For travellers from overseas this is just a lake that we can see anytime in our countries! The information center by the lake was quite interesting and was worthwhile taking a look at!

Went here to have a look . It was misty and everything was closed if you are going you need to make sure it is open or take a boat or go on a hike nearby.

We walked around Freshwater Lake on a drizzly afternoon. That may have been a not so great idea as some areas along the trail were extremely slippery mud and very steep. We just laughed about getting all muddy though and had a fantastic time anyhow! Part of the trail is very easy, but other parts are very steep. I would... More

worth the stop for a couple of minutes, but there is nothing interesting in this place compared to other places in Dominica, can be skipped.

We came on a cool misty day and had an amazing walk. The vistas are spectacular and the up and downs, while challenging in wet times, are a good workout. Due to the weather, it had an otherworldly vibe, and it was a highlight.

Very green and lush and noticeably cooler than rest of island. The mountain tops are covered by the clouds revealing a substantial freshwater lake. It's truly a sight to behold.

We visited almost as an afterthought but very glad we did. Such a peaceful place, so quiet tie nothing but the occasional light breeze in your ears. This is quite different than the rainforests or on the coast. It is also cooler though it was still T shirt weather in January. We had the place to ourselves for most of... More

If you want to go kayaking or rent a boat, you need to call ahead. When we went, there was no one there. It was a kinda long drive up to the lake, and then when you get there, it looks like any other lake. It's also pretty cold compared to the rest of Dominica, so if you want to... More

Our guide took us up here for lunch. I guess we got lucky that day, because the weather was great. We were the only 3 people eating lunch, but it was a pretty late lunch time. We did not have time to go kayaking. It appears, from the flyer that the cook gave me, that the restaurant had been previously... More
