I found these waterfalls very interesting for the way they fall from pool to pool in a very pretty formation. Some of the flowers were spectacular too. It is also interesting that water can be pretty cold even in November in the tropics. I guess mountain water is just cool. I couldn't get in past my waist for the cold!... More

I got nothing else to say than other fellow reviewers. Simply amazing and nature doesn't get as natural than this.

Wow. This place was simply stunning. There is a bit of walking involved at this attraction but if you go all the way to the end and see the two waterfalls I guarantee it will take your breath away. The grounds are so naturally beautiful I found myself wanting to photograph every part of it. Some highlights (I wont spoil... More

We caught the bus out from the opposite side of Vila for 400VT each and headed to secret garden first before a gentle walk up the road to the falls. Times nicely as ship was in town so many coming out as we were going in 2000VT or $25AU entry was modest. The walk up was tough on lungs and... More

Great to incorporate into a day trip of sights around Port Vila. Although you have to walk uphill a way to get there, it's well worth it. Our guide from Evergreen tours was great. Made sure we made it safely over any "tricky bits" and took some great photos for us. Lovely way to spend a bit of time and... More

Had a great day travelling Etafe then visiting the Mele Cascades on a tour! The tour guide that took us up to the falls was very knowledgable about all the plants found along the walk and taught us a lot about their local uses. Having a swim in the falls was a perfect way to top it off!

Gorgeous location and great for a swim on a warm day! Good value for such a pretty place. It cost around $30 including transfers from The Grand Hotel

my wonderful surprise. I recommend the Cascades as afternoon tour. First, go to market in town, grab some fruits and water. Then catch a bus (200 vatus or more when cruise ship is there). Go for a short ride through Mélé village. Entry is 2000 vatus for visitors. Note that the cascades close at 4.30 pm. Don't forget your bikini... More
