Argyle Waterfall, Scarborough

Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
Cool off under Argyle Waterfall, Tobago's highest cataract. The water drops 54 m (175 ft) down three separate tiers of the cliff face, in an area of lush green foliage. Park at the visitor center and make the 20-minute trek to the fall. The clearly signposted route takes you through an attractive wooded area, and you'll hear the rush of the water before you reach it. Explore the three tiers of the waterfall, cooling off in each pool as you go. The bottom pool--the smallest and deepest--provides the best place for swimming.

  • This place was truly awesome. I recommend wearing sneakers because you have to walk approximately a 1/2 mile to get to the falls. There are rocks and as you get closer to the Falls the adventure truly begins as you have to navigate over and through the rocks to get to the Falls. Once you reach the Falls Mother nature reveals her beauty. She shows you that all the walking was well worth it. If you like adventure I recommend climbing the Falls. There is a pool in the middle of the Falls you can enjoy as the water cools you down from the walk. Absolutely beautiful!!
  • Breathtaking view of the 3 waterfalls and hikes to each is not difficult, $50 to $60. Tour guides are very kind people. Pool is 18ft deep, the highest on is great to go under the waterfall and relax. The deep pool is great for swimming. Can stay as long as u like till 5pm after the tour guide escort u. Secure parking . There is a bar as well
