Another pretty waterfall

If you're around, check out this waterfall just for the view. Not a whole lot to do other than that, so take a few awesome pictures and you'll be satisfied!

Quick drive up to the lookout access was perfect for a scenic tour on our first day on the island! Major plus, was it didn't require any hiking! You can walk up along the fenced in sidewalk to get a better look, and cross over on the crosswalk to get another beautiful view of the river. You could get a... More

If you are going to falls to get a good picture too, note that most of the photos were taken with a zoom lens. The viewing spot is right off the road, behind a low fence.

This was an easy stop and no hiking. You can cross the road and see a pretty valley and Hawaiian village & river also.

Even though we can't get close to these Falls, the scene is gorgeous. Mountains in the background, birds flying down in the valley by the falls. It's a quick, easy stop.

This was part of our shore excursion as we traveled around by bus. We had brief stop here for a photo op. Very easy to get to. Just a few steps from the parking lot. Scenery is great here. There was more across the street that we did not get to see. Doesn't take a lot of time here to... More

This is a very pretty view. It's quick and not hard to find. Parking is easy and if you follow the walkway across the road you get other photo opportunities!

The falls are super easy to get to, just park and step out of your car so easily accessible for all. Not huge falls but the hillside is beautiful. Be sure to cross the street and enjoy the views of the river and hillside. It was across the street from the falls that we saw the Hawaiian village down below.... More

This is just a short drive off the main high road and well worth your time. Always a good photo op although I think you'll get your better photo's in the morning when your not looking into the sun.

Another stunning water fall that can be seen with little to no effort. Plenty of parking. Some overgrowth but can appreciate falls from a few different angles.
