Often described as one of the "Natural Wonders of St. Lucia," Diamond Falls Mineral Baths consists not only of a waterfall and a series of mineral baths, but a botanical garden as well. This natural attractions is set on one of the oldest and well-preserved plantation estates on St. Lucia, which has been transformed from an agricultural producer to a popular tourist attraction.

The mineral baths have been enclosed in a modern looking concrete pool, so do not expect a natural feel. However, the light colors and amenities make the pools very relaxing.

Explore six acres of gardens, waterfalls, and springs at Diamond Falls. The gardens are filled with bright blossoms, including ixora, hibiscus, and heliconia, making it a flourishing tropical paradise. After you tour the gardens, it is time to embark and a nature hike. The trail takes guests from the gardens and through the rainforest where numerous species of birds can be seen swooping in and out of the red cedar and mahogany trees. The trail ends when you arrive at the property's ruins, which includes the 1765 built Old Mill and Waterwheel. After the intense hike, cool off and relax in the Diamond Falls Mineral pools. The water is rich in minerals that can help cleanse and rejuvenate your skin, essentially acting like a natural spa. The waters have such healing properties due to the natural minerals found in the area including quartz, gypsum, kaolinite, geotite, pyrite, and alunite.
