In a nutshell: A sleepy taro-farming town with an historic church and impressive view of the enormous Lower Waikani Falls.
Minuses: Nothing else here.
Sound-bite: “Wow, I’d like to see that every day out of my kitchen window!”

Wailua is a small village offering little for visitors than a diversion off the highway to take a few peeks at the large Lower Waikani Falls in the distance. The falls are an impressive sight, and to imagine people live with that view when they let the dog out of the back door is surreal.

This is a very small village with nothing more than the view of the falls to offer visitors. If you aren’t trying to scour every sight on the Road to Hana, skip riding into the village as the view from the roadside or Wailua Valley State Wayside up above is more impressive (though you won’t see the falls from there.)
