Cascades Waterfall

Take a popular Cascades waterfall tour

One of the most popular tours is going to this tropical setting, about 5-minute drive from Worawia resort, in Mele Village. Or, a public bus from Port Vila, some 15-20 minutes drive.

Family day out

With a series of cascaded rockpools, some of which you can swim in, adjoined to each other by small waterfalls, leading all the way to the top where the main waterfall is, Cascades are the best place for a whole family’s day outing.

You can choose to stay 2 hours, half a day, or the whole day. When the heat is on, you will be glad to be cooling down in the fresh fall waters and enjoying the shade in amongst many trees that surround the fall.

Cascades waterfall in Mele village

Cascades waterfall is one of the best known attractions in Vanuatu, located in Mele village,
on the main Efate island, around 15 minutes drive from Port Vila town.

Visiting the fall

It’s well worth the visit and the gentle climb to the top, where the water splashes out over the rainforest trees, is a spectacular sight!

TIP: - go in the morning. On a nice day, the sun shines directly onto the main waterfall, making it perfect for taking photos. As you need to cross the shallow river several times to get to the main waterfall, it’s best to wear sandals or thongs and short pants.

However, if you choose to do bushwalking on the sides of Cascades waterfall to climb to the top, you might find walking shoes more convenient, as long as you don’t mind them getting wet while crossing the shallow river.

The hiking trek runs alongside of the waterfall and can be a bit steep in places. But there sre some steps in parts and even some hand built wooden rails to help along.
