‘Ōpaeka’a Falls and Lush Vegetation near Wailuā on Kaua’i, Hawaii

After your eyes have soaked in all of the beauty of the ‘Ōpaeka’a Falls, you’ll begin to notice it is surrounded by lush, green vegetation. That is because nearby is one of the wettest places on earth with an annual rainfall of over 30 feet! That assures that the water cascades over this cliff all year. In Hawaiian, the name means “rolling shrimp” because years ago they were plentiful and always tumbled over this falls.
