Dunns River Falls

 

Dunn's River Falls & Park is the perfect environment for fun and relaxation for the entire family. 

Dunn's River Falls is a famous waterfall near Ocho Rios.  The falls empty into the Caribbean Sea. It is one of the very few waterfalls in the world that actually fall directly into the sea.The waterfalls are staggered and span some 180 metres (600 feet). Several small lagoons exist there, interspersed between the vertical sections of the falls. Climbing up the waterfalls is a popular tourist activity and is often, but not exclusively performed with the help of tour guides from the park, skilled at leading you up the falls and can use your camera to take your picture as you pose under the many falls.   The side of the falls is covered with lush, green vegetation that help shade the area from the sun. This helps keep the water cool as people try and climb the waterfall. The falls can be walked up with relative ease. Often a human chain is used snaking up the falls behind the tour guide. Dunn's River Falls was also the site of a location shoot for the 1988 Tom Cruise film Cocktail.Many sources claim that the falls were the setting for the James Bond film Dr No although the actual place was laughing waters some way down the coast. The not so daring can walk alongside and observe the falls and climbers from many entry points; while taking those memorable photographs.

For those sun lovers; there is a beach located at the base of Dunns River Falls where the river meets the ocean. At the top of Dunns River, you can expect to find souvenirs and crafts, shoe rentals, changing facilities, and lockers.

Dunns River Falls is a "must-do" activity when visiting Jamaica

Tour Tip: When visiting Dunns River Falls...bring a towel, wear swimwear, aqua socks or an old pair of shoes that you don't mind getting wet to protect your feet when climbing the falls, and bring a waterproof camera.
