  • If you’re close by it’s definitely worth a stop. It’s not as far away as some of the other reviews were making it sound, but it’s definitely not close up. There’s a short walk across the street that lets you view the river and greenery. Really pretty!
  • Two nice lookouts plus a restroom with flush toilets. No trail.
  • Beautiful and not far from the main attractions of the island.
  • Easy to reach by driving, no hiking required. We visited this spot the day after a huge rain so the water fall was flowing very strong but it was all brown from the wash up of the rain. Still very beautiful. A definite must see especially since it's so easy to get to.
  • It's far away, and harder to see than other waterfalls, but it's beauty makes it worth the trip.
