We did a guided tour with one of the taxi drivers Sam Tel 5966662 who took us to the top of the falls, looked after our bages and took some pohot's of us swimming in the cascades. The few Vatu we paid for entry was well worth the stunning walk through the gardens and swimming in the waterfalls and pools.... More

We drove ourselves to the falls and were glad we took the time to go there. On first sight is looked a bit 'touristy' but when we climbed to the top it was beautiful. You can swim wherever you want and jumping in is welcome. Great place, great fun for all.

It was a lovely walk but I felt a bit over priced for what it is- however the falls are great with lots of smaller ones and tehy cover a large area

Loved Mele Cascades. Be prepared to get wet as you climb up/through the waterfall. Make sure you don't go when a cruise ship is in as it's too busy then.

Pretty high priced for what it especially by local prices. If going allow a good 2 hours and take your swim gear.

Wonderful day spent with our family of four. Natural beauty, easy walk to the top. No matter how cold, make sure you take a dip. You really do need reef shoes (can be purchased very reasonably from cheap Asian shops in town.) This is a must do when visiting Vanuatu.

If you have not seen this majestic falls hidden in Efate, make it part of the plan to visit. The pools, foot paths with natural vegetation just makes it refreshing on a hot sunny day.

The cascades are breathtaking!! It's a light up hill hike but you can climb in the falls and slide down. Grab a papaya, grab a bus and go spend a day here!!!

Ventured to Mele Cascades as part of a tour (which turned out just to be my partner and myself) and was blown away by the beauty. Does not require a high degree of fitness, but make sure you are able to do a little climbing if you want to get to the base of the waterfall proper. Lovely and surprisingly... More
