Had a wonderful time at Trafalgar. The view from the lookout is gorgeous but you need to head down to the base of the falls and enjoy the hot pools. Make sure to wear a bathing suit so you can enjoy the hot pools - probably as warm as a hot tub. There are cold water pools as well so... More

We went here as the second part of a day of waterfall viewing in Dominica. After the steep drive up to the parking lot, it's an easy stroll (with a few stairs) to the viewing platform which gives a nice view of both falls. Continuing down the path, you can scanner over a few large boulders to get an even... More

This experience is started by a hike in the rainforest, going up some hills and around paths of the mountain until you reach the falls. Included is a portion that brings you to volcanic pool where you can sit in the water and experience the warm heated water. There are a few interesting little spots on the trail which also... More

Trafalgar Falls are stunning. They are beautiful and intriguing. I saw them at dusk as the sun was setting and had to do a quick hike up the hill to hear and see them in their beauty. Its definitely a must see if you're close by!

We had been scuba diving for 6 days and wanted to enjoy some of the land sites during our final afternoon on Dominica so we hired a driver to take around the island. We didn't have enough time to hike Boiling Lake so we opted for the easier Trafalgar Falls, which requires a mild hike through jungle trails to an... More

This waterfall was one of my favourites on the island! My wife and I spent three weeks on Dominica and this was one of our highlights! If at all possible, I would recommend going here when there are no cruise ships in harbour. We were able to visit when there were very few other visitors. There is a walkway down... More

Very nice scenic waterfalls. A brief short walk from the parking lot. A walk for most people will be able to do easily.

This was a great attraction for me because I love the rain forests and natural wonders. The Emerald Pool and Trafalgar Falls were lovely and a good photo op. Be advised however, that the climb through the rain forest and up rough rocky steps and paths is not for the faint-hearted or anyone with mobility issues. It is a strenuous... More

Trafalagar Falls was a bit overwhelming. There was so many people and it was difficult to maneuver the pathways and stairs. Finally we made it to the top and were rewarded with the natural hot springs. The area was a bit slippery, so I'd pay extra caution. It was nice and relaxing to soak up the natural hot springs water.... More
