A must visit spot in Vanuatu. The creek, cascades, waterfall and lookout are spectacular. Unfortunately the surrounding infrastructure is in desperate need of repairs. At 2000 vatu per person (about $25AUD) a bit disappointing to see the people responsible for the attraction sleeping the day away and no sign of repairs/improvements being done. This could easily be the premier tourist... More

Excellent way to connect with the land and water. Absolutely recommend visiting this site and doing a guided tour. Highly refreshing and rejuvenating.

pretty ordinary for the price lacking hand rails & safety measurements when traversing through streams over slippery stones under the water suggest to inform travelers well beforehand to make preperations to tackle these dangers

Beautiful spot but could have had more attention to visitor safety at upper fall. The rope guides could be better.

Fantastic tropical waterfalls set in great location. The cooling waters provide respite from the heat and also soothe aches and pains if you have any.

The walk to the top of the falls was lovely. There was a good path cleared with a couple of easy creek crossings. The falls at the top had good rope holds and there had been foot holds carved into the rocks. Go to the top, it's worth the extra 2 minutes walk and the rock pools were a bit... More

The Cascade Falls are fantastic make sure you take a slight detour off the track to the top of the falls and go to the lookout that looks over Port Vila. The path to the falls can be a little steep but would suit most people. The falls are beautiful, the water amazing and a swim or plunge in is... More

Beautiful falls as well as the well kept grounds, credit to the Mele people. The swimming hole was fantastic with freshing fresh water flowing through it. The bar area was also great as was the restaurant area.
