It's a quick trek from where the bus drops you, and a very easy and peaceful walk to the falls. Definitely must see

It was less than 10 minutes to get to the end of the path, and then some challenging rock climbing to get to the big falls. The swim in the waterfall was some of the most fun we had on the whole island.

As many waterfalls I have been to, they are always amazing. This one was part of a motor coach tour. Quite a walk from the main building, but not tiring. Once we reached the falls our tour guide took us to the river from the fall, surprisingly the water was quite cold for such a warm island. Lots of flora... More

I had the absolute best time at Trafalgar Falls. The hike to the falls is very short and there is an observation deck if you can't travel any further. We met a local who is a former guide and now he just talks to tourists and plays some instrument for entertainment. He was very nice. There are a couple of... More

This is a very special place. A somewhat steep walk down to the falls and hot springs, but you definitely don't have to be a hiker to do it. Wear water sandals or sneakers that can go in water - it's slippery! As with most waterfall hikes on Dominica, plan to wear a swimsuit under your clothes and then spend... More

To call Trafalgar Falls a 'hike' would be a major overstatement. The walk to reach the vista is around 10 minutes; a leisurely stroll with a major jackpot at the end. The twin falls were a beautiful intro to Dominica for us. This was our first stop, so we purchased the multi-day, multi-site pass for our stay, knowing that we'd... More
