Good day, a tad expensive $25.pp it was better last time we went. Be sure to wear reef shoes, waterfalls are beautiful and refreshing to sit under.

We were a bit skeptical about paying to visit a waterfall but this place is amazing. You can climb up through the falls and it is like you are in a movie, all beautiful grottos and lovely pools. Go on your own (hire a quad bike) since it is close to town and then you avoid the crowds.

We were so lucky to visit mele cascades on a quiet day with hardly any people there. The falls are beautiful and the water is so pristine and refreshing. Highly recommend a visit.

A bit of a hike to get there but so nice to be able to swim in a waterfall, especially with no one else around.

Well worth the walk, take a camera and your swimwear, definitely wear water shoes or old runners. Very pretty cascades.

We picked a non-crusie ship day to go , and only a handful of people there, Was amazing, walking through the cascades, swimming and stopping off at the Cafe for a drink and watching the fish in the pool. Its a must visit place when your on Efate.

Picked up in a bus by our guide Robert and taken through Mele Village and up to the start of the walk to the falls. It's a relatively easy climb up to the shelter where we left our bags and changed into reef shoes and walked on up to the waterfall. On the way we were given the opportunity to... More

Did this tour with Evergreen and had lunch included. The staff are fantastic and gave you a lot of information. Really refreshing in the cool waters after the hot walk we had. Check out the little cave inside just mind your head.

A nice walk leads up to beautiful waterfalls which are easy to climb and perfect for a refreshing bath and shower. A beautiful experience!
