I have hiked to paria falls several times in the years gone by. I have always enjoyed the hike plus the scenary at the beach and falls. Highly recommended for any nature lovers. A friend of mines did mention a while back on his hike in that area that the beach was littered with garbage. That was depressing news and... More

Paria waterfall Hike is a long (9 mile round trip) but rewarding hike. The track starts where the north coast road ends. A jeep trail with a few houses soons gives way to an old bench trail. There are about 5 or 6 valleys which need to be crossed. The total elevation gain and lost is about 1600ft. The walk... More

This waterfall is wonderful. The water is cold like ice but still nice. It is a long trek to that waterful but it is very scenic.

The hike to Paria falls will take you to a beautiful beach. The walk through the forest is a nature lover's dream. And the waterfall is stunning: a blue pool of water perfect for swimming.

Make sure you set off early. Have you been exercising before? Please do. This is not a hike for the timid, although kids love it for the challenge. Either do the longer walk through the hills from Brasso Seco, or the up and down hill climb along the water;s edge from Blanchisseuse river ( one of the few " cable... More

Went there 14yrs ago! From reading recent posts, it seems that it is still the magical hike we took then. A good 2h walk, solid, but with endless breathtaking spots, and a dream bath in the crystal clear water below the fall! As mentioned by others... BE CAREFUL... You will not come back from there the same person you were... More

If you really love nature and enjoy a challenging hike the paria waterfall is a must. Great for pictures. Enjoyable trek. You can stop at paria bay and take in the wonderful atmosphere. This is my most favorite hike and one of the most beautiful wonders of my home land.

This to me is quite a challenging hike - about 7 hours to hike in and back out, not including bath time at the falls. You will see some interesting flora, some fauna you might see are Macaws, Parrots, Butterflies and some insects. Just before the falls you will meet up with some beaches and small rivers which are some... More
