This isn't a huge height waterfall, but is a lovely deep pool - a great place to take a picnic for the day. It is a fair walk up/down a hill unless you have a high ground clearance 4wd. We were also charged $10 EC pp by someone on the trail for trail maintenance - not sure if he was legit or not but it was a great experience

We had the place to ourselves on a Sunday noon outing. The falls and the pool are gorgeous and it was fun to try to swim up to the falls. The water is rushing fast so it was difficult. But fun! We have nice pictures from there.
It’s about a 10 minute walk down to where it sounds like other people expected to start from. We didn’t know any different so didn’t mind. It is downhill and uphill on the return.
The man at the top was very friendly. We bought a coconut after to drink from, which he cut open for us. It was maybe 5EC? It was $10 US to enter.
The road in was a bit scary. I drove for 11 days on the island and that experience was maybe the scariest. We got stuck in the mud, very close to a drop off. I actually made my partner get out of the car (SUV) because I was concerned about going over. And she was so concerned, she took her backpack with her. We did eventually make it out but it was super stressful. Like most roads in Dominica, it’s one car length wide. So I worried the whole time about meeting another vehicle. Not a road I’d want to back up on. That said, I’d go, just cross your fingers it’s not muddy that day and there aren’t cars coming in the other direction.

It's a bit of a walk down the last part of the track to get there but well worth the effort. Once at the pool it's deep enough for jumping in from the rocks and adults and children alike love it. I would definitely recommend a visit here.
Not for those that can't swim and you need to be able to clamber over the rocks to get there.

This was a stunning trip. If you drive a 4WD, you can easily do this yourself without a guide. Follow the signs up to the last sign where you can’t drive further; there’s a little parking spot (for 1 or 2 cars). From there it’s a 10-15 min hike which is already stunning. It’s a little challenging (you have to cross the river), but again you’ll see a sign so easy to find. As long as you don’t have physical challenges, you’ll be fine (we brought our 1,5yr old in a carrier on my husband’s back). The jump into the pool is a little scary but pretty cool. It’s deep, so safe, provided you can swim a bit 😉 There are also plenty of shallow spots to enjoy the wonderfully cool water (it’s so fresh you can drink it!) if you’re not enough of a dare devil (or for the little ones :)). We had the place to ourselves and it was just gorgeous. Recommended!

Take a guide with you as it can be a little hard to find, it is a beautiful location for swimming and jumping of the rocks, we visited in the morning just before lunch and the sun really sets of the location at this time of day

Chaudiere is a hidden-gem far from the cruise ship crowds. It requires a 4-wheel drive to reach the trailhead, but the trail itself is well-maintained by the locals. It requires about thirty minutes of hiking one-way. Chaudiere pool is a very deep pool at the bottom of a short but powerful waterfall. The setting is pristine. We only saw two other people there the entire day. It's perfect for a picnic and swimming in the rainforest. For the bravest in your group, the crystal-clear pool itself is forty feet deep, so you can jump off the tall rocks on either side of the water. There are small pools of water nearby where you can easily sit and let the river flow over you. Absolutely a highlight of Dominica that is beyond the reach of a typical cruise ship visitor.

Accessible with 4x4 and 15 minute hike. A previous reviewer mentioned that the bridge was out however you can still go, you just park at the top and hike down 15 minutes. We used Google maps to get there and followed the many signs pointing you in the right direction. You don’t need a guide. It’s really beautiful. There is a deep area where you can jump into the water and there are shallow areas for less confident swimmers. The water isn’t as cold as middleham falls or titou gorge. It’s nearby batibou bay beach which was the most beautiful beach we saw in Dominica

The bridge was out and we were told to go back to find another trailhead in, which we could not. Very disappointing but it happens.

After a 6.8 km hike of section 13 of the Waitukubuli Trail, this was the perfect place to rest our weary bones. Definitely find a local guide to bring you as it is off the beaten path (try Tom at Wanderlust Caribben). After a short hike down to the river cross a stream to find the pool. The water is great, the waterfall is strong and the jump is breathtaking! Make sure you partake in it all.

Not easy to get to but well worth the trek! Such a beautiful area with some awesome places to jump in... if you are brave enough.
