"Trafalgar Falls" Dominica Things to Do Tip by Pieter11
Dominica Things to Do: 87 reviews and 211 photos
Absolutely the most spectacular site I've been to on Dominica are the Trafalgar Falls. At a 40-minutes from Roseau, high in the Dominican mountains, you'll find these twin-falls in a lush, tropical forest. And as if the beautiful sight of the falls is not enough, these are some natural hot springs with wonderfully warm water too!
When you arrive at the visitors centre it is only a short walk to the viewpoint from where you have a nice view of the falls. A satisfying view you would say, but when you go further down from here, past the "at own risk" sign, the beauty opens up even further. After a few minutes of descending you arrive at a small stream where the water is yellow. These are the natural hot springs. Pay attention when getting in (the rocks are slippery) and enjoy the wonderful water of this natural jacuzzi!
And go a little bit further and you'll end up at the river at the base of the waterfalls. Here the water is much, much colder, but the views are fantastic! View of the Falls, and views of the valley down below.
At the visitors station they will offer you a guide for the walk to and around the Falls, but I don't think that is necessary. The path of pretty clear and not too difficult to walk, so you'd better keep that money in your pocket...
Address: Trafalgar Falls, Dominica, BWI
Directions: Trafalgar Falls is covered by minibus with a direct connection. Only on "cruiseship-days" these busses might be full later in the morning, so depart early
