If you have ever dreamed of seeing a double-tiered waterfall, then you are about to bring that dream to life at gorgeous Wailua Falls. Right after mile marker 1 on Highway 56 there will be a road on your left, Maalo Road (Highway 583), accompanied by a sign pointing you in the direction of the falls. Take the short drive up this road which will end at a parking lot overlooking the falls. If you’re lucky, the sun will be at the right angle, and you will get a beautiful rainbow extending out from the base of the falls in the mist.
Wailua Falls is approximately 85 feet high (not 170+ feet as some books have reported) and drops into a pool over 30 feet deep. Don not even think of diving off this waterfall as the leap can be, and has been proven, fatal. Ancient Hawaiians once learned as much when proving their manhood (or foolishness, take your pick).
If you have to get to the bottom of the falls (which, mind you, the county advises against) then there are two trails that make the journey quite a bit safer than jumping off. You will notice the first trail by the guard rail at the end of the parking lot. This is the steeper and often muddier trail. We advise against using this trail at all costs. If you head a little over a quarter mile back down the road however you will find a easier, less steep, trail. It is longer than the first trail, but it is a lot easier to hike, though please keep in mind again that the county advises against the hike.
The signs erected at each trail are a testament to this fact. In our opinion, the falls are best seen safely from above at the overlook. Please do not throw rocks and other items into the pool below (which likely will be partially out of view). County warning or not, some people DO hike to the bottom of the falls and likely will not like being showered with anything but water. If you visit during a time of especially high precipitation on the island, the falls can actually turn into a single giant and raging falls. During high flow the falls often also has a third tier flow. We believe the falls is most beautiful when it has a moderate flow. When seen from the air (image directly above), it is fascinating to see what the topography around the falls looks like.
