An out of the way falls but worth going out of the way to visit. Traveling to the falls gave you a beautiful view of the other side of Jamaica. You get to see beauty of the rolling hills, the beautiful homes and yes some not so beautiful homes, the warmth of the people and the fresh fruits on the... More

We tried to visit Somerset Falls but sadly it was closed for refurbishment, it is in a beautiful spot of jungle and woodlands and will be great to see once it has completed it's refurbishment so do check it's open when you plan to go!

The grounds are under construction (and technically closed) but we were still allowed to visit. We had the opportunity to meet the 2 men overseeing the changes and learned so much about the history of the falls and their vision. While I cannot rate the official facilities due to construction, the falls are just magnificent! Absolutely worth the visit!

I love many of the waterfalls in Jamaica and Somerset is my favourite. We have been there at least 4 times. It is located in the lush parish of Portland and is very small compared to say Dunn's River. The water is a bit chilly and if you like you can get a nice massage from the heavy water pressure....

The water is chilly, but it's so much fun to jump and climb on waterfalls. When we went it was an absolute ghost town, they have barricades for lines and such, but we were there with only one other couple.

We stopped here on the way back from The Blue Lagoon. We were beyond surprised that there was amazing waterfall all the very back of this park. Mark was our tour guide and did an amazing job showing us everything and helping us get a great massage. We'll definitely be back!

We drove to Port Antonio to spend a few days. Somerset falls was on our list of attractions to visit. We arrived at about noon, only to find a cartridge paper sign notifying us of the closure! We were terribly disappointed as we did nit go to Reach falls!

I'm not going to say the falls are a must do, but in you're in Port Antonio...why not? Overall it's a fairly small area and you'll finish up in less than an hour. Be sure to take the raft ride the locals offer down the river and have some coconut water on the way.
