  • Parking and price: more or less directly in front of the waterfall, there is free parking; short and very well constructed footpath (5 minutes). Admission $2 per person. Away to the waterfall: you must pass through before a small stream - barefoot or sandals but easily traversable. Here, small children into the water can also without problems. Waterfall: It can swim be :) Conclusion: We have taken "just" the waterfall; If one has time only an hour, you can plan the visit thus very well. It's worth.
