The Water Gardens of Vaipahi, Taravao
(4.8/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Take a pleasant stroll through The Water Gardens of Vaipahi, an immaculate public park. Spot, sniff, and photograph over 75 different species of plants that surround the water features of this well-maintained garden, which stretches just over a hectare (2.5 acres). Have a picnic at the foot of the waterfall, head to the souvenir shop to pick up a memento, and read the informational sheet to learn about the history of the park, built on the site of a "marae" (sacred temple). While you can tour the attraction in a relatively short amount to time, several hiking routes starting from here let you extend your visit. Onsite restrooms and a shelter for shade make this a convenient and comfortable place. Put The Water Gardens of Vaipahi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Taravao vacation route planner.

  • lovely gardens with numerous paths to explore. small open air stall selling dired fruit , ater and fruit juices. has spotless amenities as a bonus 
  • We have already several times the garden visit but never had the time to do one of the 3 walks offered on the site. We decided to do the one leading to the panorama and we have not been disappointed. The trail is very well tag and maintained, how refreshing and arrived at the panorama the midst a beautiful point of view s offers to you. Peak picnic tables are located. This course go back to a period d 40/45 minutes and is easy even if it climbs slightly (walking shoes are to be expected as even) in conclusion we stayed a little on our hunger on this route and will stay the course of 02:15 next time

  • C is a haven of greenery and water very close to the road from the sea. We can't imagine it passing its way on the West Road. Several pools and caves are hidden in lush vegetation. Step has not to miss on the way gauguin Museum or the Botanical Garden.
