Closed for good right now. But Reach Falls is amazing. Make sure to take the guided tour while at the falls, above and below. We hired a guy on the way driving up the to the falls and got a private tour through the below area. Amazing. Wading, swimming, jumping off falls, exploring, with the rainforest canopy above. Truly a... More

A must do in Jamaica. After walking your way up to the waterfall area there is a boat that brought the 2 of us upto and through the falls. It is breathtaking. You get out of the boat and climb onto a giant rock and the water falls onto you as you stand in the falls you can dive off... More

We went when it only partially opened (new owners doing renovations)... It was absolutely a great time. The heavy rains made the current strong - which only added to our thrills. I hope to go back again when it is fully opened.

Greeted with a warm smile, we were welcomed with open arms at Somerset Falls. Closed for over two years, the garden looked better than ever. They have the best staff, the largest swimming pool and the only garden with a water slide. Somerset is the vacation spot in Portland Jamaica :)

An out of the way falls but worth going out of the way to visit. Traveling to the falls gave you a beautiful view of the other side of Jamaica. You get to see beauty of the rolling hills, the beautiful homes and yes some not so beautiful homes, the warmth of the people and the fresh fruits on the... More

We tried to visit Somerset Falls but sadly it was closed for refurbishment, it is in a beautiful spot of jungle and woodlands and will be great to see once it has completed it's refurbishment so do check it's open when you plan to go!

The grounds are under construction (and technically closed) but we were still allowed to visit. We had the opportunity to meet the 2 men overseeing the changes and learned so much about the history of the falls and their vision. While I cannot rate the official facilities due to construction, the falls are just magnificent! Absolutely worth the visit!

I love many of the waterfalls in Jamaica and Somerset is my favourite. We have been there at least 4 times. It is located in the lush parish of Portland and is very small compared to say Dunn's River. The water is a bit chilly and if you like you can get a nice massage from the heavy water pressure....
