gardens are along Route 51. 245-2660.

• Wailua Falls. This is one of the most gorgeous sights on the island. The falls are along Route 56 along the ocean. A couple different cliffs provide for quite the setting , as water pours down over the rocks and falls into the ocean. The area below is quite rocky, and makes for an amazing sight.
