I loved Wailua Falls.


We hiked to the bottom and swam in the gigantic pool. We got such beautiful pictures of our family.

The hike was not well marked and very steep. We did not take the route that people have died on.

The book Kauai Revealed told us of another trail head to take. It was steep. Very steep. But do-able for me at 4 months pregnant and hubby with a 9 m/o baby in a pack.

There were only a couple other families there when we were there in Feb 2007. There were lots of people at the top, but very few took the hike. I have lots of pictures if you want them.

Bottom of Wailua Falls
by: World of Waterfalls

I think it's cool that you guys were able to go to the bottom and it's pretty safe. Were there barricades or closure signs for the way that you took?

I regretted that we overlooked the Kaua'i Revealed directions to the bottom of Wailua Falls. I was tempted to go back to the falls later in the trip when I realized we missed our opportunity earlier.

However, a few days prior to our trip, a pair of women died over Opaeka'a Falls trying to get to the bottom of that one. So Julie was spooked and she managed to talk me out of trying for the base of either waterfall.
