Diamond Falls - St Lucia

Diamond Falls – St Lucia

 

Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens is located less than a mile east of Soufriere town center on the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia. The Diamond Waterfall is arguably the most colorful waterfall in the Caribbean.  What makes it so colorful is the water is laced with minerals: sulphur, copper sulphate, magnesium, iron, manganese and calcium, all which contribute to the kaleidoscope of colors that are on the rock face behind the falls. The rock face continues to change color depending on the mineral content at any given point in time. This beautiful waterfall is approximately 56 feet in height. The falls is surrounded by a a well maintained six acre botanical garden with a diverse range of tropical flowers and plant life.
