“Free view from the highway”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This was a royal Hawaiian location for Hawaiian Kings & Queens. Its visible from the highway. and easily photographed if the fog is not to thick. its a nice venue to view. Beware not to run over the stupid friken chickens.

“No hike required. Beautiful view.”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Opaeka'a Falls: Double waterfall with beautiful view all around. Cross the street to see Wailua River and lovely scenery there too. Lots of parking available.

“Natural Beauty”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We saw Opaekaa Falls, along with the nearby Wailua Falls. Very easy drive and we parked in the parking lot that has the restrooms. Looked out at the scenery there and crossed the road to see the beautiful falls. I love natural beauty! I just wish we could have figured out how to get access to the bottom (same issue with Wailua Falls). I have seen pictures with people at the bottom and it would have been nice to see from a different angle but there area signs of warning throughout.

“Drive-up access, nice view”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This waterfall is really easy to see, close to town, very pretty area and you can also see nice views of the Wailua River if you cross the road to look over the other side. Very worth the few minutes it takes to drive up to the parking area and a nice companion waterfall to see when visiting Wailua Falls, which is not far away.

“Easy to see, close to main road”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

A very easy to see waterfall (no cost) about two miles from Kapa'a, close to mile marker 6 on Highway 56. If you have an extra 15-20 minutes stop by and take a look. The water flow fluctuates and on the day we went it was fairly light but still very pretty. Located off Kuamo'o Road (Highway 580) mountain side. Views of Wailua River across the street. The pool below these 150+ foot falls is on private property so no trail access. No lights in the area at night and pitch black outside (falls are not visible at night) making the stars even more brilliant.
