Waterfall is pretty impressive, with public swimming allowed.

The “trail” is concrete steps down to the waterfall. Cost us $6 (USD) per person. The area is pretty enough, but even when we went on a Monday it was packed. There’s a lifeguard who doesn’t allow people to swim too close to the falls. Very pretty, but we only ended up spending about an hour there.

Easy stroll down a well-maintained trail with gradual stair steps. Nice picturesque waterfall that is popular with locals for picnics and swimming. You can swim behind the falls, and even scramble to the top (although it's pretty slippery and dangerous--so be careful if you're feeling daring)!
