Five Incredible Unknown Waterfalls in Jamaica

Reggae Falls

Located on The South-Eastern section of the island, neatly tucked away in a small village called “Hillside” St Thomas, you will find the Beautiful #Reggae Falls ( also known as Damhead).  

Reggae Falls is not today what it originally was.

In fact, the water from the Johnson River was dammed many, many years ago to make a hydro-electric station.


Despite this, it is no less spectacular than any other waterfalls on this beautiful island.

Tacky Falls


Located in the eastern parish of St. Mary you will find tacky falls. This is the most non commercialized falls on the entire island and if you visit chances are you will be there alone all day. The falls is named after the #Coromantee slave Tacky, who lead the slave rebellion in 1760. There are no signs, no formal paths, and plenty of hazards on the way to even reach the pretty obscure 60m tall (or higher) waterfall. If you are interested in visiting this falls then it is best to hike with a local guide.

Reach Falls

Reach Falls is located approximately 45 minutes east of Port Antonio, Portland and is named one of the most beautiful attractions in Jamaica. It  was first discovered by runaway slaves from plantations in the neighbouring parish of St Thomas who sought refuge in the hills of the John Crow Mountains

It features a natural heart-shaped #Jacuzzi which caresses every inch of your body with its cascading waters . While it is getting more and more popular, it is still relatively unknown, therefore, you can still find your escape at this magical waterfall neatly tucked away beneath the tall mystical trees of a beautiful #rainforest.
