Wailua River State Park reviews
Best way to see these falls is from the sky. The vista point doesn’t give them justice but given their proximity to the main road they do still remain a good drive out destination. The basin of the falls is not something you can get to from the vista point, this is a view not touch experience. Remember to like my comments if you found them useful!
Great view from the top and even better from the bottom. There is a way down before you approach the area where everyone is standing (To the right where the guard rail is before the fence begins there is 2 ways to get down one is harder than the other. The easier route has ropes to help go up or down the steep hill. You can swim at the bottom even go behind the waterfall though that looked dangerous as there were piles of boulders from erosion I didn't want to get crushed.
