Emerald Pool & Trafalgar Falls Water Adventure

2 reviews
Guests will depart from Roseau to the Emerald Pool driving through Canefield arriving at the Emerald Pool. This wonderful waterfall grotto is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Morne Trois Piton National Park. An easy 30-minute hike takes the guests through magnificent overhanging trees and lush vegetation to the pool, which appears green in the tree-filtered sunlight. Guests will be able to go for a dip, and swim right up to the waterfall!<br><br>On the way back there are two view points where the Atlantic Coast and Morne Laurent can be seen to the left, rising to an elevation of 2,248 ft. Breathtaking! <br><br>Following the visit of the Emerald Pool, guests will go to the Trafalgar Falls. It is a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path from the Visitor Reception centre, where you can photograph both falls from a viewing platform. The more daring can continue on to swim in the refreshing waters of the smaller waterfall or find the hot springs at the tallest falls.

First let me say what a safe and honest island Dominica is so don’t worry about being ripped off. People are very nice. Mero beach is about 25 min from cruise ship. Chairs and umbrellas are $5 each and someone will set it up for you. There is food etc but they do run out so eat before noon. They had chicken and fish ($5) but as I said they run out ( I just don’t think they have a lot as the beach wasn’t super busy and I didn’t see lots of people eating). We had fries (okay) and plantains (good) from a little building off to the side. Water was nice but a bit of a slope when you first get in. We would visit again

This is 25 minutes from the cruise port $10 each way by taxi. The beach is a nice size so it doesn't feel crowded. The sand is hot bring sand shoes. There are rental chairs and umbrellas and bars. Water was clear and refreshing.

Visited here independently while on a cruise. Taxi was about $10 US and takes about 25 minutes from the pier. There are facilities here for food, drink and changing as well as various vendors for massages, crafts, etc. The day we were there the sea was rather rough and while it was a steep beach waves were still washing up over the berm. The beach is a black sand beach as the island is largely volcanic.

Mero beach is very pretty, especially for sunset, but as one of the few beaches on the island that are (kind of) white sand, it's much more touristed than some of the other locations, and cruise ship groups tend to go here. Expect a less "Dominican" feel and a bit more like you can be anywhere in the Caribbean. Recommend as a sunset stop when heading back from exploring.

Weather was perfect to spend the day at this beach. The black sand they say is good for your skin l had heard and l watched a few people scrubbing themselves with and washing it off in the salty sea including myself and my skin felt lovely and smooth. There are areas to have food including fried chicken, bakes and plantain and washing it down with a variety of drinks while listening to music. Sun loungers are available while you catch the sun and watch the sunset. This is a beach which is nice for all the family
