  1. FYI, The picture you are showing is famous, but it is NOT Opaeka’a falls. That is actually Wailua falls, which is made famous by it’s appearance at the beginning of the TV show Fantasy Island. You may want to correct your post. Aloha!

  2. Doh, you’re absolutely right! I’m not sure how that happened but I changed out the image with the correct one. Mahalo for letting me know.

  3. Sheila,
    The picture is very beautiful like I saw in a movie. In Thailand the waterfall that look almost the same Wailua fall is in Ranong, 200 km afar from my place Phuket. Beautiful!!!
