Off the Beaten Track - Trinity Falls
Duration: Half Day
The beautiful Caribbean islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines are blessed with a wealth of natural treasures, including pristine white sandy beaches, tropical rainforests, active volcanoes and spectacular waterfalls. Visitors can embark on some truly unforgettable hikes across the islands, which will reward you with spectacular scenery and some wonderful hidden gems. This tour will take you on an exhilarating trek to Trinity Falls on St Vincent, where you can immerse yourself in nature amidst beautiful surroundings.
Venturing off the beaten track on foot during your holiday in St Vincent and the Grenadines is a wonderful way to view the islands’ highlights. One of St Vincent’s most popular natural attractions is Trinity Falls, which can be accessed from a walking trail close to Richmond Beach on the Leeward coast. Set in a deep volcanic canyon, it is regarded as the most beautiful waterfall on the island. From the trailhead, the 45-minute hike will lead you along a picturesque forest trail, through lush rainforest and small streams to the top of a ridge.
From here, a steep descent will take you down into a gorge where you are met by the fast-flowing Wallilabou River and the breathtaking Trinity Falls, set against a magnificent background of lush green tropical foliage and dramatic rock boulders. This powerful, 40ft waterfall cascades as three falls (hence the name Trinity) from the canyon above, plummeting into a wide river basin on the way before falling a further 10ft into a natural whirlpool below. Taking a refreshing swim in these clear emerald green waters is one of the highlights of the tour as it will feel like you are bathing in a huge, natural bubbling jacuzzi.
Wallilabou River is one of the warmest and cleanest rivers in St. Vincent, although the force of the currents should not be underestimated, especially in the wet season. If you don’t feel like swimming, you may just choose to relax and admire the paradise surroundings instead. Listening to the sounds of the jungle and the soothing rush of the falls will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated, ready for the trek back to base.
During the hike, your experienced local guide will point out a variety of endemic flora and fauna living in the rainforest. Exotic birds, lizards, insects and monkeys can be spotted here, as well as an abundance of palms, bamboo, ferns and other tropical trees and plants. Not to be missed, Trinity Falls is one of St Vincent’s most spectacular natural wonders.

Tourism officials have stated that St Vincent and the Grenadines are very much "open for business" following the recent storm over the festive period that saw the islands take a battering by wind and heavy rain.
