Faarumai Waterfalls, Arue
(4.2/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Arue family vacation planner makes visiting Faarumai Waterfalls and other Arue attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We had read the reviews and seen pictures of this extraordinary site... Actually, the 1st waterfall is superb and the path that leads there, lined with lush vegetation, is really nice and easy access, because little steep and shaded. However, upon arrival at the waterfall, the vegetation seems to have been razed by any gear. Access to the other 2 waterfalls is closed and we, alas, could not take advantage of the beautiful vegetation that we saw on the photos of the authors who have commented on this site in 2015. What a pity. Whatever it is, if you love nature and if you have the time, do this little detour, it's worth even worth... And perhaps, in the meantime, access to the other 2 waterfalls will be - you it opened again?

  • Impressive result of nature! Feels tiny and the site is beautiful. Unfortunately, we could not access to the 1st waterfall, the site had been damaged last year, the path for the other cascades was closed. Beware of the mosquitos!
