The Diamond Waterfall got its name from the French under the rule of King Louis XVI who settled in Soufriere in the 16th century. Translated from French, the name was given because of the colourful sparkle of the waterfall, similar to how diamonds refract light into all different colours. For those of you who thought there were actual diamonds, sorry to disappoint you.
The river which feeds the waterfall starts from a boiling sulphur spring at the top of the volcano. It runs down the mountain slope, mixing with fresh water until it pours over a dark rock, 60 feet high, creating what we know as the Diamond Waterfall, now one of St. Lucia's most well-known and characteristic attractions.
