Rarely Visited Waterfalls and Rivers in Jamaica

I’ve been in a lot of bodies of water in Jamaica including a few from the following lists. But the land of wood and water certainly has more rivers than anyone can get into, including me, though I plan to try.

I often measure the quality of a day in Jamaica by the number of bodies of water I’m able to get into. A really good day would have a pre-breakfast swimming pool wake-up, an ocean swim or snorkel, a trip to a river or waterfall, and maybe a hot spring like at Milk River.  In fact I the day we went to Gut River and Milk River bath, I had a 4-water-bodies day.

This one is Breadnut Falls. It’s in St Elizabeth so not far from Treasure Beach which is one of my favorite areas to visit, so I think I will check it out next time:

Omigosh this one just speaks to me. I’ve been at this river but not this part, now I need to find this spot!

I’ve been to a few of these. Gut River is one of the more remote that can actually be reached by car, we spent a couple of hours there.  Mayfield is an old favorite, pretty close to Negril, so I’ve been 2-3 times.  I had a wonderful swim at Dornoch’s Head, though the drive down was not for the faint of heart. Kwame Falls was a boat-then-hike adventure along the wild and undeveloped NE coast, I’ll never forget that one.  So I’ve been to four…that leaves nine from that list.

Jamaicans.com has a similar list.

This one is Reach Falls and it is probably still the most beautiful one I have visited in Jamaica. It’s been developed by the UDC since I was there, but Port Antonio is just not that busy a tourist area so I doubt it gets big crowds except perhaps locals on weekends. That’s pretty much all we saw there when we went.  The water comes from underground and doesn’t travel far above ground, just like Gut River, which is what I’m told makes them so clear.

I’ve been to the cousin of this one, this is Tacky Falls, in the same general area as Kwame falls.

Most people know about Jamaica’s most popular waterfalls like Dunns River, however, there are other Jamaican waterfalls located are all over the island.
