📃 Description and information of the Melancia Falls Hiking tour

Waterfalls in Paraty don’t get bigger or better than The Melancia Falls, hidden away in the Serra da Bocaina National Park:

With the highest plunge in Paraty The Melancia is spectacular!

The Melancia Falls hike starts after a 40 minute journey by road from Paraty to the trailhead. The Falls are reached via a trail through lush Rainforest with lots of birdlife on the way. This is a remote area, only accessible by walking trail. On arrival at the first section of the Falls you will have a chance to appreciate the sheer size of this waterfall. After walking another 15 minutes you reach the second falls where you can swim in the crystal clear waters, snack, hang out and rest before the hike back along the same trail.

As a 4 hour round trip on forest trails the Melancia Falls hike is considered to be a medium to challenging hike. If you are a hiker this is the day out for you!
