As you head north away from Lihue on Highway 50, look for a sharp turn on to Ma'alo Road (583).  Drive along the single-lane road past several miles of cane fields to reach magical Wailua Falls, whose water source is the ever-flowing Wailua River.  Does the postcard scenery look familiar to you? Stunning Wailua Falls was shown in the opening sequence of the popular weekly television series Fantasy Island.  Hawaiian legend tells of brave members of the royalty who dived 80 feet into the natural pool below to prove their strength and fearlessness.
