If avoiding massive throngs of tourists is important to you… then Reach Falls is a better option than Dunn’s River Falls any day! Not as steep or long as Dunn’s River, but equally as beautiful and much more peaceful. It was teaming with shiny silver fish not very frightened of you. There is a cave at the end you can... More

Being that the UDC is managing Reach Falls, I definetly recommend you go straight to Reach Falls as oppose to going with a 'local tour guide'. I have NOTHING against the local tour guides, however they don't actually have access to the MAIN attraction which is the falls itself. Whatever 'tour' they will carry you, will only be to the...

We have been visiting here many times over thirty years. Used to be privately owned, now the governement owns it. We liked it better when it was private and more natural. If you have never been, you should still go! You can stay close by at Zion Country Eco Cabins!

I traveled the coast from Kanopi House to Reach Falls. The staff is kind and the area is well kept, a sign of greater things to come i thought. The falls is breath taking and the cold water refreshing. stay for the day and eat, drink and take lots and lots of photos....i ran back "home" to the tree house... More

Very beautifull falls and still not "infested" by tourists as the Dunn River Falls. I advise you walk up the river instead of just going straight to the falls. It is a completely different experience!

Everyone hears of Dunns River Falls, but if you are ever in Jamaica for a week and you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the known tourist sites and you don't mind the driving, then visit Reach Falls. It's a smaller falls but it has enough climb and shallow swimming area to keep your attention. The... More

Very family oriented area. The fall is not that steep so it's manageable to climb. The small area for swimming is a bit rocky so swimming shoes are advised. The water is clean and clear and is suitable for children. There is a picnic area before taking the stairs to the base of the fall so if you walk with... More
