Somerset Falls, Port Antonio

3.8
#4 of 6 in Nature in Portland Parish
Don't miss the cascade of water surrounded by lush greenery at Somerset Falls. The garden surrounding the falls teems with exotic plant life, including crotons, bamboo, cocoa plants, ferns, and indigo. Follow the concrete path through the tranquil surroundings, and take a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the pond. Go on a guided gondola tour to the "hidden falls"--probably the site's biggest tourist draw. Bring a camera to capture the luminous turquoise water and rushing falls; turn off your camera's flash for best results.

  • To travel from Kingston to Port Antonio stopped on the road to get to know this place. Worth the value of the input!! We left our stuff in the car and we're in the place of bathing suits and with the gopro. We made the boat ride in which they let us do the back swimming. It was great. Even raining, was one of the best experiences of Jamaica.

  • Drove by yesterday - sad & disappointed to learn that Somerset Falls is permanently closed. We've visited numerous times in the past & wanted to introduce my nephew but, unfortunately, it was deserted...  more »

  • Only reopened a week or so before we visited. One of the better value falls to visit. Swimming pool and cafe so could spend a few hours there and chill out. Staff friendly and helpful. Toilets could be better.
  • Our team of 5 went to Somerset Falls on Sunday 11th February 2018 to celebrate my brothers 25th birthday and it was just an exceptional choice, celebration and experience. The whole atmosphere is just relaxing and a get-away and the staff there is just amazing and attentive. The food was lovely; we had jerk and it was worth more than we paid. We spent the entire day there and had activities to last all day Thank You Very Much, and the rafting across the road was as exciting as it is soothing. I'd revisit anytime and would recommend this place to everyone. Pool-lifeguard, Boat-tour guy, Slide-operator, kitchen staff and ticket guy was very customer service oriented and made our day felt special and safe. Thank you again.
  • Lovely place to visit but not much to do apart from entering the falls via boat. Recently changed ownership so the owner's said the bar and grill area should be open by summer.
  • Boat ride to the falls, natural and man made pools and a water slide are among the attractions i would recommend for both local and tourists its a nice getaway in Portland, Jamaica
  • Waterslides, caves, rafting, beach, pool, and a lovely restaurant plus rooms to stay over night with a fantastic tour guide. This place was awesome
