You’ll want to visit a few of those local landmarks. The Falls of Baleine are one of St. Vincent’s most popular attractions. It is a single stage waterfall plunging sixty feet into a fresh water pool, perfect for swimming. There is a gazebo for picnickers and a concrete walkway with steps leading to a viewing bridge. Getting there is half the fun with these falls—access is only by boat, taking approximately forty minutes from Kingstown up the Leeward Coast.

Dark View Falls is actually an unusual set of two falls, located about three miles from Richmond. The lower falls is a single stage waterfall of some 104 feet, slightly higher than the Falls of Baleine. The pool at the bottom is about two feet deep and you can stand beneath the cascade and enjoy a giant shower. A short trail leads from the lower falls to the upper one.
