areas, parks, and small communities, looping back to Kapaa.

“Nice quick detour if you're in Kapa'a!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

If you are staying in Kapa’a or driving through on your way to Princeville its worth the 4 mile roundtrip detour to see the falls. You can see the falls and be back on your way in 15 mins. They are large waterfalls but far away to see.

“One accessible waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Kaua'i - especially the North Shore and interior - is blessed with abundant rainfall and this is reflected in the many rivers and waterfalls. The setting of Opaekaa Falls provides an experience of the lushness of Kaua'i and its endlessly dramatic landscape of volcanic formations and along with Wailua Falls is an easy "must visit" for anybody interested in waterfalls.
