Nothing extraordinary when one has visited many other nicer waterfalls .. but nice to have a cool bath after a walk. We walked for about 75min from Port Barton beach. Donation box and nice young people at registration center, 15min walk away from the fall.

Came from the beach (which was empty completely empty and very beautiful), and started to walk towards the falls from there. An exciting walk, between sky-high palm trees and small wooden houses with locals wandering around. Took about an hour and the waterfall was a...More
