Rising 90 m (295 ft) above ground level, the waterfall splits the two the rocky sides of the cliff that create the image of a heart. With the path to the waterfall refurbished in 2008, reaching the site involves a stroll through the lush forest. You can bring a picnic basket and take a break on the viewing platform next to the waterfront. Discover how to plan a Jamestown trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • This is Heart Shaped waterfall without water .Water flows only when there is heavy rain which is rare here.  more »
  • When we visited there was no water and therefore nothing to see apart from the rock formation. Some considerable distance from the road, so hard to pick out when there is no water.  more »
  • You can either see the heart shaped rock from the road leading from the airport through Longwood and Alarm Forest down to Jamestown (there's a little viewing gallery on the roadside) or you can yomp.....  more »

  • ABSOLUTELY A FANTASTIC PLACE..... HEART WATER (FALL).. A GOOD ENVIRONMENT NICE PLACE ON EARTH... I LIKE THIS PLACE ❤🍀.... REALLY A NICE PLACE ( ͡°³ ͡°) BECAUSE water fall situated in Hilly Area. GREEN VALLEY PLACE. GOOD ATMOSPHERE.
  • Great place amazing walk a must see
  • Absolutely fantastic hike to the waterfall. Was lucky enough to be here in early spring when the water was flowing with tremendous force. A truly awe inspiring sight! Met a few hikers along the way (Emily and Amanda) who were there on their honeymoon. What a beautiful couple. We ended up sharing a few celebratory drinks near the top of the waterfall which soon turned into a game of truth or dare that none of us will ever forget. Camped there under the stars for the evening as well. Literally the best trip I have ever been on. Not only is the island gorgeous, but the locals, as well as the other folks there on holiday made this the best holiday ever! 10/10

  • In a few thousand years it will be a V shaped water trickle.
