This is extremely beautiful- nature at its best!

A picturesque place with ice blue water that refreshes you from the humidity, you walk through the falls with ropes to guide you and when you reach the falls its breathtaking.

Was new paying 2000 Vatu for entry but realising there is no or very little taxes the money has to come from somewhere. Although steep in places the paths had concrete steps and the stream crossings have rope hand rails so money well spent. Do not (as some we saw) stop at the first swim hole but continue up to...

the price is creeping up each visit but I still love it. Take your swimmers and go when the rain starts. I'm not a risk taker or particularly fit and it's no challenge at all

Have been a number of times to the cascades and always enjoy the beauty and a nice cold swim in the humid weather is also welcome. Have previously also had a meal there which was also reasonable for the price (BBQ)

Have been many times, and always made sure I took visitors to town there - gorgeous! Tip - it can get quite cool at the top as the sun doesn't penetrate very well, so if you want to swim, go early afternoon on a hot day. Also, don't wear sneakers - the walk is easy enough not to need them,... More

This place is a lot of fun. The walk up to the cascades takes about 20 minutes through the tropical forest - take your time and enjoy the tropical plants and flowers along the way. As you get closer to the cascades the path becomes more rugged, until you're clambering up the rocks (not slippery) as the warm water flows... More

probably the only place in Efate worth going to. Natural and untouched, breathtaking experience. Great for all ages. Bring reef shoes.

I felt the price was a little steep for a short walk to some waterfalls. They were certainly beautiful and ok to swim in but the day I went there were a lot of cruise ship passengers there and it was overly crowded and the water quite murky looking at the top. Do need to have a good level of... More
