This waterfall is one of the most photographed in Pohnpei. The twin cataracts tumble over a stepped basalt pillar that you can sit on underneath the flow. It is only a short walk from the main road, although we got there by boat after a trip to Nan Madol. Finding it from the main road could be a challenge, as the locals have removed the road sign.
The walk to the falls is easy, and is lined by flowers and other plantings maintained by the landowner. The last few feet to the falls is a little slippery, but sturdy handrails are available. The trail ends at a concrete landing from which you can enter the water. You can swim in the pool under the falls, which is only 5-6 feet deep at the most. There are freshwater eels and fish in the pond. Something nibbled gently at my back while I was swimming, but not hard enough to break the skin. The water is refreshed by the frequent rainstorms, and is refreshing at ~ 84-86 degrees F.
