We took a guide with us who was funny and made the journey much more pleasant. Silly me thought it was a 1.5 mile walk, but it was a 1.5 hour walk. Make sure to bring good shoes as the terrain changes from beach to trail to rock. Plus bring lots of water as the hike can be strenuous when... More

This is a lovely walk where you will see natural beauty and village life. The cyclobne had taken the suspension bridge but our river crossing was assisted by helpful local children.You need to be reasonably fit as the path is rough and there is a bit of clambering, rewarded by a swim at the end! 8km round trip.

Take the walk to the falls and back by foot, see what you see on your way and the things you will missed out, is what you will see on your way back. the tracks are alright and at some places you might need to be little bit more careful while walking the tracks, the tracks are well signed to...

The walk is 5km long and takes you to a beautiful waterfall where it is possible to swim. Along the way there are many beautiful plants and the vistas are stunning. The path is well maintained. We had to ford a river on the way, as the recent cyclone had demolished the bridge. Fording was a little challenging, but doable... More

Incredible hike- be sure to wear a swim suit and swim to the waterfall at the end of the hike! Guide not necessary- easy trail once you find it! Absolutely stunning- not to miss!

Take the walk, come back by boat. Waterfalls are spectacular. Think of what Hawaii was 100+ years ago. Still natural and unspoiled. See photos in my review of TIR.

This is truly a hike worth taking. The amount of plants, birds and ocean views is truly wonderful. End of the trail is an amazing waterfall.

Great walk with prize waterfall and refreshing swim at end. Walk out boat back. Strange start with registration at devastated camp on a card table. Gave us a mandatory guide who was terrific. Whole thing seems shady but trust the people . All good folks.

Easily one of the best costal walks I've done. Beautiful scenery. Worth taking a guide for the knowledgeable insights. The waterfall at the end is a nice swim and you can slide down it. Though watch the hole at the beginning.
