Introducing Trafalgar Falls

Your camera will have a love affair with these misty twin waterfalls, whose easy access puts them on the must-see list of just about every visitor to Dominica. If you don’t like crowds, come before 10am or after 4pm.

An easy 0.4-mile trail (lots of steps, though) leads to a viewing platform. Water from the upper falls crosses the Titou Gorge before plunging down the sheer 200ft rock face and feeding the hydro-electric plant downhill. The lower falls flow from the Trois Pitons River in the Boiling Lake area.

Following the narrow, rocky trail beyond the platform means negotiating slippery moss-covered boulders, so wear sturdy shoes and watch your step. As a reward, you can cool off in shallow river pools or loll in the warm sulfur springs below the taller fall.
