This is one of my favorite waterfalls on Kauai. It is located right along Kuamoo Rd so it is easily seen from the road. There is a place to pull in and park and a bridge along the roadside to get a closer view. It really is amazing and even more so when you view it after a rain. The name of Opaeka'a means rolling shrimp because there use to be shrimp in the pool below the falls that rolled as the water hit the pool.

This is a beautiful Waterfall that you must see if you are on Kauai. It is easy to find. It is right off the road so anyone can get a good look. You can take photos very easily. Depending on the recent rain it can be flowing different. Will go back to see it again when back on Kauai.

Quick drive from Kapaa and close to Wailua river, so you can do both for a 1/2 day adventure. Homemade baked goods sold by a local (cannot remember her name). If you aren't quick enough, she'll sell out!

This is a pretty waterfall. It's not spectacular but very pretty and it is super easy to get to. I would recommend checking it out. It has a nice sized parking lot and public restrooms. There is also a nice grassy area and picnic tables.
