This is a very crowded tourist spot. It makes for some good pictures and is a fun climb up the falls. Be sure to wear good shoes for climbing on wet rocks. To really see some better scenery try the Blue Hole.

We decided to visit Dunn's Falls Beach following our climb on Dunn's Falls. It's included in the price so, why not? It was a scenic walk down to the beach with beautiful ocean views and foliage, including a magnificent tree. The water was a beautiful aqua and especially unique, due to the waterfalls emptying into it. A rare treat! The... More

Really love the BLUE waters and walking alongside the shore while being able to watch the people climb the water falls. Its a treat to hear the sounds of the water falls as you relax on the beach.

It's was really awesome, it would be a 5 if the vendors in the shopping area weren't so pushy. Wear shoes with really good grip.

We booked Dunn's River tour as a package deal through our hotel for $100 per person. We took a shuttle from our hotel to the catarman. The catarman was so packed! There was approx 92 people on our boat. We then went out to snorkel, one by one each person had to exit the boat in the back (getting the... More

Beach was OK. Lots of debris from the falls (leaves, twigs etc) and due to the fresh water meeting the sea water, there was a strange change in temperature whilst in the water. Not my favourite beach in JA.

Nice Beach, with white sand, and warm waters. It was neat to see Dunn's Falls draining into the ocean.

Before the climb of the falls, I thought it would be a challenge because I'm not very athletic but I must say, it was not as bad as I expected. I actually did way better than I thought. When you arrive to the falls area, your group has an experienced guide along with a guy recording the video for purchase.... More
