Not all of Kauai’s gems are accessible by
road. Secret Falls on the Wailua River is hidden from all but the most intrepid travelers. The falls are about 30 minutes from Wailua’s
river mouth. You can rent kayaks at many spots near the mouth, or for a shortened trip, launch
from the boat ramp right at the Kamokila Hawaiian Village. Turn right at a fork in the river and follow
the waterway until it ends. Pull your boat onshore and you’re on your way. From here it’s another hour of hiking, so
pack your hiking shoes and some bug spray, just in case. If you’re up for an adventure, rent a kayak
and come upriver. Secret Falls is just waiting to be discovered.
