Wailua Falls is located North of Lihue, at the south end of the Wailua River on the island of Kauai and is easily accessible by car. There’s a small parking lot at the top and a lookout area to view the falls. Water flows from two streams down 80 feet from this breathtaking waterfall in Hawaii and can get very large depending on the time of year and current rainfall.
Although extremely dangerous it is possible to hike down to the pool below. The path crosses private property and is often washed out or muddy after heavy rainfall. Definitely best viewed from above at the viewpoint or from a helicopter.
