Reggae Falls

Kingston, Blue Mountains & the Southeast Coast

These artificial falls, created by the Hillside Dam, make an attractive swimming hole. Drive from Morant Bay through Seafort to get here, then walk along the river by the Morant River bridge. It's great with a group of friends, but better not to visit alone as it's a long way from anywhere.
