Milford Falls

This lesser known and smaller waterfall is located not far from Shaw Gardens. It is a good place to escape the crowds while getting a little wet.

This waterfall is not a tourist center like many of the other waterfalls in Jamaica and as such is is densely forested. The waterfall itself is not much taller than a person, but you can walk through it to the other side, as the rock wall creates a small overhang. This rocky, vine covered, and secret waterfall may not be large, but it is a true natural attraction for those who have visited the other built-up waterfalls.


Milford Falls is situated in the western outskirts of Ocho Rios.

You will have to ask a local or a tour guiode agency for help finding this waterfall. While it is not far from the Ocho Rios city center it is undeveloped and very much a secret.
