Vaipo Waterfall

You'll have to catch a boat over to nearby Daniel's Bay to hike to the top of Polynesia's tallest waterfall outside of Hawaii and New Zealand. The water spouts from the basalt in a single jet (known as a horsetail-style falls) before tumbling 1,148 feet down a channel it's gouged into the rock face over centuries. The heat vaporizes the spray into mist before it hits the bottom, which creates a glossy shine on the canyon walls.
