The Wailua Falls of Kauai is located on at the very end of Highway 583. You can't miss this amazing water fall just follow the road until the end. Wailua Falls is 80 feet high and offers visitors a non-stop view of what Hawaii has to offer.
The Wailua Falls was made famous when it was featured in the opening scene of the popular television show, Fantasy Island. Since then visitors from all over the world has made the short drive up Highway 583 to view this wonderful waterfall.
The falls can dramatically change appearance depending on rain and the river's flow. The best time to view this spectacular site is early morning as the sun shines on the falls. The brave and sure-footed can can take a slippery trail down to the bottom of the falls and take a dip in the cool, mountain water.
In ancient times, warriors would leap from the top of the falls to prove their bravery. This is strongly discouraged, as is the hike to the top of the falls, as any leap or fall could be fatal.
