The world famous Dunns River Falls is located in the tourist town of Ocho Rios. The entrance to the attraction is location off the Ocho Rios Main road and is easily identified.
The picturesque beachfront of the Dunns River beach is just one of this site’s many attractions. There is a small freshwater stream which enters the beach just east of the westernmost lifeguard stand, creating small trenches. White soft sand characterizes this location and is approximately 214 metres in length. A small wading pool was constructed to channel the water and incorporate it as part of the attraction. However, this has been destroyed overtime by wave action. Generally, the land has good drainage and the beach area does not see any ponding. There is evidence of erosion. Vegetation includes Almond, Breadfruit, Seaside Mahoe, Sea Grape, Red Birch, Spanish Elm, Coconut, Fan Palm and Green Button Wood.
