With the island so mountainous, many of its rivers, on their journey to these, create spectacular waterfalls and cascades, some of which are accessible by hiking trails or even short paths.
The Emerald Pool, a forest walk along an easy path to a beautiful waterfall and pool, is known for its characteristic emerald hue and how the pool reflects the verdant canopy in its crisp waters.
The twin waterfalls at Trafalgar Falls are known affectionately as ‘father’ and ‘mother’. The father (on the left) has a natural swimming pool a quick boulder scramble away or stay back and take in these magnificent waterfalls from the viewing platform.
One of Dominica’s tallest, Middleham Falls, is an hour hike from the village of Laudat through the lush rainforest and often alive with the call of Jaco parrots. A rock scramble from the viewing platform gets you to the refreshing waterfall pool.
