Legend has it enslaved labourers from nearby plantations discovered these falls in escape attempts, evading their pursuers by hiding in the caves.
Today Reach Falls is celebrated as a gem of Jamaican natural wonder and beauty. Several caves are hidden among the falls. Guided tours are now available in your entry ticket, and an option to walk a guided path alongside the river. However, if you’re a decent swimmer guides will encourage you to swim at least part of the journey by river, an excellent way to avoid mosquitoes and a wonderful way to experience the landscape.
The falls are surrounded with an impressive landscape of tropical rainforest, hanging vines, and bamboo caves. Want to go? Get in touch and we’ll create the perfect itinerary for you!
