What? : One of the most beautiful waterfalls on the island of Kauai, parking is just at the viewing point.


When? : Year round


Due note 1: During mid-day parking lot can be full.


Due note 2: If you plan to hike down the cliff do not bring flipflops !


My thoughts: this is indeed a very nice waterfall, it was fun coming here even for a short time.

The visit:

We came late so we did not have the time to go down to the river below so we just took some pictures and went home.

This is indeed one of the most beautiful waterfalls on the island of Kauai.


If you want to go down look for a small path at the south end of the parking lot. The path down is very steep, and has ropes tied to the trees to help you go down to the bottom. As any other place in Kauai, after rain the trail become muddy and slippery so take this into account when decide if to go down or watch it from the road.
