Hoopii Falls, Kauai, Hawaii-USA
Even though the falls are actually two falls, only one of them was officially named Hoopii Falls. Apparently, local and government maps disagree over which waterfall got the official name. Each of these falls are 15 to 20 feet tall and change dramatically depending on how much it rains. The falls are popular with locals and are a great area for swimming, although it can be dangerous after heavy rains.
