Waterfall Safety and Common Sense

Waisila Falls is a small 15m waterfall deep in the Colo-i-Suva (pronounced “THOLL-oh-ee-SOO-vah”) Forest Park on the northern outskirts of the capital city of Suva.

This waterfall was thin, but the forest setting of both the trail to get here and at the waterfall itself was serene and quiet.

Thus, it contrasted nicely with the more urban scene of the city of Suva itself.

While there were a couple of ways to walk here (there were two entrances or I guess you could think of it as an entrance and exit of a shuttle hike), we managed to walk the 750m to the falls from the “exit” of the park (on the park’s west end).

Taking this approach, we had to descend quite a few stairs before getting to the falls.

We could’ve continued on the trail to the other side of the park (and the other car park) while seeing other features like the Upper Pools and Lower Pools, but this was where we turned back.

The entire excursion (the out-and-back hiking and photographing) took us about an hour.

However, we very easily could’ve extended this excursion if we had chosen to visit other sights nearby.


Waisila Falls resides in the Colo-i-Suva Forest Park on the island of Viti Levu, Fiji. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit the official Fiji Tourism website.

There were two car parks for the Colo-i-Suva Forest Park. One car park is for the Upper Pools. We took the other car park, which was right off the Princes Road near the Forest Park Visitor Information and Ticket Office (about 10km north of Suva).

We didn’t park at the Upper Pools so we can’t really say anything about its directions other than it’s off the unsealed Kalabu Road, which also leaves the Princes Rd near the Visitor Center.
