Middleham Falls

Located inside Morne Tios Pitons National Park, this large waterfall is the iconic rain forest waterfall; complete with lush trees, moss covered rocks, and the rumble of water pounding into a pool, creating a thick spray of mist. The exotic waterfall is only part of the sight to see, as the journey to it will bring you past old coffee plantations as well as a collapsed lava tube; a geological wonder that may have helped create the island itself.

Middleham Falls is a waterfall three-hundred feet high. The sheer mass of the falling water creates a shroud of mist around the base, adding to the intrigue. Luckily, the pool the water fills is relatively large, so the mist does not hamper any adventurous spirits that wish to jump in and swim around the falls, just be careful as the edges of the pool are lined with large rocks.
