Kauai’s Wailua Falls

Wailua Falls

These impressive twin (and sometimes triple) falls are located on the East side of Kauai and are easily found off of Ma’alo Road (Hwy 583).  (Click here to see them on a Google Map.)

Here’s our video of Wailua Falls

The best time of day to see these falls is in the morning when the sun is shining more directly on them, but we wouldn’t hesitate to see them any time of day.

While you are in this area, it’s also worth checking out Opaeka’a Falls that are located Kuamo’o Road (Hwy 580).

  1. Here’s some TV Trivia. The Wailua Falls may look familiar. They were featured each week in the opening scenes of the TV show, “Fantasy Island” (1978-84).

    I may take a spin by the falls today. Great photo, Sheila!



  2. Rob – Yeah, that’s neat, isn’t it?! I spent some time today trying to find a photo or a brief video of the water falls from the Fantasy Island intro to include in the post before I published it. Unfortunately I couldn’t find one. The show must be too “old skool” for it to be on sites like YouTube.

    Kauai, in general, has been on film quite a bit….and with very good cause.
