Highland Waterfall

Located just outside of Plymouth and Arnose Vale, Highland Waterfall is the tallest on the island, yet one of the least visited. This is great for experienced hikers looking for a spot to call their own.


Located on the island of Tobago, 3.4 miles north of downtown Scarborough, Highland Waterfall welcomes residents and tourists who are lodging on this part of the island or close by. Even if you are not staying very close, you should feel free to stop by to check it out. It is 3.2 miles north-northeast of Scarborough.

To get to Highland, take the road just passed the Les Coteaux Health Center down to the river, and park your vehicle by the ridge. From there, follow the rail along the river for about 15 minutes where you will cross the river to the left side. After another 15 minute trail walk you will reach the falls.

Nearby Restaurants

Of course, one of the most enjoyable options while spending an afternoon exploring the area could be having food at a restaurant within traveling distance of the waterfall. Cuffie River Nature Retreat Restaurant, which serves Caribbean food, is very close-by, making it a great option for waterfall visitors. The eatery is a slight ways away, but far-removed enough that you might decide to make arrangements for taking advantage of some mode of transportation to get there. Also nearby, you and your companions will encounter eateries like B'S Ice Cream Tobago and Blue Crab Restaurant & Bar so with any luck, at least one of these close by restaurants will delight the whole group.
