Avocat Falls

Ocho Rios, Port Antonio & the North Coast

This lovely, small waterfall, also sometimes known as Fishdone Falls, is a short but winding drive uphill from Charles Town into the coffee country of the Blue Mountains. There's parking by the bridge overlooking the falls, and you clamber over the boulders to a gorgeous green swimming hole.
