Several tourists come to the lookout. It's a great view and when you cross the road you get an awesome view of the Wiamea River.

The Opaeka’a Falls are a quick viewpoint and it’s a nice place to stretch your legs. You can cross the street and also check out a view of the Wailua Heritage trail. Very scenic!

To start: the falls are absolutely beautifyl. However, at the parking lot we found some food sellers. One lady sold 100% gluten free mango bread and coconut pineapple bread. WARNING: don’t buy this bread if you are a real Celiac. I got terribly sick after...More

Yes, the state could help this be more stunning if some of the trees were taken down. Otherwise, it was worth viewing, but we saw many other more exceptional falls on the island.
