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.


Positioned on the island of Tobago, 3.4 miles north of downtown Scarborough, Highland Waterfall welcomes guests rooming on this part of the island or nearby. Even if you aren't staying very close, you should feel free to stop by for some fun in the sun. 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

There are many eateries to pick from in the community surrounding this waterfall. Cuffie River Nature Retreat Restaurant, which offers Caribbean fare, is very close-by, making it a great option for waterfall visitors. The restaurant is a brief ways off, but distant enough that you will probably decide to arrange for using a mode of transportation to visit there. B'S Ice Cream Tobago and Blue Crab Restaurant & Bar offer additional dining options close-by where travelers will have the chance to enjoy the local cuisine on Trinidad and Tobago.
