Opaekaa Falls, Kauai

  • Name: Opaekaa Falls
  • Where: In Wailua, 3 kilometres up Route 580
  • What: One of Kauai’s most accessible major waterfalls

Cascading down into a hidden pool, this waterfall is easily one of the island's most accessible major waterfalls. Located on the East Side about 3 kilometres up Kuamoo Road (Route 580) from Hwy. 56, signs clearly point to the roadside lookout on the right. This convenient stop makes for a memorable photo opportunity. "Opaekaa" means "rolling shrimp," which were once abundant in the stream. Walk uphill from the Opaekaa lookout and across the road for another great view of the Wailua River valley and interior plains beyond.
