Reach Falls

Situated within an ecological sanctuary in Portland, these falls were first discovered by runaway slaves seeking refuge. Greenery circles the falls, and caves await those daring enough to explore them. A heart-shaped natural pool also lies near the falls.

Dunn’s River Falls

Considered one of Jamaica’s national treasures, this 960-foot-tall waterfall in Ocho Rios continuously renews itself from deposits of travertine rock. This comes from the calcium carbonate from the river flowing over the falls. Additionally, small, dome-shaped cataracts can be found within nearby limestone caves.

YS Falls

One of Jamaica’s premiere, nature-based attractions in St. Elizabeth, YS Falls opened in 1992 and continues to draw visitors and locals due to its beautiful scenery. Surrounded by lush gardens and trees, this seven-tiered waterfall cascades into natural pools for swimming. Recent additions to the area include canopy rides, taking guests from the top of the falls to its base.

 

Benta Falls

Benta Falls, a family-owned business, lies in Westmoreland, 9 miles from Negril. One of the country’s best-kept secrets, the attraction features waterfalls and a blue lagoon. At the falls, visitors can also explore acres of picnic trails and walk the orchards and farms showcasing local exotic flowers and fruit. Guests can climb the falls, bathe in the natural jacuzzi, relax in a mud bath and book a guided tour.
