It's worth a visit. The entertainment you get from the young local lads jumping out a mango tree into the falls pool is something. Reminds me how simple things were when we were growing up. Be careful of the road leading to the falls. Rather...More

It is difficult to reach the waterfall. Signposts are misleading, and the road is suitable for the jeep but not for the small Nissan, but we managed. The waterfall itself is small but spectacular. A muddy path leads to him through the field. The water...More

Rochester Falls is an amazing waterfall. We have been 8years ago with a 2yr old and it was a proper hidden gem. It’s now more discovered but still very quiet compared to other Tourist places. This time there were 3 children (4,6,10yrs) and 6 adults,...More

A really nice place to sit around and watch the day go by. Safe to swim and no real dangers. Going through the week days is always quieter.
