Emerald Pool Nature Trail, Morne Trois Pitons National Park

4.4
#2 of 8 in Trails in Dominica
Take the Emerald Pool Nature Trail through the thick, wild rainforest to reach a shimmering rock pool at the base of a cascading waterfall. The pool sparkles emerald green in color while surrounded by overhanging trees, lush vegetation, and mountain views. The waterfall stands 12 m (40 ft) high, and the pool is more than deep enough for a swim, so bring your bathing suit. To reach the waterfall, you'll take an easy, 30-minute hike from the main road. The spot offers a relaxing ambience and is a quiet spot most of the time, except when cruise ships visit.

  • The water is so cold but the experience is great. The rain forest is amazing, the vegetation is so green, so its a perfect getaway on the hot days
  • Water is cold but I loved the experience of the natural views
  • The scenery is beautiful, the trail to the pool and waterfall is short and easy. You must visit whenever in Dominica.
  • Great outing. The pool is refreshing. The path to the pool is well maintained. If you want the pool to yourself go when there isn't cruise ship on island.
  • It was an amazing experience. There was a great hike up to the pool which looked incredible. Going under the water fall was like getting an intense message.
