Beautiful falls. Not really a hike, but an overlook. Very popular.

Pretty falls, but not really a hike- more of a very populated overlook. None the less, the falls were beautiful.

The falls are nice, if the water is clear, but, this is not a hike. It is a walk from the parking lot. Good for people who don't hike but want to see waterfalls.

Beautiful falls ! You just need to park the car and enjoy them ! You should go around 9am because the sun rises just at the good spot to see rainbows !

Gorgeous, pungent white ginger lines the trail up to the top of the falls. Super easy to navigate. Make sure to bring reef shoes, and a bathing suit so you can wade in the pools at the top of the falls. I was bummed that I wasn't prepared.
