Emerald Pool Nature Trail, Morne Trois Pitons National Park

#1 of 8 in Trails in Dominica
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.

  • if you come by yes - but the waterfall is not worth seeing. You walk about 5 min and then about 100 steps to the "Emerald" pool. The waterfall was not very impressive (and I was there when it rained for days - so water in abundance).

  • Emerald Pool is easy to find and has a very good established path with numerous steps to get to the very pretty pool which you can swim in, perfectly refreshing after a walk or to escape the humidity....  more »
  • Nice 12 min walk through some tropical forest parts will bring you to the waterfall and the pool below it. When we visited it, it was raining, thus, colours were not as in the booklet but just muddy.
  • Great and easy little walk to this beautiful waterfall and pool. Went for a swim and it was so refreshing. A must see of the island!
