Beautiful, just the best spot. Crystalline waters, my type of spot. Access was a little tricky traveling with a 5 years old son, but we found a better place just walking a bit more than the rest of the people. Year safer in covid times.

So beautiful area to hike and enjoy the nature in this part of Portugal. The waterfall is so amazing with stunning views from the top. Take the side hike to reach the beautiful pools upwards and enjoy swimming. So lovely and so recommended

This waterfall is very easy to reach on the main road out of Geres on the way to the Spanish border point at Portela. There are trails around the area itself for those who like a leg stretch after a long drive or to explore more fully. The air is pure and invigorating, like many locations close to moving mountain waters.

A little disapointed I have to say, maybe because its winter and it was starting to rain and we tried to reach it by the road. I was aspecting a more easy access or better indications to the place ... basically what i saw was people parking quickly on the side road... running, taking pictures and coming back to the cars... Its a nice waterfall but i don't recommend you to go see it if you're just in a short trip/weekend

This is located in the fantastic place. If you are driving from Geres or Campo do geres I would recommend to travel from Campo do Geres because you will have a opportunity to visit Rio Homem too. Cascata da Portela do Homem is really beautiful with crystal clear water which is amazingly beautiful, the waterfall and small rocky pond. I started my journey from Geres. There is no public transportation to go to waterfall unless you get hotel coaches. Many people make journey on foot or by bicycle. I get public bus from Braga to Geres and after that I made the journey in bicycle. From Geres to Campo do Geres, once you reach campo do Geres, Rio Homem is nearby than follow rough road that will lead you to Cascata da Portala do Homem. You can enjoy rocky mountain, dry mountain, curvy road leading to mountain, natural beauty, forest on the way from Geres to Campo do Geres.
