We rented a scooter and drove ourselves there, beautiful scenery and perfect water temperatures for a swim. However entry fee is $25 per person which is a bit steep for what is is

Such a beautiful location. We were lucky enough to visit and experience the cascades with just my husband and myself! The walk up was fun and the water so refreshing. Would highly recommend.

We were debating about going but it was okay other than the walk in the heat to the cascades and after a while it was we thought in the heat we could have missed, maybe on a cooler day it would be better.

Headed to Cascade Waterfalls (2500VT entry fee) we had the whole place to ourselves and what a magical place it is. We spent about 2hrs here just floating in the cool pools and admiring the falls. A must do!

The waterfalls are located about 30 mins drive from Port Vila, and offer a great day out. The entrance price is a bit steep, but there are all the facilities you could want such as food, drink and toilets etc. Leaving the entrance complex behind...More

What a great beautiful location. Excellent swimming, short walk to waterfalls, safety ropes for slippery locations. If you visiting Port Vila for a short time, we recommend this as a must see.
