Wailua Falls are so easily accessible it's surprising....just 4 miles off the main road, and you can drive and park by an incredible view of the falls.

Makawehi Lithified Cliffs Poipu 10.0 km away
#2 of 14 Nature & Parks in Poipu
The thing I enjoyed most about this tropical nature hike was each cliff and each side of the cliff was a little different from the next.
We ran every morning from the Poipu Beach Park, out past the Hyatt, to the horse stables and got on the cliff trails and ran back to Shipwreck Beach and home for a 8-10km loop.

Secret Falls (Uluwehi Falls) Wailua 8.3 km away
#2 of 5 Nature & Parks in Wailua
Go on your own at your own pace, enjoy a leisurely trip at your own pace on the river, hike at your own pace and be a part of nature, and finally arrive at the falls where you can take a swim.
So I have given reviews on the Secret Falls trail and the Wailua River State Park which are both required to access this beautiful waterfall.

Spent a lovely couple of hours on a moderate hike along the ridgeline with great views on either side and lovely places to stop and simply enjoy nature and the scenery.
