Emerald Pool Nature Trail, Morne Trois Pitons National Park

4.3
#2 of 9 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.

  • After a short walk in the national park you can go in the water and stand under the waterfall. Also to do with small kids.  more »
  • After the hurricane Maria the fall is lower almost about 5 meters and also the surrounding forest was very heavily damaged so the place is not so magical any more.  more »
  • Nice walk through the forest (partially redeveloped since the hurricane Maria) before arriving at a waterfall and a fresh pool of blue/green/brown color.

  • 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 a cruise ship on island. The pool is still worth a visit even if you get to go on a cruise day. This natural attraction is absolutely breathtaking.
  • 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
  • Beautiful and very relaxing place in Dominica highly recommended
  • 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.
