  • My husband and I are not in shape and really enjoyed taking our time on this hike. We made it up to the wooden stairs that come up shortly after the big waterfall and then made our 2 hour trek back to...  more »
  • You can stop at parking on the side of the road but the descent to the bridge has no interest and the path is accessible by car without problem. For the ride provide sneakers, unlike some reviews, there is not climbing to do if it is said to follow a path marked by red dots and it's your accessible waterfall is very beautiful even though there was that little water end of October (enough to make beautiful) is not stayed up to the beach because we will do this long way from the beach (so 2 times) got us him advised.

  • Very beautiful Gorge along a small river. It is not very well signed so you need to improvise a lot. Very important, when you find the arch bidge, go under, not over cause you will get lost. The Gorge is a 5km trail rather easy, even for children, but the beach at the end is not so nice for a relaxing swim. It is very rocky and wavy. Overall it is more than worth the visit.
  • Fun walk, climbing down on rocks in a place that sometimes looks like a jungle. Wear proper walking shoes as the path is sometimes quite difficult. Park the car at the start of the trail down, or drive the small concrete road down to the bridge. The trail proceeds by going under the bridge, not over! After 1,5 hours you will be at the staircase down to the waterfall. Follow the red painted dots on rocks closely. We've lost the trail a couple of times :-) After the waterfall we turned around and took the same path up. People say that the last part to the beach and back isn't the most interesting route.
  • my feet are ...out os service . heheheh :)
  • Great hike. But take care, we met and helped two old french people who got kind of stuck, since some pieces require some climbing. Great for children.
  • Delightful 10.5k walk through shady gorge down to the sea and back with a mid point break at the cascade Liked the oleander, ipomena, wild thyme, olives and figs. Saw many butterflies, dragonflies and lizards Passed the romantic ruins of 2 old mills
