Trafalgar Falls And Emerald Pool

Overview



Don't miss this opportunity to swim in a waterfall!

The rivers flow through the mountainous interior, forming these gorgeous waterfalls and clean natural pools. Most of the locals prefer to swim in these rather than in the ocean, and you'll want to give them a try--especially on a warm day.

Your expert guide will transport you on an inland road to Trafalgar Falls. Along the way, you'll have the good fortune to pass through the Botanical Gardens, a 40-acre garden located on the site of a former sugar cane field. It thrives on about 85 inches of rain per year and you'll find it very lush. For the same reason, you'll appreciate your ride through the Roseau Valley.

Upon arrival at Trafalgar Falls, you'll embark on a short 15-minute walk to the viewing area of these spectacular twin waterfalls. Under the supervision of a guide, the more adventurous of you can climb over the boulders to the base of one of the falls, where there is a great natural pool for swimming.

After this incredible experience, you'll hop back into your transport and head to the Emerald Pool, where another easy-access dipping pool is located. Here, you'll also see one of the island's most beautiful waterfalls within Morne Trois Piton National Park. Once again, you'll experience a short walk with explanations of the foliage and wildlife. You'll have time for a refreshing swim before returning to the starting point of the tour.
