Just got back from this beautiful place via the Rhapsody of the Seas. Its a must to visit. Just make sure you have a waterproof camera, the scenery is stunning. The entry fee is fair for what you get. It looks tricky but its not difficult at all, make sure you have reef shoes / or equivalent. I had an... More

These waterfalls are stunning. The water is clear and cool and great for swimming in the waterholes below the main waterfall. Entrance fee is AUD25 per person. There are toilets and changing facilities and a Natural swimming pool, as well as cafe near the entrance. The facilities are excellent. The walk up to the falls is about 10-15 minutes, and... More

Be prepared for a 20 min walk with your reef shoes, towel, togs and of course your camera. Great views from the base to the waterfall. Lots of spots to swim once at the top but be prepared for strong currents from the waterfall (lots of rain the night before). If lucky you will see some fresh water lobster. The... More

Be ready to get wet if you want to come close to the waterfall! It definitely worth it!! Take some special shoes to walk in the water if you can.

Visiting Mele Cascades was a wonderful way to spend Easter Sunday afternoon. Catch a bus from town(400 VT pp) bring your togs, camera, towel and reef shoes and be prepared for the most scenic waterfall experience in the South Pacific. The trip takes about 20 minutes from the base to the top passing through shady paths and crossings. When you... More

I had been to Vanuatu several times but had never visited the cascades before. So glad I did this time. Getting there is easy and cheap. You can go practically anywhere in Vila by bus for 150 vatu including Mele Cascades. When you are dropped off at the cascades you may think you are in the wrong place as there... More

Not your regular waterfall. The rocks and the pools make for a wonderful experience. Place is beautiful and well maintained (except for a couple of spots where the ropes on the rocks were a bit worn). Wear water shoes and be prepared to be saturated - and how super is that on a warm sunny day. Well worth the visit.
