The Wailua River became the center of activity for early Hawaiians and is known as one of Hawaii's two most sacred places.

At night, it is said that one can still hear ancient drums thunder in concert with the nearby surf The trail leading to our sacred waterfall is a beautiful "greenhouse" where flowers, brooks, and ferns abound. Swim by the waterfall.

The early Polynesian culture is represented here, steeped in a colorful past, rich with rock-wall terracing, legends, and lore.

The setting for this jaunt is tranquil and tropical, the pace is unhurried. We delight in sharing the peaceful, pastoral existence of ancient Hawaii with you.

Bird watch for a night heron or coot.

Swim in the pools or stream leading from the falls (we don't recommend swimming under the waterfall due to falling rocks).

Come to share the life and natural history of this mystical land and enjoy its great quiet with us!
