SVG Attraction Highlight: Dark View Falls
A visit to Dark View Falls’ cascading twin waterfalls promises stunning natural beauty and exhilarating outdoor adventure.
Dark View Falls showcase St. Vincent & The Grenadines’ spectacular unspoiled beauty, with two magnificent waterfalls plunging into pools below.
A narrow bamboo bridge leads you over a tumbling river as you hike to the park’s first waterfall. While the bridge offers railings to hold, you’ll likely feel an adrenaline rush during the crossing. On the other side, you’ll soon be rewarded with spectacular sights and relaxation. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the pool beneath the waterfall.
Then, the second waterfall is just short 10-15 minute climb away. This one is even grander, at 230 feet.

Spend the Afternoon
Set aside a few hours to experience all that the Dark View Falls have to offer, including picnicking in the shady groves and swimming in the freshwater pools.
The drive from Kingstown takes an hour and a half and is well worth the trip. Young Island can arrange the transportation, and your driver will also hike with you, offering a guided tour. (Email the Front Desk to make arrangements.)
The park is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and a small entrance fee is required for entrance.
