Wailua Falls

Saves: 53
Check-ins: 22
Those with a keen eye may recognize Wailua Falls from the opening sequence of the ‘70s and ‘80s hit show Fantasy Island. It was the perfect bit of scenery to represent the mythical isle where fantasy became reality, as nothing quite epitomizes tropical paradise like these dramatic 80-plus foot tall falls. What’s more, you don’t even have to hike through the dense jungle to see Wailua as they’re clearly, and conveniently, visible from Maalo Road. Come early when the morning sun hits the water at just the right angles to give you a glimpse of some colorful rainbows within the swirling mist.
