This is the most beautiful spot! Te falls are breathe taking and the swimming in the fresh spring water is so refreshing! The falls are closed on Mondays so make sure you find a day to visit! We went on a Monday and couldn't get the "full tour". Through the caves and to the top....but even just getting to the... More

Reach falls is worthy of a visit for nature lovers, and the adventurous who would enjoy traversing a delightful waterfall and swimming in a refreshingly cool river and relaxing with a natural massage from the cascading water at numerous points on the river..

Our favourite attraction. The water is beautifully clear and cool. It was fantastic to be able to swim through the caves hidden behind waterfalls and jump off rocks into deep fresh water pools. Don't let people bully you into hiring reef shoes if you don't want them. My country girl feet were fine on the smooth rocks, but others may... More

We traveled with our children and they loved reached falls. They enjoyed climbing into the falls - it was like spelunking! The guides were great. I was surprised at the level of security and organizations at this site. A nice place to explore. The road to reach falls is slow but follows so the coastline so you are rewarded with... More

We got there 15 minutes before it closed for the day. We had not appreciated in advance that this is a 'official' site with tickets and controlled access. They refused us tickets but did let us have a look at the lower waterfall. It probably makes sense from a Jamaican Government perspective but we much prefer less touristy adventures.

Reach falls by itself is a pretty falls - nothing too very extra-ordinary . It isn't big like some of the other ones we have seen nor it is voluminous . But what makes it a lot of fun is how you get there. We heard about Leonard thru our host at a homestay and tripadvisor. We called him and... More

This is not Dunn's river falls, but the family really enjoyed the experience and it's well worth the visit! Our guide was excellent. We had the opportunity to climb through a couple caves, swim, and hike. My daughter wanted to go to Dunn's River, but at the end, she was singing Reach Falls praises. I highly recommend!

We were the only people at Reach Falls when we visited and it was amazing. Beautiful falls in a quiet setting, and well worth the trek upstream which is a option extra at no extra cost. If we had visited the day before we would have encountered another group at the falls... Katy Perry and entourage! We were already aware... More

We used a local guide, Leonard, instead of the government guides. A very different experience. He starts at the bottom of the Falls instead of the middle (where the government guides start) - makes all the difference. From this vantage point, the Falls are absolutely breathtaking. We found Leonard thru Trip advisor reviews. Check earlier reviews for Reach Falls to... More
