The Rochester Falls are well worth a visit while visiting the south of Mauritius. The waterfall is beautifully surrounded by trees and you can enjoy it without many people being there. You can take a swim and relax at the sound of the waterfall, but you can also climb the waterfall and take a jump.
How to get there?
The Rochester Falls are in the south of Mauritius, close to the village Souillac. You have to drive to Surinam and along the way you will have to take a turn into a street with a hand written sign to Rochester Falls. You can also go to Surinam and at the traffic lights turn into Chamouny Road. From here it will be a little bit of an off-road adventure. Continue driving for about two minutes and you will find the location where to park the car.
You can jump off the Rochester Falls from several points. Yet, you still have to go through risky climb to reach most places. While climbing around 10 meters to the top is not recommended, it is possible. You can also just take a three-minute walk to the top. There is a bush path next to the waterfall. Needless to say, be careful while climbing and where you risk to jump. Off course there are rocks in the water at several spots. Therefore, we recommend you to check first where the locals are jumping so you know which places are safe.
A stunning waterfall
The Rochester Falls are perfect as well for escaping the sun and relaxing in the water while admiring your surroundings. You can enjoy the beauty in silence and the playful will enjoy themselves as well.
Enjoy your trip to Rochester Falls!
