Tenaru Falls, Honiara

#2 of 13 in Parks in Solomon Islands
Nature / Park · Waterfall
Trek through miles of unspoiled jungle and marvel at the beauty of Tenaru Falls, the jewel in the crown of the Guadalcanal Rainforest. Tumbling 60 m (200 ft) into the turquoise Chea River, this pair of waterfalls is only accessible by foot, but a swim in the cool waters beneath is an ideal reward for your exertions. The flat, slippery trek involves several river crossings, so hire an experienced guide and bring appropriate footwear. Take plenty of food and water, avoid traveling with young children, and be respectful of the locals whose land you pass through. Tenaru Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
