One of the most beautiful natural landmarks in Saint Vincent is Falls of Baleine.

This waterfall is located in a secluded, remote valley in the north of island. There are no proper roads leading towards it, thus the best way to see Baleine Falls is to wait for calm weather and go there by boat.

Tourists (and local people too) love a day trip to this gorgeous waterfall. When the group stops at the mouth of small stream, falls are nearby - just some 100 m inland.

Falls have formed on a small stream which comes down from a volcano.

Water falls down in a single leap, at the base of falls has formed a basin. Visitors often take a refreshing dip in it.
