What to Expect
Reach Falls is surrounded by beautiful nature, a tropical paradise with ferns and parrots. E looks just like you would imagine a jungle waterfall to look like. No wonder, its beauty has served as a backdrop for Hollywood many times, including the movie “Cocktail” with Tom Cruise.
There are two ways to discover the breathtaking Reach Falls, among the most beautiful waterfalls in Jamaica. The official trail is probably the most famous. You will see Reach Falls in all its glory and from every angle on this trail. You can make yourself comfortable at one of the picnic spots and enjoy nature and swim in the wonderfully romantic heart-shaped natural pool.
There are several small caves, and the most special and famous of them is called “Rabbit Hole” – a stunning underwater cave. Don't panic; the hole looks narrower than it is; no one has ever gotten stuck. When you are in the cave, enjoy the sight, because it sparkles and glitters like thousands of diamonds in the cave, by the reflection of the water.

But you will stop again and again at small waterfalls; there is also a natural small water slide, you can jump from rocks of different heights into the beautiful water and dive through a small cave. Here you should definitely have mosquito repellent and Water Shoes with you. Both trails could not be more different, each beautiful in its own way.

Reach Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Jamaica; it proves why Jamaica is called the “Land of Water.” This place is absolute relaxation and balm for the soul. The water has a pleasant temperature, and the color is beautiful. Both ways are entertaining and so unique in Jamaica.
When it rains, nature excursions are usually a little less enjoyable. Both trails are not barrier-free and not suitable for a stroller or a wheelchair. Physically, the path upstream is definitely much more strenuous than the official path, as it goes against the current and over hill and dale. The official way with the picnic area is accessible via a wide, safe staircase with railings.
