Trip Planner: South Pacific / French Polynesia / Society Islands / Tahiti / Arue / Faarumai Waterfalls
Witness the rush of water at Faarumai Waterfalls, a picturesque waterfall located in the dense rainforest. Easily accessible by car or bicycle, a parking lot sits just a short walk from the waterfall itself. The falls cut through the volcanic rock and cascade into a pool, surrounded by magnificent trees, shrubs, and wildlife. Enjoy a picnic on the rocks surrounding the falls, or hike out into the wilderness to gain another perspective on the scenic and photogenic spot. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes, as the rocks surrounding the pool are slippery when wet. Take the guesswork out of planning a Arue vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

You will discover a magnificent waterfall where it looks like the droplets are crystal. With the light that reflects it's beautiful. The legend of the 3 waterfalls is explained on a panel. Beware, the site is overrun with small midges very sticky! But the waterfall and nature around are worth a look. Too bad we could only see one... The path to the other two was closed due to the risk of falling stones.
I was surprised how close the waterfall was to the carpark was expecting more of a walk. Beautiful and well worth a visit. more »
Beautiful uncrowded waterfall in a wonderful rain forest. If you are in Papeete, it's a must do stop. There are some food options onsite (mostly coconut and other local fruits). Hike is very short (2 minutes after crossing the bridge) and it's super easy to find. Time to spend there: around 10 minutes. Only 4 stars out of 5 because the trail to the other waterfalls is damaged and hasn't been repaired for a while.
Go see it It’s a quick but impacting view of a beautiful waterfall.
