It's hot, humid & a decent walk, but once.you get into the waterfalls for a swim it feels great! The price is a bit expensive, but you're on holidays and the waterfalls are beautiful so don't miss out!

The cascades are beautiful and a nice spot for a swim, although there is a fair walk from the carpark to the waterfalls with a number of steps so only accessible by foot. Entry fee is about $25au from memory. We went in September 2014 and again in May 2015 following the cyclone and both times it was very nice.... More

Not to wowed by the cascades, water level was low due to the drought, one of the tallest waterfalls on the Island but for the $$ charged (2000VT pp) didn't amount to good value when comparing it to free attractions from other parts of the world such as NZ or Aussie.

A beautiful place, great place to cool down! The cascade falls were peaceful and so refreshing! A must to visit if you are in Port Vila. We ended up going around the whole island and this was our last stop, it was so worth going too!!!!!

Great visit and easy walk. Essential on a hot day - and you must go swimming in the pools. The falls and gardens are great

We visited the Cascades a week ago. We were told that an afternoon visit is preferable as the falls were crowded in the mornings. There were quite a few people there but plenty of room for a lovely swim under the falls and in the lower pools. As mentioned by another reviewer, reef shoes are an absolute must!

A lovely day trip from Port Vila. Rock pools and a full kiosk and bar then a 20 minute walk to the falls. Be aware that you will get wet so wear reef shoes or thongs. The actual climb up the waterfall is very slippery so not for the faint hearted.

The Cascades are nice, it's a relatively easy walk up to the main falls and there is a spot for a quick dip and some nice photos.

Was worried about reported low water levels, but headed over to the Cascades after lunch for a truly fantastic afternoon with the family. 13 year old desperately wanted to swim under a waterfall and what a one to do it under. Its so breathtakingly tall and the small pool at the bottom takes the fear of currents out of the... More

It's simple.......you MUST make time to go here, it's just totally magical. We stayed all day and our tour didn't lock us into a short stay. One tip we found reef walking shoes very helpful as the rocks can be very slippery.
