Great view

Loved the amazing view of the crater and the waterfall, but didn't have the energy on a hot day to get down amongst it.

We stopped here twice! First time there was cloud in the valley, which gave the falls an ethereal feel. Second time it was clear and we could see the full extent of the waterfall, quite impressive.

The waterfall is pretty magnificent, but you can only see it from an overgrown pot-hole filled carpark across the valley. Is worth a 10 minute photo stop if you are already making your way across the island, but I wouldnt recommend making a special trip.

nice to look at only need to stop by for a few minutes as falls are very fair in the distance and dont photograph too well. can be very hazy out there so ask locals/ driver best time for a nice clear view. can be quite brown during heavy rains still worth a look

Lots of fish and sea life to view in a natural environment. It is easily accessed being close to the Marina. Snorkel hire is readily available.

I'm only giving this a 3 because I only viewed by the lookout. So: the falls are amazing from the view but it would be better if I could get closer. I'm not aware of any trails down to the bottom.

We stoped by the road to see the falls and take pictures.The falls are so far away that it looks like a thread in photos.İf you stop,stop only for 5 minutes.İt is enough.
