Reggae falls
Dec 2019 • Solo
One of the best waterfalls I have ever seen. The drive is not easy to get from the main road to the falls but once you get there it is worth the drive. The perfect place to bring some music, food and drinks to just hang for the entire day.

Fun for a swim
Nov 2019 • Couples
We had good fun going for a quick swim in this waterfall. The water was refreshing, and you can go behind the falls, which is cool. There is some litter around the place, but the water is clean.

Be aware that it's not a natural water fall - it's a manmade damn or something like that. And it's slightly tricky to drive there - for example, there is a ford to cross, but water levels were safe to drive through when we were there.

The locals are constantly coming up with new ways to extract money from tourists though. A guy on a bike forced us down a side road to another guy wearing a 'reggae falls site manager' tshirt asking for donations to help keep the river clean and paint the half-painted building behind him. We knew it was free to visit, so got passed him without paying, but he was reasonably pushy and said all sorts of things to try to guilt us into paying. If you want it to be a free trip, just don't give him money (or any of the people at the falls offering to watch your car for you).

Reggae Falls - Simple but AMAZING!
Aug 2019 • Friends
So we wanted to take our friends and a newly wed couple to the River the day after they got married. In our head we wanted to take them not too far Kingston so we head to St. Thomas. We googled 3 options and we decided to try Reggae Falls.

This turned out to be a great decision. It was our first time and it was a wonderful experience. The actual falls area is beautiful with the main attraction the heavy water gushing from high above onto your back.

It seems to be yet another of the hidden treasures of Jamaica.

Only issue was a man who was at the venue dressed in a logoed shirt with ID collecting $200 per person saying its in aid of the upkeep of the property and restrooms. I never saw a restroom nor did i see any sign of what needs to be upkeep. The Police from the area also said his charge is illegal and we should not have paid.

But it's definately a must see and do when you can!

Refreshingly Cold Adventure!

The best places on earth are not easily accessible by everyone! On my recent trip to Jamaica, I decided to visit somewhere I never been before. I kept hearing about "Reggae Falls", so I decided to go see what the hype is all about.

The Trip there - This was one bumpy ride. The roads definitely need some improvement. Winding roads, potholes everywhere, valleys, you name it, but if you go in late may, to late June, you won't mind. MANGOES EVERYWHERE! I've never seen a place with more mangoes just falling to the ground on the side of the road! Like seriously, and they're absolutely amazing. You can choose to even pick one from low hanging trees, stone a fresh one from the tree, or just find a good solid one to enjoy.

Now back on the trip, this is one place I'd say it's best you get a guide. There's a guy that will be standing out the front most of the time. He's dark skin, fit and will guide you to the falls for the road ends and you'll have to drive on sand. One thing not to forget, it's best you go by a van or truck. A car will be too low to cross the water. yes I did say cross the water.

Make sure you talk to the guy and negotiate with him before you let him lead you anywhere! He will try to charge you per person or $1000 jamaican dollars plus (about 10 USD). Offer upfront so you don't get surprised with a big fee.

Once there, he can tell you where to park and where to walk. At this time I'll also remind you to bring water shoes. Most people who visit here are not used to walking barefoot outside, so your feet will be super tender trying to walk on river rocks. Sneakers are no good either, please get water shoes or rubber slippers.

The rest is history! - The falls are coming from way up! So be careful if you decide to get directly under the falls. IT WILL BEAT YOU GOOD! The water is cold, not chilly, COLD! So it's best to just jump in rather than try to slowly crawl in.

Other than that, it's amazing! Remember to bring food and snacks because for some reason I was super hungry half way in the trip!

Loved every minute of it and truly enjoyed myself! I'll definitely go back next time I visit if I have the time!

One of Jamaica's Beautiful Falls
May 2019 • Family
On a weekday, take a drive to Reggae Falls. Nature at its best, the falls is beautiful and majestic. Pack a picnic or support the local economy and spend the day relaxing, swimming, diving and eating. Be sure to drive a vehicle that can take you across low points of the river so that you can get close access to the falls. Weekends are more crowded so try this on a weekday.

Fun time at the falls
Feb 2019 • Friends
Cool relaxing time at the Falls!
Make sure you bring water shoes, cause the rocks are slippery and sharp!
Lots of music and people having a fun time.
We went on a Sunday and it was quite busy and FULL of locals & tourists.
It took about 3 hrs from Kingston.
GOOGLE MAPS was definitely a big help!!!

The picture was taken at @ about 6pm when most people had already left.

Bring a comfortable footwear, camera and get ready to have a nature fun filled day.

On August 1st in 2018, My friends and I visited the fall in St. Thomas around 3 o'clock. Upon arriving the only bad thing about it was that, while walking to the falls the stone was a bit rough for my barefoot if I had known I'd walked with my slippers. When I reach the falls, the scenery was lovely, I recommend persons to travel with their camera because the place calls for a lot of picture taking and the atmosphere was refreshing. It is a good place to bring your food, eat, drink and hang out with friends while enjoying the falls or simply just watching the beauty of it.

You do not need a car four wheel drive¡
Jan 2019 • Couples
I WAS A DAY WITH LIGHT RAIN. But it's better to go with the sun, so you could take a good dip in the water. They charge $ 5 for the guide and $ 3 for parking. In the surroundings there are almost no facilities. But the place is very nice to spend about two hours in the water. The road from Kingston is in regular conditions, but as you get to the site the road becomes narrow and dangerous, ON ALL ROAD BE CAREFUL WITH THE CURVES.

Hidden gem

Not as famous as Dunns river but just as impressive. It is off the beaten track and rather difficult to get to but trust me it is worth it. Based in st Thomas.

Reggae falls is very nice. The view and water is amazing but the journey to get there was tiring and the roads are not the best.
