Visit Wailua River State Park and marvel at the dramatic double cascade of Wailau Falls. The falls were featured in the television series Fantasy Island in case you’re getting that déja vù feeling. There is easy access from the parking area, but be patient as parking is limited. Hiking down is not recommended. Nearby, Opaekaa Falls tumble 151-feet over a basalt cliff, framed beautifully by lush vegetation. Rich in history, discover the archaeological sites of Poliahu Heiau, Kalaeokamanu Heiau, and Malae Heiau. Interpretive panels explain the cultural and religious significance of these sacred sites.
