“Cool falls”

Ranked #2 of 7 things to do in Arue
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Many circle island tours include these falls on their itineraries. They are 22 km from Papeete along the north coastal road. Shortly before the turning to the falls, you pass the Blowhole of Arahoho (Le Trou de Souffleur), a slightly underwhelming attraction where water jets burst through rock depending on the severity of the waves. The three waterfalls at Faarumai are down a 1km long track in what is called the Valley of the Cascades.

The falls are off the main road, but a lot of tours go there. It is a short, but in places steep hike. French Polynesia is NOT handicapped friendly

My husband and I enjoyed the walk to the falls. Make sure you read the legend of the falls and go to visit all 3. I gave them an excellent rating because these are some of the first waterfalls that I have been able to swim under and enjoy the lagoon in privacy. It was great and took less than an hour.

It is worth the extra walk on a good path to see the twin falls!
The walk can be a little muddy after rain and do put on mosquito repellant as they were in abundance! Great car park nearby and a snack shack. Often tour buses go but the people on the buses just go to the first fall so therefore you can be the only ones at the twin falls. Do visit all 3 it will only take 20 minutes. Oh and is free!!
