Talafofo Falls


Talafofo Falls is actually a series of small waterfalls with numerous natural swimming pools. These pools are home to very large shrimp. This is the only continuously flowing river in Saipan and originates from a spring a mile inland. The hike to the falls is challenging and can take 30 to 90 minutes depending on the condition of the trail. My family, which included a 5 year old, 7 year old, and a 13 year old, hiked up there a week after typhoon Chaba and the trail was nonexistent. It is best to go there with someone who has been there before. I have been there a few times and I still got lost many times trying to find a route through the jungle. Whenever possible it was easiest to walk in the river itself. It is beautiful and well worth the hike, once every few years anyway.

Thanks. The river from the falls leads to Jeffery's Beach in Talafofo. From the main road hike up the river the opposite direction as the Jeffery's Beach road.

The bridge on one of the pictures was built by my family. That is our family ranch.
