“Light and fun exercise through luscious surrounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is a stunning venture down a relatively easy track. It takes a couple of hours to go in one direction. You are rewarded with lush mountain jungle on one side, and wind and wave shaped volcanic rock on the other. At the end of the trek is a double waterfall to enjoy. The return journey can be done by walk or a boat organised beforehand which will take you also to a couple of other waterfalls unreachable by foot.

“Costal kayak then walk back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

The costal kayak was a wonderful way to get a new perspective on the island. We got a workout, saw the island from a new vantage and got to see an amazing waterfall up a river. After visiting the first waterfall, only accessible by kayak, we did the costal walk back. The walk was an easy 3 miles with beautiful scenery and an awesome suspension bridge. The kayaking was my favorite part of the trip. I'd highly recommend kayaking up and walking back. The ocean kayak wasn't an advanced level and the guide will let you go at your own pace. If you're feeling seasick or tired you can always get in the boat the accompanies the trip. I wouldn't recommend the kayak for small children but 10 and up should be fine depending on the weather

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Simone, our guide was wonderful. Very pretty. We did the boat ride along the coast as well. Nice. We got to tough a sea snake--most venomous snake in the world!

“Amazing hike and swim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

This is a hike through the rainforest with a place that you can swim to a double waterfall. We also took a boat to a triple waterfall that is only accessible by boat. We'd recommend taking a boat one way and hiking back.
