It was well worth our time to venture to the Mele Cascades waterfall. The natural, jungle setting gave us a new appreciation of Vanuatu. We walked as a group of 20: adults & children aged 4 - 70y and we all made it to the top. Easy at first, then steeper and more challenging at the top when you walk... More

This is a lovely walk through to some waterfalls. It's not to hard and if you take your time any one can do it! and you can refresh yourself with a dip. There is a minimum fee which goes to Mele Village (the local village).

I did it in thongs and was fine, but more cautious people might like to wear strap-on sandals like reef shoes. Wear your swimmers and swim in the... More

Nice Area - close to Vila - you have to pay VN2000 each to enter so plan to spend a reasonable time there. Water falls are worth climbing up to experience

We are regular visitors of Vanuatu having many local friends and family there and we always make sure we visit the Cascade Waterfalls! With a slight trek to the top waterfalls, it can be a little hot for some but definitely beautiful and refreshing at the top. Lots of waterfalls and natural pools along the way for people to swim...

Stunning - remember to take some reef shoes because if you want to get to the top of the Cascades you'll get very wet!

Such a lovely spot, recovering after the cyclone. Well worth the trip. There is a lovely walk to the falls and the gardens and setting is picturesque. The water is so refreshing and felt like it was good for your soul!

The location was readily accessible and fall were spectacular. An unspoiled beauty not excessively commercialised.
