One can only imagine how beautiful it looks if there it had rained recently. It is an easy stop outside of town on your way to other sights more »
Absolutely fantastic hike to the waterfall. Was lucky enough to be here in early spring when the water was flowing with tremendous force. A truly awe inspiring sight! Met a few hikers along the way (Emily and Amanda) who were there on their honeymoon. What a beautiful couple. We ended up sharing a few celebratory drinks near the top of the waterfall which soon turned into a game of truth or dare that none of us will ever forget. Camped there under the stars for the evening as well. Literally the best trip I have ever been on. Not only is the island gorgeous, but the locals, as well as the other folks there on holiday made this the best holiday ever! 10/10
Beautiful landscape! About 1 hour walk in rough muddy path, especially when it rains, but it worths the effort.
