Reich Falls is another of Jamaica’s amazingly scenic rivers cum waterfalls, but is less well known than the famous Dunn’s River Falls in St. Ann, and therefore much less crowded.
The main waterfall is about seven meters high and twenty meters wide with a large natural pool (great for swimming) and a cave (hidden by the waterfall) at the bottom of the falls. You can also climb to the top of the falls and jump into the pool below, or take a trek higher up the river, although a guide is recommended for both. Now managed by the UDC, there are stairs all the way down to the river as well as toilets and changing facilities. Parts of the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail were filmed there.
This is truly beautiful setting. The water is cool, refreshing, and crystal clear. Vines hang and natural bamboo stand throughout the falls. You will see species of plants here that you won’t see anywhere else in the world. If you go beneath the waterfalls you will see hidden holes that are naturally carved out by the water. You’ll even find a secret cave behind one of the falls that you can step in, then climb out just above the cascade.
