Faarumai Waterfalls, Arue

#2 of 6 in Nature in Tahiti
Waterfall · Nature / Park
Witness the rush of water at Faarumai Waterfalls, a picturesque waterfall located in the dense rainforest. Easily accessible by car or bicycle, a parking lot sits just a short walk from the waterfall itself. The falls cut through the volcanic rock and cascade into a pool, surrounded by magnificent trees, shrubs, and wildlife. Enjoy a picnic on the rocks surrounding the falls, or hike out into the wilderness to gain another perspective on the scenic and photogenic spot. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes, as the rocks surrounding the pool are slippery when wet. Take the guesswork out of planning a Arue vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Must see and spend a few hours. Love the nature and this is as close as you can get to nature and kiss it. Make sure to take your swimming outfits and towels with you and enjoy the water. It’s a must....  more »
  • This is off the beaten path, the walk to the waterfalls is pretty with lots of plants and flowers. The history of the falls is on a sign at the top  more »
  • Beautiful uncrowded waterfall in a wonderful rain forest. If you are in Papeete, it's a must do stop. There are some food options onsite (mostly coconut and other local fruits). Hike is very short (2 minutes after crossing the bridge) and it's super easy to find. Time to spend there: around 10 minutes. Only 4 stars out of 5 because the trail to the other waterfalls is damaged and hasn't been repaired for a while.
  • Go see it It’s a quick but impacting view of a beautiful waterfall.
