Easy access to these cascades and pools. After the rain the path down can be a bit muddy and slippery, but it is worth making the effort. The water is clear and makes a refreshing way to get the sand out of your hair.

You can also enjoy some "natural jacuzzies" that are beside the slide. And some natural pools all around the place. Just be careful because some places are slippery... More

When we last visited Ubatuba, it had been raining non stop for days, so the waterfall was extremely powerful and way too dangerous to swim in (or even venture close to the edge). However, we walked down the tracks along the side in the bush and got some beautiful photos. The last pool at the bottom is particularly beautiful, it... More

Great- careful of the slippery rocks though! Go down to all levels, there's a great rope-swing in the bottom pool.
