Titou Gorge, Dominica

(4.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Swim between two monumental rock faces, underneath a tumbling waterfall, and into an airy, sparkling cave at Titou Gorge. Formed as molten lava cooled then split apart, the series of naturally formed stone rooms lead you to an opening of hot mineral springs, a welcoming change from the refreshing but chilly water of the fall. The crystal clear waters can be quite deep, but less confident swimmers can hire a life jacket. Consider wearing swim shoes to protect against sharp rocks as you enter the pools. By using our Giraudel trip itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Titou Gorge and other attractions in Giraudel.

  • Super decorates, but find good swimming even if they have mandatory life jackets. A cold freshwater that cheers but a unique places.

  • This was the starting point of the Boiling Lake Hike, we saw a group visiting when we arrived back at the end of our hike, they took a swim and some picture .probably only there for 30 minutes.  more »
  • Water is clearly very fresh but the place is really wonderful and unique: we swim in gorges of about 10 meters high on about 50 meters long, it is very impressive. No need to vest so you can swim. There are booths to change on-site.

  • Great challenge to brave the swim through the narrow gorge against the current..be careful people have lost their lives swimming in that location..
  • River Gorge and Falls were as expected. I didn't find the water that cold, swimming against the current was a challenge. View of falls was limited due to swimmers ability to swim the narrow gorge's current. Overall, one of Dominca's better tourist destinations.
  • So cold but so good!
  • Was great!
  • A warm stream joins the cold flow of a river in a pool at the exit of a narrow gorge with sheer sides of black rock. Swim upstream about 60 metres through the gorge to reach a small but powerful waterfall where you can dive in to a deep pool, with the sunlight filtered through rainforest 10 metres above. If makes a beautiful and refreshing way to end the walk from the boiling lake, or a respite from the afternoon heat if you're in the area.
