Each of the upper three falls drops approximately 10 ft (3.1 m) in height. The lowest drop measures approximately 40 ft (12.2 m) in height, giving Alamere Falls a total drop of approximately 70 ft (21.3 m). The waterfall is situated on Alamere Creek. The water flows throughout the year. The final drop of Alamere Falls flows directly onto the beach and then flows directly into the Pacific Ocean. During periods of high tide, the flow from the falls will drop directly into the ocean.
