This waterfall is located in the beautiful Diamond Botanical Gardens. This garden is owned by Devaux family, who received this land as a grant presented by King louis XIV in 1713.

Fine pathways lead through the collections of rainforest flowers towards an unusual sight - tall cliff with bright colored waterfall falling over it. At the base of waterfall is small pool which is filled with ash-gray water.

The waterfall stream comes from geothermal area - Soufrière sulphur springs, which is located some 1.4 km upstreams. Water in this stream is still warm, rich with sulphur and other minerals and as a result the cliff along the waterfall is laced with colourful - yellow, green purple sediments. These colors are constantly changing.
