Mt. Carmel Waterfall

This privately owned waterfall is the largest on the island, and is not a sight to be missed by any person who enjoys the awe-inspiring sights. A steep cliff and misting white waters surrounded by tropical vegetation beckons any nearby with its constant low rumbling.

This is a remarkable sight. Surrounded by dense vegetation, the waterfall is hidden as you approach, though you can hear it before you see it. Finally, between the trees you a met with a 70 foot tall rock wall jutting up, and from it, an equally tall stream of mist white water is falling. The sight is both humbling and relaxing as you sit by the falls surrounded by a paradise of local spice and fruit plants.

Located between Grenville and Plaisance on the Eastern side of the island, the waterfall is located halfway off the road coming out of Plaisance and that connects to Mountain Fan. Expect some hiking, however nothing too technical, as the trails a kept up by the land owners.
