Gorgeous waterfall... once it is raining heavily, you won't be able to swim in the pool. Great for photos though.

We came on a tour with our Cruise Ship, and most of the people who came with us were older, so they came down the path to the pool, snapped a photo or 2 and then made their way back to the vans. The Emerald Pool was my number 1 item on my list of things to do in Dominica, so we decided to stay and enjoy it a bit longer. Within a few minutes, we had the entire place to ourselves. The pool and falls are gorgeous, especially when there's no one else there. Truly an awesome experience, and while our tour group seemed a bit annoyed with us, because we took much longer to come back to the transports than they did, it was totally worth it.

Really quite amazing. This site looks like something straight out of a fantasy movie. A short hike along a well graded trail beside a rushing stream leads to a hidden pool fed by a picturesque waterfall. Steps lead to the edge and you can wade or swim in the cool pool, stand under or walk behind the waterfall. The grotto the pool is in is overhung with jungle vegetation and cuts back into the hillside so you can stand almost in a cave with water cascading down. Take the long way back and there are some great overlooks of the mountains and valleys leading to the sea.

Really not worth the trip except as part of Island tour. Small fall and pool. Nice 15 minute walk to and from falls.

A perfect first hike for any visitor to the island since not only is it easy, but the waterfall is relaxing to swim in or even just look at. The forest canopy reflection off the water makes the entire pool look mystic and mysterious.
