Argyle Waterfall, Scarborough

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.

  • A beautiful corner of the country. The hike takes about 20 minutes to go and 20 minutes back. The guide knows very well his environment. The water flowing from the mountains was less than in the picture. We were at the end of the dry season, but we were able to bathe and freshen up.

  • Walkable rough road to pool; steep more challenging climb to the top for the more experienced hiker. Bring good walking shoes or sandals and swimsuit. Plan a picnic lunch  more »
  • Welcoming staff and knowledgeable tour guides. Amazing products on sale. Got some natural Cocoa balls and Organic Herbal Soap that helped my youngest son with his eczema.
  • Beautiful natural waterfall, a visitor should visit this palace at least once. Try not to go when there is rain fall as it may be slippery on the rocks
