Something that everyone can afford- beautiful, breathtaking views. Easy access - and not a long way to go.. Enjoyed reading about the falls & other points of interest with info provided on signs....a must stop- its free and will not consume a lot of valuable time....

The Opaekaa Falls are worthwhile seeing because they are so easy to get to. Minimal effort and no hike because you see the views from the lookout next to the parking lot. Fun to see all the chickens running around the parking lot. Scenic and good for some pictures.

Go down the road across the street for some great views of the river.

These falls aren't the most impressive on the island, but they are definitely worth a stop. It's an easy drive off the main highway to reach the overlook for the falls - outstanding views of the valley below. Across the street, there is a great view of the river and a recreated Hawaiian village, so there's a little more to see than just the falls. The parking lot can be crowded, but that's to be expected at a site that is so accessible on this island. You can't get close to the falls, but with a good camera, you can get some lovely pictures.

A nice scenic waterfall, especially if it been raining.

Like: Its an easy drive. The main scenic viewing area has decent parking and bathrooms.
Dislikes: The standard view is pretty far from the falls. It is still very scenic and I got some nice photos, but you are going to be pretty far away, unless you plan to do a hike.

Yes, there are better falls, and others that you can get close to, but I think its still worth the visit.
