The scenery on the way to the waterfall is breathtaking. The waterfalls and pools are worth the drive up the ravine. Take your swimming suit with. You will want to dip into that clear blue water.

Beautiful and wild place for a swimming, pure water. To walk down to the waterfall to have a bath it's rather difficult, put on the right right shoes that can go wet and take with you just the minimun necessary. The road to drive there...More

A road is long and beautiful and you have to be a good driver, there's so many narrow passes and hairpins (as on every mountain road in this island). The waterfall is wonderfull, you can stay nearby for few hours and take pictures and have...More
