“Waterfall lovers - here is a great one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Also part of our tour was this great and majestic waterfall - I love waterfalls and find the sound of the water falling to be very peaceful, so don't miss this one, it lives upto all your expectations.. the path is a bit risky if you are not all that steady on your feet.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

It's a pretty short hike off the road to the waterfall & definitely well worth it. The walk itself is pretty easy & also pretty. Just be sure to bring bug spray!

“Three beautiful waterfalls in unspoilt surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Known on local maps as les troix cascades. Pleasant walk through rainforest, only 5 minutes to one, around 20 to the other two (at a 4 year olds pace). Tall falls, absolutely gorgeous. Mozzies and sandflies are voracious - make sure you cover every inch with repellent as we thought we had and still came away with around 10 bites each. No bathrooms - use the facilities at the blowholes just a short way further along the road. Also, take drinking water, it gets pretty hot away from the sea breeze.

“Nice excursion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

A very easy excursion through some nice rainforest to see the waterfalls. I would highly recommend hiring a car for a few days to get to some of these wonderful sites off the beaten track.

“Worth the Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

There are three falls - one (the biggest I think) is a 5 minute walk from the car park and the other two about 10-15 minutes but all are worth seing - obviously they may not be as impressive in the dry season but as they are only a 5 minute drive from the main road it's a wothwhile detour

There are a lot of mosquitos so go prepared
