A little on the adventurous side and not so suitable for people with limited mobility but beautiful!

Used a local name Leonard we got through Great Huts and he met us before the entrance and we trekked basically up and then back down the river. That is, in the river. Bring a bathing suit and maybe waterproof camera and leave everything else at your hotel. Our guide cost 500 Jamaican.

We were fortunate enough to meet a nice couple from England who wanted to join us on our journey to Reach Falls. When we arrived, our guide Leonard greeted us right away and was super friendly. This place is a true hidden gem. Leonard skipped up the river almost effortlessly and told us exactly where to step/swim and what all... More

The fall was not as much as expected, but I believe that's because there was not much rain during last and this year. But the area is well maintained and security and guards in place. Reaching the small cave is really thrilling as the water cascades at the entrance heavily. It was such a fun. Worth visiting and spending around... More

Take the cave tour with a guide. They take you upstream to a natural cave and water features. The tour guides are helpful and look after your safety.

We had Reach Falls to ourselves and enjoyed the surrounding rainforest, the caves behind the falls, and the refreshing swimming area. The facilities are excellent. Due to it's location away from the resort towns, Reach feels less touristy.

Although a little far off the 'beaten path', it is a river well worth the visit. The water is cool and clear with a fairly decent fall. Decent grounds, well kept with all the necessary amenities including food. The swimming/wading area is not very large however, so my choice was to get there early and leave before it got crowded.

A hidden gem, my family and I had a great day. It was a little hard to find but the locals were very helpful. Clean facilities -toilets and changing rooms. All I can say its a beautiful place. Looking forward on going again.

Excellent facilities: bathrooms and change rooms, visit during the week when it is the least crowded. Price is $10US for non Jamaicans, or $300JA for residents. As for a group rate for large groups.

It's beautiful. There isn't a lot of swimming area. The space with the most area for swimming has deep water. The tour is worth going on where you walk back along the river. It's good to have good sandals or water shoes on. Otherwise you'll be walking on some sharp rocks at times.
