St Vincent and the Grenadines
WaterfallsA number of St. Vincent’s most famous landmarks are waterfalls. The rainfall that keeps the island so green also feeds its many cascades. Trinity Falls, about four miles from Richmond and 25 miles from Kingstown, is a three-tiered waterfall set in a deep volcanic canyon. A half-hour walk through rain forest will bring you to the bank of a river beneath the falls. The Wallilabou Falls are located on the leeward side of St. Vincent, approximately fourteen miles from Kingstown. Unlike some other waterfalls on the island, this is a beautifully landscaped site, enhanced by a small picturesque waterfall which forms a natural pool. It’s a favorite bathing spot for locals and visitors alike, especially those who arrive on yachts and anchor at the nearby Wallilabou Anchorage.
There are three separate waterfalls along the banks of the Rabacca River, the Upper Rabacca Falls. The first is a three tiered, gently flowing one with a drop of only ten feet called “Kiss Me.” The second is “Hell’s Gate,” a fast-flowing cascade dropping some thirty feet into a pool below. The third is “The Bedroom,” which flows through a spectacular narrow rock canyon.
