Mele Cascades, Port Vila

4.4
Any fan of waterfalls and beauty of nature will want to visit Mele Cascades. This waterfall cascades down several shelves before pouring into a natural pool. Visitors take a bit of a hike through the forest and streams to reach the attraction. Keep in mind you will be wading through streams, so wear appropriate footwear. Once at the pool, you can take a dip to cool off and admire the fish up close. Remember to take swimwear, a towel, and water.

Where to stay in Port Vila

As Efate's largest town and the hub of tourist activity, Port Vila offers solid lodging options catering to foreign visitors. Consider staying in an upscale hotel or chain resort along the shores of Vila Bay for easy access to beaches and central attractions. Many hotels and guesthouses allow children under 12 to stay free of charge, and checking for this ahead of time can help you score extremely economical accommodations. You can also look for affordable rooms a bit out of town, at inland guesthouses or low-key resorts. If you do choose to go that far, consider renting a car.
