Maybe not as green as on the photos before the cyclone but still stunning. Entrance about 20 dollar pp is maybe a bit high but the island needs it! Worth going just go on your own take a bus and have lunch at the beach bar after :-) lovely morning out and about!

Although there is a bit of damage from the cyclone, this is still worth visiting and they've done a great job to get things back on track, plus they need your tourism dollars! It's a nice walk to the falls, you do need to be fairly good with walking and strength/stamina, there are a few parts of rushing water to... More

Very nice place to cool off. You don’t need to do a tour to the cascades – catch the local bus for about 500VT pp one way (approx. 15 mins) & the entrance fee is 2000VT pp. Would get very busy on cruise ship days so avoid these if you can.

This is a lovely waterfall, set in beautiful well maintained grounds with a restaurant and bar. It's a nice easy walk to the top of the cascades. Entry price is $30 per person.

My husband and two children, 7 and 10 visited in August 2014 while on a round the island day trip from Aquana Resort. This was one of the highlights. We climbed and climbed and found so much to see on the way. The boys swimmed and dived into the lower level pools and had a ball. The climb wouldn't be... More

This place is true paradise, we were in awe of its beauty, a true garden of eden. The walk to the top is a slight challenge but worth every step.

Mele cascades are just beautiful... Be careful though! Do not visit on a day when the cruise ships dock. The cascades are disgustingly over crowded. We stayed just down the road at a very nice Vila (Pacifique Vue). On the day we visited we were one of the very few. It was magical.

We went with a tour group here (evergreen? i think it was). Awesome day out, lunch included. Nice easy walk up to the top, gorgeous water fall. Cool little pools that my partner had fun sliding into. Definitely coming back and have recommended to people.

A picturesque place with ice blue water that refreshes you from the humidity, you walk through the falls with ropes to guide you and when you reach the falls its breathtaking.

Was new paying 2000 Vatu for entry but realising there is no or very little taxes the money has to come from somewhere. Although steep in places the paths had concrete steps and the stream crossings have rope hand rails so money well spent. Do not (as some we saw) stop at the first swim hole but continue up to...
