“Amazing! Bring a bikini!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

My boyfriend and I took a dodgy but fun bus ride up to the entrance of the park area for 3 dollars each. As we arrived it chucked down with rain and we were soaked through - but this was a relief as the rainfrorest area is hot and clammy. We made the slippery walk down through the rainforest. It took about 45 minutes. There is a a sort of path carved through the forest that you can easily follow. Because we did it on our own we didn't feel rushed and 'lead' by a group or guide.
We made it to the falls which just took my breath away. Pictures do not do it justice. They are huge! We took a few pictures and then braved the refreshing, cool, waterfall pool whilst wearing trainers. I have to admit that I was scared and exhilarated at the same time. My heart was pounding as I tried to swim against the current of the water and you can't see the bottom of the pond so you have no idea if a scary fish is going to take a nibble. The natural force of the waterfall, cold water, noise and power, plus the lush, amzaing, Attenborough-esque forest around me was unreal..Then all of a sudden a skinny Grenadian lad in speedos and jelly shoes runs up and scales the entire waterfall wall and dives off the top, emerges from the first pool, climbs up then dives off the second fall. This just topped it off. What a day! The trek back is a little tiring but worth it. I would suggest that you do need to be a fairly active to make it. If you do one thing in Grenada then do this. You don't need a guide - just a bus fare and some old trainers you're willing to throw away after trekking and swimming in the jungle. There is parking if you have hired a car but no changing facilities so you will get a few looks whilst changing in the parking lot. A definite must do in Grenada.

“Tropical Rainforest close up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We took a hike to this attraction with a local guide and there was some surprisingly challenging terrain, however it all added to the experience and there was plenty to see on the way.

The waterfall in itself is not overly impressive but worth the walk to have a bathe and watch the antics of the waterfall diver doing his death defying backflips!

“Great Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My extended family is all here Grenada and we made our first day trip from our villa to Seven Sisters. I wouldn't disagree with much of anything the previous posts but would add the following insights. We were a group of 12 with ages ranging from 12 to 61. This was a self-guided tour with two cars. It was a great adventure all around.

1) Getting there is half the fun/adventure. Having some experience in driving on the left hand side of the road in the 3rd world is definately a plus. Driving on wet, windy, mountain roads with few barriers on the edge in another ‘trip’ all in itself.
2) We too hooked up with Kenny as our self-appointed guide. It turned out to be both a good thing and not so good thing. Kenny was very opinionated and was convinced some the older. Larger people in our group were never going to make it. We showed him. He was very helpful in spots on the trail, helping across challenging rocks, giving advice on where to swim. He tried repeatedly to extract more the $20 we gave him at the end.
3) I would say you need to allow 2 hours in total to get the total experience at the falls and an 2hours in driving time (there and back) allwing for a wrong turn or two.

“Extra info you may need to know.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

As everyone has said : steep and slippy , wear good shoes , nice to swim in the pools , some great plants on the walk down.

Extra info : if you're driving yourself there be aware that it's NOT sign posted as Seven Sisters Falls - its " St Margrets Falls" ! The turn off can be found about 2 or 3 km past the Grand Etang Lake when heading away from St Georges.... it's the first ( narrow !) tarmac road on the right that you come to after the lake. Small green sign " St Margrets Falls"

It takes about 15 mins to walk to the falls.... it's really not far.it is steep and slippy though.

You don't need a guide - there's only one path ! After paying (EC $5 per person ) walk down the track - when it splits after a couple of hundred meters your options are : right uphill on broken Tarmac or left up some muddy steps past the bright blue tin hut - go left ! Past the blue hut. The track goes all the way to the falls.

Having said that paying a guide puts money into the local economy ( good ) and they know about the plants.
