First stop; Opaeka'a Falls, (pronounced oh-pie-kah-ah), if you remember that you will be doing better than me. It plunges hundreds of feet to the pool below. Opaeka'a means, "rolling shrimp," which refers to tasty native crustaceans that were once so abundant they could be seen tumbling in the falls.
I can't imagine living in the house just above the falls. What a view!
For a closer look;
Next stop; Wailua Falls. You may recognize this one from the opening sequences of Fantasy Island.
Last stop; Secret Falls. These beautiful 150 falls are found by taking a kayak trip down the Wailua River, then hiking thru the lush tropical jungle.
I think the first view of the falls as you walk into the opening is just the best of all......
I can still feel the cool spray from the falls. The water was too cold for us to swim in but finding a nice rock to sit and just take in the beauty was worth the work of getting there.
Guess I should add that these falls are all in Kaua'i.....paradise!
