The Caribbean is known for its pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters and breathtaking landscapes – including magical waterfalls. For National Waterfall Day, we rounded up some of our favourite waterfalls across the Caribbean that provide the perfect backdrop for your destination wedding photos or a scenic excursion for your wedding party.
Diamond Falls, Saint Lucia
Known for its breathtaking volcanic landscapes and the world-famous Pitons, Saint Lucia is a lush island that’s perfect for a romantic honeymoon or destination wedding. Diamond Falls is a hidden gem surrounded by botanical gardens and six acres of lush flora and fauna. You’ll have to hike along a trail to get to the falls, so we recommend taking some pre or post-wedding photos in everyday clothes at this tropical locale.
Salto de Aguas Blancas, Dominican Republic
When many think of the Dominican Republic, visions of pristine shores and soft white sand come to mind. But did you know that the Dominican Republic is also home to one of the tallest waterfalls in the Caribbean? Salto de Aguas Blancas is located outside of Constanza, a few hours south of Puerto Plata, and is a must-see.
Emerald Pool Falls, Dominica
For the off-the-beaten-path couple, Dominica offers a Caribbean experience unlike any other. Nicknamed the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean”, it’s known for its exotic environment, natural hot springs and tropical rainforests. Emerald Pool Falls is just one of the country’s many waterfalls and tumbles over 40 feet in the heart of Dominica. Boasting an emerald-green pool, it’s perfect for a swim to cool off from the humid days.
Trafalgar Falls, Dominica
Another must-see waterfall in Dominica, Trafalgar Falls boasts two spectacular waterfalls, nicknamed Mother and Father. Located just a short 20-minute drive from the capital city of Roseau and a 10-15-minute hike from the main road, these waterfalls make the perfect day trip just a short drive from your hotel or resort.
YS Falls, Jamaica
YS Falls is made up of seven rushing cascades with natural pools. Located in the southern parish of Saint Elizabeth, it’s one of the area’s most popular attractions and is easily accessible from most major resort areas on the island.
Dunn’s River Falls, Jamaica
Located in the popular resort area of Ocho Rios, Dunn’s River Falls lives up to its reputation as one of the Caribbean’s most popular waterfalls. The natural attraction is over 180 feet high and 600 feet long, with its rushing cascades forming a natural staircase. The location is easily accessible, making it a great choice for your destination wedding photos.
Concord Falls, Grenada
With over 40 white sand beaches and 15 breathtaking waterfalls, Grenada is a top destination for beach lovers and adventure seekers alike. Concord Falls is located on the west coast of Grenada and is a part of a series of three waterfalls. Concord Falls is the only waterfall that you don’t need to hike to, making it a prime choice for a photo op. Afterwards, you can take a dip in the refreshing pool at the bottom of the waterfall and soak in the breathtaking views of the surrounding rainforest.
