Hiking Trail · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Take a short hike up to the beautiful waters of Spanny Falls and cool off in the pools in a lush jungle setting. Set on private property, the falls' friendly owner will guide you to the first cascade. If you're feeling brave, haul yourself up the steep slope using the nearby rope to visit the second set of falls. If you can tackle this challenging climb, you'll see a much more impressive waterfall featuring a larger pool for a swim.

  • Spanny Falls was a fun little hike. We did the extended hike to Penrice Falls and as long as you were appropriate footwear and don't mind using the rope to get up the embankment I suggest going to see it as well. Also stop in and see Linda at the little gift shop! She was the sweetest lady and had a ton of suggestions for things for us to do around the island!
