Wailua River, Wailua, Kauai, Hawaii
You’ll have to travel by kayak, canoe, and/or by hiking trail to get to beautiful Uluwehi Falls, commonly referred to as Secret Falls. Those who’ve made the trip say that it’s definitely worth the effort of paddling upriver, hiking, and fording streams to arrive at the 100-foot majestic falls. The pool below is perfect for taking a dip and resting your aching muscles (after all that paddling and walking!), or you can simply sit down on a rock and soak in the sights and sounds of this primordial tropical paradise. Make sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, bug spray, snacks, and good waterproof hiking footwear.
