Fautaua Waterfall#2 in Best Things To Do in Tahiti
- 0.0Food Scene
You may actually prefer visiting Tahiti during its rainy season for the Fautaua Waterfall alone, as more rainwater makes the waterfall even more dramatic. Located in the verdant Fautaua Valley, this natural wonder's sparkling water cascades 985 feet down into a large pool. To reach the waterfall, you'll have to take a pretty arduous hike, which is probably best done with a tour group or guide (your hotel or vacation rental host should be able to provide information on local guides).
Many travelers say you won't regret the trek to the Fautaua Waterfall. Travelers say the scenic hike is part of the adventure, though some do note the trek is a bit steep in areas and the falls can be tough to find.
Bring along some insect repellent if you're prone to mosquito bites, since the pesky bugs are thick near the falls. If you decide to go it alone, you'll need to procure a 645 French Polynesian Francs (or $7 USD) permit from the Town Hall in Papeete. And when you purchase the permit, ask the attendant to point you in the right direction; the trailhead is located not far from downtown Papeete.
