We visited this waterfall as a stop over on a cruise, and it was such a beautiful relaxing place. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Took a bus from Port Vila (200VT pp about $3 AUD) to the Cascades. Entry fee from memory around $20 AUD each. A bit more dear than other attractions but worth it. You follow the path up to the waterfall. Quite easy to follow. It...More

I was prepared to be disappointed but I wasn't. Yes it's pretty expensive to get in but I don't mind supporting the local community. We went after lots of rain so it was gushing water everywhere. Fair bit of a walk to get to the...More

We booked through Evergreen tours for a half day tour which included the cascades. It was gorgeous! Had a swim in the rock pool at the base of the waterfall. So refreshing. Be careful climbing up. Hold on to the ropes for support and take...More

I was expecting something different here. It was more expensive than I expected and it was good for a swim but the waterfall wasn't spectacular and the pools were good for a dip. We spent about an hour or two here and it is worth...More

It is a 20 minute walk one way, with one set of stairs that you have to go up and two creek crossings. Moderate level of fitness is required

Has anyone been to Mele cascades in the last week or so ? Are the falls flowing, or is it just pools of water to swim in ?

We were there in December. No flowing water at all. Only pools to swim on near the bottom of the hike. Still a nice walk though.
Hi there! We are heading to Vanuatu this weekend, would it be possible to do the cascades with a 1.5 year old and 2.5 year old? I can put youngest on carrier and older is a great walker/explorer

It is a fair hot walk,the day we went a man carried his child, but he was very exhausted, I don't think the little ones would like it.
