Reach Falls

Reach falls is east of Port Antonio, near to Manchioneal, it’s also Jamaica’s finest water cascade. Nestled in the hills of Portland, the easternmost parish, Reach falls is another reason why so many visitors keep returning to Jamaica. Reach Falls is unspoiled in every aspect. The water source originates less than a mile further up in the Blue and John Crow Mountains. The water touches nothing synthetic before unleashing its full glory at the Reach Falls. 

Reach Falls is impressive because of the cascades that tumble over limestones, also the small caves hidden by water curtains through which any visitor can explore, one such cave has an exit which will come out right above the main waterfall and is very fun, easy and liberating to attempt. Additional to this cave are other pools which have different shades of blue and green, crystal waters, where one can swim safely. The pools are diverse in that some are calm and still, while other have rushing clear waters similar to a bubbling hot tub.

Rio Grande Rafting

Rafting on the Rio Grande affords 2 1/2 hours of complete relaxation enjoying the stillness of the river, and the lush vegetation of the Island. Snuggle back and relax with the expertise of the River Captains. We totally enjoyed our trip with Captain Mark, who has spent many years navigating the waters. Make sure you stop at Belinda Riverside Cafe for lunch half way your journey, and enjoy the convenience of the floating bar that floats long side your raft.

At $95 US per couple it affords you an experience that’s not to be missed.

Blue Lagoon/Monkey Island

Blue Lagoon is located in Port Antonio and is a wildly popular travel destination for families and honeymooners. With glistening, turquoise blue waters surrounded by lush greenery, Blue Lagoon is a vision of beauty. The water seems to have a bit of magic to it, as the color changes throughout the day, depending upon the way the sun shines upon the surface.

When you first arrive, the water can look turquoise but you may notice that during your boat ride, the water changes to a deeper sapphire or even royal blue. If you’ve chosen a great tour guide, he or she will talk about the history of the lagoon, the appearances of the lagoon in movies and the celebrities who have visited. Locals used to believe that the lagoon was bottomless, but it has since been discovered that the depth is somewhere around 180 to 200 feet.

 The lagoon is also part of a legend that claims a dragon resides there.  Rest assured, no giant winged beast will harass you as you enjoy your time here!  The water in Blue Lagoon is a mix of fresh water and salt water, as the lagoon is open to the sea and fed by freshwater springs. If you decide to take a dip in the lagoon, you’ll notice the alternating temperatures (the warmth of the Caribbean Sea and the icy cold waters of the underground streams), which is quite an experience.

Port Antonio

Our Home, Port Antonio, on Jamaica’s eastern coast is nestled between the Blue Mountains and the Caribbean Sea. Port Antonio has preserved its charm as a sleepy fishing village whilst still offering the comfort, variety and adventure of a vacation hideaway

Settled successively by Taino Indians, Spanish, and British, the town was largely developed in the late nineteenth century as a result of the development of the banana trade. With banana boats plying between Jamaica and the United States, visitors began arriving in Port Antonio, launching the beginnings of Jamaica’s tourist trade. Initially, large Victorian hotels were constructed high on the Titchfield Peninsula that separates Port Antonio’s lovely twin harbours. Eventually the rich and famous discovered the delights of the area, with Hollywood swashbuckler Errol Flynn establishing himself on nearby Navy Island and other celebrities building villas along the coastline. Today Port Antonio serves as the market town for the surrounding area as well as boasting a fine new marina servicing the international yachting crowd.

Port Antonio is about 10km away from the Guest House and can be reached by local transportation. Cost one way $150JMD.

Frenchman’s Cove Beach

Frenchman’s Cove beach is a very unique beach located in the parish of Portland, Jamaica.  This place is often referred to as Paradise!  The grounds at the cove spread about 42 acres with villas throughout; however, the actual beach is relatively small.  This is not a problem because this beach is rarely crowded.


 What makes this beach so unique is the amazing river that meets the ocean – such a sight to see!  The sand is soft and white and the water is crystal clear.  You can choose to swim in the very calm river or the ocean.

Once you are done relaxing on the sandy beach, just a few steps away, you are able to rinse off in the pure river water.  Don’t be surprised if you are swimming amongst tiny fish.  Take this time to relax and enjoy being surrounded by the small and secluded jungle.  Kids and adults can enjoy the swing that hangs above the river.

Food and drinks are served here.  You have a selection of Jamaican jerk chicken, steam fish, burgers, fries, rice, etc.  Many agree that the price is reasonable, especially when served with a warm smile.

This place is a great one for photos.  I have taken many photos here and people are always amazed and immediately ask where this gorgeous place is.

There aren’t enough words that can describe the greatness of this place.  Come to Frenchman’s Cove if you simply want to relax and take in your surroundings.  You will not be disappointed!

Entrance: $15 US adults, $6 US kids (4-12)

Chair rentals: $3 US (no need to rent a chair if you have a towel or blanket)
