Great hike for active adults or families with young adults. Can be a tad challenging. Recommend mosquito repellent, towels (in case you want to swim), decent shoes for hiking (no flip flops).

Not too hard to find if you read other reviews. Basically when you get to the final fork in the unsealed road park (there are only really a couple of spots) and take the right fork up the 4wd track. Rule of thumb is when...More

After hiking up the mountain (about 1 hr 45 min) we were let down. The water coming down was more like a trickle and the base was knee deep. If I had known this, I would've saved myself the pain, agony, and almost a heat...More

From the sounds of other reviews, I think there are multiple ways to experience the falls. Perhaps there are 2? We didn't have the trouble with parking and private land (easy and safe nook for use to park near a power line), there was a...More

A group of five of us did this hike while on Moorea in August 2016. There are two sets of waterfalls near the Village of Afareaitu; we did the easier hike, to the falls near the high school. Entrance to the trail is not regulated,...More

It took us at least an hour one way without counting the breaks. The whole thing will take 3hrs if you don't plan to swim in the falls area. The path with the slippery slopes and streams was treacherous and definitely not recommended for those...More

Great to know and I would definitely recommend in Moorea. Where are you staying and do you have a rental car? Not sure if there is a legit guided tour since it's a nature trail up to the falls. There might be some local... More

Hi We just got back from Moorea. The waterfalls are a perfect activity for your family. You would need to rent a car which is easy to do even for a day. By the Ferry terminal or airport there is Avis and Europecar. The... More
