This is easy to add to a driving tour, not far from Lihue. Beautiful falls. A bit hard to get fully in a picture due to the vegetation.

Well worth the short drive. Amazing sight. Right there at the end of the road no hiking. They could use more parking.

We just drove there, parked after waiting for a couple of minutes, took pictures and left. Be ready to wait for a parking spot if you arrive during peak hours. You cannot see the full falls, but the view is great anyways.

Waterfalls are great to see. And for those who remember watching the tv show “Fantasy Island”, this one May being back memories. But we and everyone else around us thought about 10 minutes was enough.
