Go to Potami waterfalls! You will love it. Do not take many things with you, so at the and of the walk you can leave clothes on a rock somewhere and get in the water (with shoes) and go climb the waterfalls (there are robes, its a bit slippery -shoes!!) its such a nice place!

Potami waterfalls is worth to visit. Make sure you have your swim costume and proper silicon swimming shoes (makes a hughe difference!) as you will get all wet and swim.... Maybe you want to have waterproof camera too! We went as a small group of friends and one of us had bad knee so she came to the half way... More

A very refreshing place not far from Potami beach. You need to walk 20 mn along 'Potami" river and then finally to get into the river in order to discover the first water falls. There are 2 other ones but which require trekking, so that you need waterproof shoes and to be escorted, in case you may need help to... More

Please be aware you would have to climb up and down via jungle like environment to get to Potami Waterfalls. Some of the wooden 'bridges' were cracked and it was a challenge to go over it. Waterfalls itself - well, maybe we expected more. Nice but nothing breathtaking.

Didn't get to the falls as there was no information to tell you to walk up the water at the top end of the woodland area. Steps up top cafe would not be allowed under english H&S.

Easy walk till the stairs. If you feel tired at that point better walk back. :) If you feel ok, and you can do some climbing, jumping and swimming; you can continue. It was an unordinary day with my wife and 7 year old daughter. Yes, we walked till the fall ;)

This walk is such a beautiful nature experience - we loved it! You don't have to be very fit to do it, just adventurous enough to be willing to climb slippery rocks and wade through chest high water. (You may see a few small fish swimming around.) Go as far as you feel comfortable and turn around whenever you like.... More

Great short hiking trail in an almost rainforesty environment. Don't bring your best shoes. Do not expect great big falls, but several small ones along the trail. A small lagoon at the end of the trail with ice cold water in which we didn't dare venture. Who knows, maybe there would have been even bigger waterfalls hidden behind the rocks.... More

Go fire a hike in this fairytale forest with trees that can tell history. Climb the stairs to the restaurant. If you really want to enjoy the waterfalls take your swimsuit and water-shoes to discover a hidden gem. The river flows over the rocks while the sun plays a light show.
