  • A beautiful falls leading to a river. You can view both from the walkway at the turnout. It is a quick stop for a beautiful sight.  more »
  • Super short and easy drive to the falls. Good to do on way from or to airport. Good parking lot and can walk across road to check out the river.  more »
  • Easy 2 mile drive, OK parking and fine photo opportunities. Make sure you cross road, at crosswalk, to see river views.  more »

  • 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.
