Arethusa Falls is a waterfall in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the United States. The waterfall occurs when the headwaters of Bemis Brook tumble over a granite cliff on the western slope of Crawford Notch. They are sometimes erroneously referred to as the tallest waterfalls in New Hampshire, but they are in fact the second tallest, after the Mahoosuc Range's seasonal Dryad Falls.

Arethusa Falls was discovered by Edward Tuckerman in 1875. It was named after the nymph Arethusa, daughter of Nereus. At the time, the falls were measured to be 176 feet (54 m) tall, but the Appalachian Mountain Club now estimates the height at 140 feet (43 m).
