Overview
More
Mele Cascades Waterfalls is one of Efate's most popular natural attractions. Only 20 minutes drive out of town, a visit can be completed in just over two hours. There are bathroom facilities available , sitting area, a small cafe and bar on site for purchase of food and drinks. The area is local owned and run by locals. Revenue generated help pay wages for local employees, maintenance and upkeep of the area,community development for surrounding villages and sponsorship of social activities, most especially soccer development programs for youth. Note: Efate is currently experiencing severe El Nino and the once picturesque attraction has very low water levels. This is also causing drastic water supply shortage to villages and its people. To close the business would mean loss of income for many.

Arrived a bit late in the afternoon and had the whole place to ourselves. Small entry fee was worthwhile. Make sure you swim through the waterfall on the far left into a little cave - even our 8 year old son managed this without difficulty

Sadly we saw this after heavy rain so it was not as pretty as described. It was part of a tour and really I would not pay to specifically see it. Was nice but really just a waterfall.

This was a good hike up to the waterfalls. Great spot, handrails etc provides to help climb and well worth it when at the top. Waterfall was great but grounds and facilities need more maintenance.

Amazing! Photos just don’t do it justice of how beautiful it is! Bit of a walk up with our little ones because they aren’t used to the humidity but once we were up the top we all couldn’t get over the beauty of it!

This is an amazing place to walk through and experience. The falls are fabulous and the water so clear. The pools are so inviting you just want to jump into each one you see. Best to wear reef shoes, as you are likely to be...More

The walk up the valley was well worth it and the plunge into the pool at the top followed by other pools down stream was terrific. Compared to other places it was quite expensive, hope th money goes to the locals?
