Overpriced but nice falls. Peacocks roaming around is cool. Wanted a fish made from reed. Found out staff didn't work weekends.

Probably the best part of our time on Oahu was visiting the waterfall. There is a lifeguard and mandatory life vests, which feels controlled, BUT it doesn't really distract. The falls still feel GREAT.

Beautiful Valley and leisurely walk up to the falls. Fauna and Historical information along the way and many photo opportunities. We almost missed this place but I'm glad we didn't.
