Island Gully Falls, Ocho Rios
(4.8/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
A turquoise swimming hole in the hills of Ocho Rios, Island Gully Falls remains a secluded and relatively untouristed hidden gem. Splash and swim to your heart's delight in this refreshing natural pool at the base of a pristine waterfall. The area has few amenities, so bring your own essentials and wear shoes appropriate for uneven terrain. First-time visitors should bring a guide to negotiate the slippery terrain and point out safe (and unsafe) diving spots. While Jamaica's larger tour companies rarely take visitors to this unofficial attraction, many of the smaller local operators offer guided walks that include stops at the waterfall. A visit to Island Gully Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Ocho Rios family vacation planner to plot your vacation.
