Spanny Falls, Dominica

(4.7/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
Take a short hike up to the beautiful waters of Spanny Falls and cool off in the pools in a lush jungle setting. Set on private property, the falls' friendly owner will guide you to the first cascade. If you're feeling brave, haul yourself up the steep slope using the nearby rope to visit the second set of falls. If you can tackle this challenging climb, you'll see a much more impressive waterfall featuring a larger pool for a swim.

  • Spanny falls was easy to find and a short hike. Once you pay the land owners a small fee, they tell you where the path is located. Light traversing of roots and rocks were required and well worth it. ...  more »
  • A short and easy hiking trail with a wonderful goal. Water clear and refreshing. For courage, there is a second small waterfall on the other side. This is however only climbing to reach. Here, a rope is the only way to the hold. . We have not dared.
