Roaring River is located just a few miles Northeast of Savanna La Mar in the little village of Shrewsbury.
Shrewsbury was one of the 24 estates owned by Peter Beckford, a horse trader who arrived in 1660
and broke his neck some 50 years later when he intervened in a riot in the Jamaica House of Assembly.

There are two sources of the Roaring River.
One source of water gushes from and old aqueduct while the other is a Blue Hole
where the upwelling of water flows down to meet the other source in a confluence at a 300-year-old Cottonwood tree.
Part of the subterranean flow of this river passes through Karst limestone caverns
snaking through a rock formation across the river from that tree.
A footpath ascends up this rock outcropping to a locked iron gate at the top of the path.
Residents guides of the area have the key and provide guided tours.

The cathedral-like caverns are quite large with a small amount of electrical light place conveniently out of sight providing a wonderful ambiance.
Smaller pools and caverns branch off along the way requiring a small bit of stooping to avoid the overhanging formations.
Be sure to bring a bathing suit and a towel, as the water is very clean and loaded with healing minerals.
Your guide points out, with his flashlight, shapes and textures in the walls and on the ceiling that through suggestion
become recognizable animals and people.

Many upgraes to the property include a new ticket booth, craft area, restaurant, and washrooms (all under constuctions early 2015).
This is a nature lovers paradise where you'll hear the sounds of the river, you may see goats and will of course hear & see many birds.
There is also an area in the river where you can go for a dip to cool off or swim.
