Dunn’s River Falls without a doubt is the most popular attraction in Ocho Rios and one of Jamaica’s natural treasures. A 15 minutes drive from the town of Ocho Rios, Dunn’s River Falls is internationally known as a living-growing phenomenon consisting of 600 feet of cascading waterfalls with several natural pools surrounded by dense forestry.
At the bottom of the Falls is one of Jamaica’s best beaches where you can engage in water sports, or just bask in the sun while enjoying the scenery. There are restaurants, a craft market and restrooms conveniently located in beautiful surroundings.
Climbing the fall is a wet but easily navigable ascent from its starting point on the beach and is quite exhilarating as you’re showered with cool clear water all the way to the top (approximately 45 minutes). It’s best to use a guide as he knows the safest spots, will take care of your pictures and will help you enjoy the experience. We suggest tennis or aqua shoes for safety as well as comfort.
At the end of the climb, you’ll exit through the Craft Market where local vendors will help you find that special souvenir. Not interested in climbing? How about a picnic in the park or on the beach? Maybe you’d like to have your hair braided. Hair braiding shacks are located in the park. Hungry? Have a taste of our spicy Jamaican Jerked Chicken, Pork or Fish from the restaurants or savor the taste of your favorite Baskin & Robbins Ice cream.
