A must see. We enjoyed the view while sipping on some ice cold coconuts we bought from one of the vendors there.

This is a short 4 mile drive off of the main highway and road takes you right along the falls. Worth the drive!

Wailua Falls is one of a few scenic lookout points on the island of Kauai. The drive over from Lihue is brief. If you don't plan to swim, I recommend going either early or late in the day since finding parking takes longer than viewing the falls. The path is not clear, but behind the wire fence to the right there is one leading down to the falls. I opted not to go, but another group did. The locals recommend bringing mosquito repellent.

Personally, this was one of the better falls because you are closer. However, the falls do not compare to the ones on Maui that are countless and easily accessible for a swim.

This is one of the traditional falls used in movies...it's beautiful and right off the highway. You can easily park your car, take pictures, and see the falls. Great for senior visitors and kids as the access is all paved.
