Reach Falls Jamaica

Visit one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Jamaica. Reach Falls can be found in Portland Parish.  Just South of Manchioneal, three miles inland off the A4, the Drivers River plunges 30’ into a wide aqua pool.

Watch Reach Falls YouTube video

Note: Since January 2007 Reach Falls is now under the management of the Urban Developement Corp. There are now strict guidelines (and fees) to enter the waterfalls, however the walk up with Renny is still available.

Nearby is a banana path where you can enter the river and walk up the river to the waterfalls. Consider contacting Renny for guide services. Ask for him at the crossroads by Bigga's Tuc Shop on the road to the falls or a Jah Priest's stall. Plan to pay $300JD (about $5US) each for Renny's service and he will take care of you.

A walk up the Drivers River to Reach Falls.

Adventure your way up the slippery cascades, wading the shallows and swimming thru the deeper turquoise pools.  The water is crystal clear and refreshing, the scenery of hanging vines, stands of bamboo and cascading falls is quite spectacular.  The pool below the main waterfalls has been used as a backdrop in the Tom Cruise movie, "Cocktail".

The travel adventure really begins when you stay near the waterfalls at Reach Falls River Camp with Bredda Lion and all the Jamaican artists that live in this community.
