Perhaps our favorite waterfall we visited. Short walk down and back, entrance not very well marked but several mens were standing directing because they wanted you to pay them to be your guide. We did not use a guide, path is very well marked once you pay at the entrance. There was 1 group of 5 when we got there, once they left we had the falls to ourselves for at least 39 mins until the next group arrived. Nice little swim.

This is definitely worth a stop – the waterfalls were spectacular (the tallest in Grenada!) to see, it was not overrun with tourists and very peaceful. There are no signs but it is at an intersection where you will see a security guard and locals available to wash your shoes after the walk. It was a 15-20 minute walk each way – while not a tough hike, we went after there was a lot of rain and it was very muddy, very slippery and two of the hills a bit difficult to navigate without slipping and falling. The water is COLD and it is pretty rocky so not super swimmable. This is definitely worth the stop and small entrance fee to visit!

The lower & upper falls both have very nice swimming pools so wear some swimwear. Its a small hike but not extreme at all. There are a couple food vendors at the switchback corner where you park & walk in. The sign is the entrance. Just looks like a house but there is a trail between. Entrance fee is $5ecd NO Guide Required for this trail...

Totally worth a visit. We had the waterfall to ourselves. Just a couple of dollars to get in. Take wet shoes

We saw several waterfalls while were in Grenada (just got back last night) and we liked this one so much we planned a whole day there. We only saw 2 other groups the whole time we were there and it was great to string our hammock near the creek and relax. There's lots of spots between the falls to lay back and let the water run over you or there's a shelf by the lower fall that you can sit on and let the water pound on your shoulders.

There's a $5EC charge per person to get in but compared to charges at other places definitely the best bang for your buck!

The start of the path is hidden between some houses so not easy to find, but if you ask thensomeone will point it out to you. There is a short (15 minute?) pleasant walk through the rainforest to get to the falls.

I thought the falls were pretty impressive - much larger than I had expected, and the area around them was really pretty. It would be a great spot to take a picnic and have a barbecue whilst cooling off in the pool at the bottom.

About a 10 minute walk (or longer if you want) along a very natural (ie, nothing man-made looking) winding path down to the falls. Our guide was great and we tipped him $20 USD: I'd suggest a guide if you want to go swimming or stand under the big fall. Only passed one other group of tourists. My friend who I was with has been to several other waterfalls on the island over the years and had never been to this one, hence why we chose it. It was her favorite due to how "natural" everything was, no concrete or man-made items, quiet, not many otheTheTHer visitors. I would highly encourage anybody (if they're physically able) to let your guide show you the small distance swim and then climb to get under the big falls. I also highly encourage swimming in the lower falls. More area for swimming. Water was cold but in a very refreshing way (and I am super cold natured so this surprised me). There is a small entrance fee and then the tip for the guide. I would recommend tevas or geckos, etc if you plan on swimming or climbing rocks to get under the big fall just so that you won't get your socks all wet or half to walk barefoot on the trail between the two falls afterwards (like I did because I just wore running shoes and socks). We also had a 2 yo with us and each one of us took turns watching him while the other was swimming: he really enjoyed playing with the small rocks, etc.

This is my favourite waterfall in Grenada. It is a beautiful, tranquil place without the hullabaloo that ruins some of the other waterfalls on the island.

Mt Carmel is a bit of a drive from the west coast but it is worth the trouble. And the actual hike is very short and easy, no guide needed. However, if you want to hike up to the top of the waterfall or slide down the rocks on the lower falls, it is best to go with a guide who knows what they are doing. Plenty of eager guides are available at the entrance to the falls.

Check out my blog post on Hopping Around the Globe in Style for more details on visiting Mt Carmel Falls.

Came to Mount Carmel with my friend who is new to hiking. Our guide escorted us to the falls giving my friend instructions how to navigate the hills. He was super friendly. The falls were super beautiful! We didn’t stay to swim but the swimming spot looks fun! So happy we came to see the falls!

This one has easy access - 5 to 10 minutes walk on a simple trail (you don't need a guide - although at entrance there are guys offering you this service).
Once there, you can enjoy quite an unusual view. Unlike most falls, this one is very wide, a straight rock block with water pouting over its top. Quite picturesque, and quite easy. and you can have a swim in pool under it.

A word of caution - on a rainy day path gets muddy and slippery, keep it in mind.
