When you arrive you will be told by the person on the gate that it will take 45 mins to get to the waterfall, don't listen to them it will take you a good hour especially if you are stopping to take pictures, which you will. Don't go in flip flops, shoes and trousers are a must. Beautiful scenery and... More

There are some interesting rock formations. There are some nice wildflowers. But these things can be found all over this area in less crowded places. The walk/scramble was ok for me but my wife was not so happy with it. After rain it could be quite interesting. At the end of it, a waterfall that cannot rank in the world's... More

The weather was terrible but the area looked lovely, although the path isn't clearly marked out all the way and we got lost for about an hour.

A nice, relatively easy hike to a 60m natural waterfall through beautiful forests and rocky landscapes with breathtaking views over the bay of Porto Vecchio. About 1h30min return walking at a normal pace if you don't spend too much time taking photos... Parking with a small charge, snack with great service

The walk us indicated as 45 minutes, 2.5 km and 'facile' which means easy (one way). We saw many people without walking shoes of any kind and not enough water. There's nothing to drink along the way anywhere. So on a relatively sunny day, 27 degrees, makes sure to bring plenty and allow at least 2x as much time (3... More

Takes a 45 minute trek to get to the falls. Great trail, lots of scenery and forests. The climb to and from the falls (the last 5 minutes) are moderate to difficult, but worth the effort.

The hike to this beautiful waterfall is really nice and gives you plenty of good photo opportunities. All worth it!

60m cascade, if you have seen some oh them in the alps, you will not be impressed. The walk to go there is nice (+/- 90 mn to go & return). Be careful, there is a pay parking just a the beginning, but if you are ok for a less than 5mn walk continue the road and park the car... More
