Faarumai Waterfalls, Arue

4.5
#3 of 13 in Nature in Society Islands
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.

  • It was nice to see this area. Waterfalls not like Hawaii but they were nice. Kids enjoyed the water.  more »
  • Visit pays off in any case, because the Idyll is still gorgeous. The way has been created with stones so that it is accessible even if it rains. Again very nice!

  • 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.
  • 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...
  • Beautiful waterfall. Easy walk.
  • Took a scooter to ride the island and stopped here. A perfect place for a picnic. The signs say don't go swiming. But I highly doubt they will toss you into the clink for wading into the balmy water. However the place is rocky so you would need under water shoes to try it. Wonderful little place to stop!
  • 3 beautiful waterfalls after 2 and 10 mins walks.. The trail is currently closed due to a heavy rainfall in Jan 2017 that destroyed parts of the well prepared way. Flying bugs can be annoying, they even follow you in swarms. Enjoy star fruits right from the tree.
