Create an itinerary including Faarumai Waterfalls
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.

  • We stopped as part of a tour with unique Tahiti. Faatimai Waterfalls was absolutely astonishing. It was just like all those tropical island calendars with their picturesque waterfall photos. Too bad.....  more

  • As others have mentioned, the trail to the 2nd and 3rd falls is closed (July 2022), but it's still worth the visit. The falls are amazing. Definitely apply bug spray before heading up the trail...

  • The Faarumai waterfall is one of three waterfalls in the area, but they were doing construction on the other two waterfalls in 2018 when we came last and again in 2022, so we haven't visited the other two waterfalls, just this Faarumai one. The place is well-kept and maintained to look great, sometimes there's local vendors who sell fruit there. There are beautiful spots in the forest and some bamboo too. A cute bridge and stream as well.
  • If you are on Tahiti, you must see this! Beautiful short hike to the waterfall... super easy to find and the walk to the waterfall is out of a movie gorgeous! (Do bring insect repellent, once you get close to the falls, the bugs multiply by 1,000!) Do not miss this "beauty in nature" experience, plus very easy to access. Google maps takes you right to it!
  • Simply breathtaking, but the history behind it all makes it even cooler. Our trip guide Fabrice was great in elaborating it all to us. Definitely a stop anyone should check out while in Tahiti!
  • A gorgeous hike to three huge waterfalls. Plenty of parking and an easy well maintained trail.
  • The first waterfall is gorgeous although there are a lot of mosquitoes. You are not supposed to swim in the pool. The second and third waterfall are still closed for construction and nobody seems to know when (if?) they will be open again.
