Overview

Lenuanatuaiu waterfall is one of the iconic waterfalls of Tanna Island, and has been a must see for travellers for many years. The Lenuanatuaiu waterfall is reached via the transverse road starting at the whitegrass plains and heading up to the crossroads at middlebush. Taking the left hand turn at the crossroads, passing through Fetukai, and the next right will lead you to the 'Tanna-Adventures' restaurant where you can arrange to be taken down to the waterfall.The 'Tanna-Adventures' restaurant is situated at the edge of an escarpment providing fantastic panoramic views over the eastern side of Tanna Island. Visitors to the waterfall start here and follow a prepared (but rough) track down through the surrounding tropical bush to the waterfall. The small river which feds the waterfall has been said to have stayed within an age old prehistoric period and has remained unspoiled since then. One of the food sources of the local village is the fresh water shrimps which can be found there.As with all waterfalls, it is spectacular after heavy rain in the wet season, while water volumes decrease over the dry season. However, its great viewing at anytime, being enclosed within its own little valley and developing its own moss and greenery around. For those who are adventurous the river can be followed down onto the Louniel Beach - another great attraction.

Not for faint hearted this is a good solid walk through bush and jungle like environment - having said that the swim mid way at the waterfall is amazing. You do then have to do the reverse trip back ..... up hill. Beautiful nature experience

To meet Chief Jack is alone well worth the visit to the waterfall. The offroad path has been altered by the cyclone but is still great fun in a 4WD. The descent towards the river is steep, but the chief and his son have made...More
