Dark View Falls

St Vincent & the Grenadines

Set among striking mountains covered with lush foliage, this double waterfall is the most beautiful on the island that you don't need a boat to get to. The turnoff is almost at the northern end of the Leeward Hwy, between Chateaubelair and Richmond; look for the small sign on the right after passing the hydroelectric plant. From the turn, it's about a 10-minute drive to the reception area.
