Faarumai Waterfalls, Arue

4.5
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Arue
Witness the rush of water at Faarumai Waterfalls, a picturesque waterfall located in the dense rainforest. Easily accessible by car or bicycle, a parking lot sits just a short walk from the waterfall itself. The falls cut through the volcanic rock and cascade into a pool, surrounded by magnificent trees, shrubs, and wildlife. Enjoy a picnic on the rocks surrounding the falls, or hike out into the wilderness to gain another perspective on the scenic and photogenic spot. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes, as the rocks surrounding the pool are slippery when wet. Take the guesswork out of planning a Arue vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Not a bad little walk, not accessible if in wheelchair. It was part of a tour we took thru the cruiseline-that stopped at several spots on the island.  more »
  • The falls are stunning and well worth a stop if you have a rental car. Not even a five minute hike from the parking lot. There are massive swarms of mosquitoes (and we were wearing 30% DEET repellant!...  more »

  • Beautiful uncrowded waterfall in a wonderful rain forest. If you are in Papeete, it's a must do stop. There are some food options onsite (mostly coconut and other local fruits). Hike is very short (2 minutes after crossing the bridge) and it's super easy to find. Time to spend there: around 10 minutes. Only 4 stars out of 5 because the trail to the other waterfalls is damaged and hasn't been repaired for a while.
  • Go see it It’s a quick but impacting view of a beautiful waterfall.
  • The first waterfall is the biggest and most impressive. It is beautiful! There are several mosquitos around the waterfall so definitely wear bug spray - definitely worth the visit. The first waterfall is just up a short path and the whole area is beautiful. There is a cute bridge over a stream and there are many good places for photos.
  • Beautiful waterfall. Easy walk.
  • It was beautiful and very calm, because it was closed, but who care ;-) I have been there end of january after heavy storm and rain...
