Emerald Pool Nature Trail, Morne Trois Pitons National Park

#1 of 6 in Trails in Dominica
Hiking Trail · Waterfall
Take the Emerald Pool Nature Trail through the thick, wild rainforest to reach a shimmering rock pool at the base of a cascading waterfall. The pool sparkles emerald green in color while surrounded by overhanging trees, lush vegetation, and mountain views. The waterfall stands 12 m (40 ft) high, and the pool is more than deep enough for a swim, so bring your bathing suit. To reach the waterfall, you'll take an easy, 30-minute hike from the main road. The spot offers a relaxing ambience and is a quiet spot most of the time, except when cruise ships visit.

  • It’s gorgeous. The hike in the forest beforehand is also very breathtaking. It’s a hidden gem in Dominica but still remains my favorite place.  more »
  • I think it was $5USD to get in, the "hike" is very easy along a path with some steps (some were a little slippy). Our guide gave us the best advice... get there early to beat any crowds. I don't....  more »
  • Great outing. The pool is refreshing. The path to the pool is well maintained. If you want the pool to yourself go when there isn't a cruise ship on island. The pool is still worth a visit even if you get to go on a cruise day. This natural attraction is absolutely breathtaking. The emerald pool has a new viewpoint constructed near the pool.
  • Very cool little spot for a quick swim. Lots of people came on the tour which kinda takes away from the moment but definitely a must see.. the water is cold but refreshing! There's some steps getting to and from so not accessible for everyone.
