Somerset Falls, Port Antonio

3.9
#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.

    This was our first visit to the falls, and the experience exceeded our expectation. It is evident that management took care to renovate the complex with a 'family friendly' focus. The boat ride to the...  more »

    Great nature park with great staff and a relaxing setting. There is a nice water slide and a pool and also a huge water fall and nice areas for swimming in the river. They offer a boat ride up stream river a tour of a cave which is very beautiful.

    Was a beautiful and fun attraction. Best visited on a weekend when you'll have access to the kids park, pool and water-slide. Fun walk up the trail to the falls followed by a boat ride to a cave hidden behind the falls.

    Hidden gem in the most beautiful parish located on the North East coast of the Island. The infrastructure and facilities are improving but still below standard . Water slide, shallow pool with volleyball net and bars. You are not allowed to bring food into facility but the options from their restaurant and bar is limited and expensive. Restroom and change facilities are below standard and not satisfactory. The tour guides are courteous and the falls is amazingly fun!

    First time coming here since it was closed last year when I tried to come! It's about $600 JM for locals or $12 US and you take a boat to the the little cave and the end and you can jump off the rock into the water! At first it's cold but after you get used to it! It's a beautiful scenery
