This is a must to do if your cruise ship goes to Vanuatu. Can be a little pricey but it's worth it! The water and the waterfall are beautiful. I would love to do this again.

We were taken here on a round island trip and did not really know what to expect. We were blown away by the beauty and the experience. All but one of our party was able to climb right up to the top pool and swim under the main fall which was an awesome experience. My 10 year old declared it... More

Mele Cascades are absolutely breathtaking, not to be missed while in Port Vila. We were off a cruise ship so had limited time but part of our itinerary had to include these water falls. We were lucky to find a driver who took us around for the whole day and waited wherever we wanted to go. He charged us $60... More

Mele Cascades are beautiful. The walk to the big waterfall is beautiful and well worth it. Standing under the waterfall is surreal. Make sure you find the hidden cave under the waterfall ;-) Take comfortable footwear to walk in. Your feet will get wet but the path is NOT at all slippy.

Amazing fresh waterfall with lime stone climb. Must see for a swim! Take water with you and towels. Have a swim in pond with fishes and get a cold beer on your return. Get under the big waterfall and small ponds. Don't be afraid to climb limestone it's not slippery

It is expensive to get in BUT really well worth it. You have to walk all the way to the top and don't forget the Hideaway lookout. Swimming in the pool and under the waterfalls. Take reef shoes because your shoes will get wet. Spend a few hours there - don't rush it.
