Beautiful waterfall in south of Mauritius. A bit difficult to access, but with GPS was no problem. It is free and we could swim under waterfalls.

Didn't really choose a good day as the weather was awful but all the bushes and trees could do with a trim as this massively spoils the view. Nice drive to get there and we saw monkeys unexpectedly but wouldn't rush to go back

A complete waste of time & not worth the treacherous drive getting there! Very poor signage, Google maps was highly confused and tried taking us down many dead end roads. Serious anticlimax, the waterfall is small or more suited for kids diving and swimming. Give...More

Definitely worth a trip to see the waterfall and volcanic rock formations. We visited late afternoon time (approx. half five) so not many other visitors were there. The falls are signposted as your drive out of Souillac along a road that becomes a dirt track...More

Driving to the falls is somewhat suspect. you have to drive up a street which is in a poor condition followed by a cane field. Then you will appear on a land with a graveyard on your left and you will see what looks like...More

Beautiful waterfall! As a photography advocate it's nice to have falls you can up close to. Having read the reviews, we had no trouble whatsoever following the signs to the falls, or reaching them despite being in a small car, that's the adventurous part after...More

The road from Souillac gets worse and worse as, hopefully having followed some small homemade signs, you get closer to the falls. The last few hundred metre descent is treacherous. Single track, lots of mud and lots of rocks - and don't forget what you...More

What a hidden gem. Beautiful and relaxing. You can even have a swim, and if you are daring and brave enough have a dive just like the locals. Although we only took our shoes off sat on the rocks and watch the locals dive off...More

Once we finally found the falls .... ( go to Souillac and then there are a few cardboard signs that point the way. You can drive to the falls but the road is a track with huge potholes. We were only in a Hyundai Accent...More

Hi, I checked on Google Maps and seems to list two Rochester Falls. Both are close by each other. Although one seems to be in the middle of a field (near Chamouny Road) and another looks like it's just off the B9 road. Can't be sure which it is. Can anyone help? I just need to know which one I should be heading to. THanks!
