Went to Vanuatu this December 2016, and the original mele cascade waterfalls sadly has dried up. There are now the new waterfalls for tourists which are a further drive but are still beautiful

Have been here a few times with a cruise ship. Cheaper to book privately rather than booking through cruise line as a tour. Anyway, a bit of walking, some of this includes walking up gradual inclines. You might work up a bit of a sweat,...More

We visited the falls while on a P&O cruise. I get the feeling that the price to enter the falls goes up when a cruise ship comes in, $25 adults and $15Aus children. Make sure you have cash as no credit card to pay at...More

Visited this waterfall as a cruise tour. Spectacular and great for a swim. Definitely wear runners or reef shoes as its quite a climb and you have to negotiate slippery rocks & paddle through streams. There are ropes to help you up the steeper parts....More

Must see these waterfalls when in vanuatu! Very family friendly, safe and fun for all! Would recommend a tour, tour guides know the area very well as they are hired from the village bellow the falls.
