The place is amazing, the land around the falls is full of quartz, and so in the sunlight the whole falls really sparkle and the colour of the water is an idyllic turquoise. It is the perfect size, and fits every dream you may have...More

The trail has approximately 2 km on foot and 5 km by car. Beautiful views along the walking. A crystalline water (and very cold too) in the natural pool formed by the fall, which is one of the most beautiful that I have ever seen.

You will need transport to the trailhead. There is a short easy walk to the Santa Barbara falls. It is a great place for a swim.
