2877 SAINT LUCIA - Diamond Waterfall
Diamond Waterfall is the main attraction of the Diamond Botanical Gardens, the oldest botanical gardens on the island, located in the town of Soufrière. What made this waterfall stand out was that its waters were laced with minerals as its stream emanated from rainwater mixed with volcanism giving the falls a colorful appearance that seemed to change often. It has 17m in height, and the flow of water varies at different times of year but is always spectacular.
