Ok we wanted to walk somewhere where there was forest. We wanted to know what was this island like before people arrived. I wanted to see mountain and trees. So we decided to drive out to Charmel, on our way we took a wring turn...More

Even taking into consideration that we've been there during drought season, this was not much to look at.

Nice little stop to view the falls as part of day trip. Easily accessible after a short walk. Great setting and well worth spending some time here

In the middle of a large natural resort is this beautiful view point. Although the fall can not fully be seen it is certainly worth a visit.

Nice waterfront but it covered by trees and you need to claim up to the view stand to have a better look at it, even so you will not have a good view on it.

I feel a little guilty rating this as average but I've done that in comparison to other - and more amazing - destinations nearby. The waterfall is good, if a little small (and distant), but the views from the viewing platform are outstanding. Worth a...More
