After a short and interesting drive you arrive at a small parking lot and the falls are right there. Not crowded later in the day and plenty of space at the view point for picture taking. We did look for a trail to the base and found one leading off further back from the view point that looked well used although there is plenty of signage warning against it. Approaching dark not signage deterred us but may be worth a explore. Well worth the short drive and we also had the excitement of a large wild boar jumping in front of the car on the road back to add to the experience.

Pros: Its a great view of the falls from roadside. However, just standing there for a few minutes was relieving with the cool breeze from the green surroundings.

Cons: You can't go closer to the falls though.

Nice waterfalls in a lovely valley in lush green. Easy accessible by road with a nice viewing point at the rim of the valley.

This was well worth the trip it was one on the most beautiful places we visited. The falls are very breath taking.

My wife and I learned how close Wailua Falls were to Lihue when we went on a mountain tubing trip. The next day, we took a helicopter ride and saw it from the air so after we landed we went to the well know back-drop from Fantasy Island where Tatu yells "De plane! De plane!" Be sure to buy some bread from the lady selling from the bed of her truck-good stuff.
