Plenty of parking, visitor centre with toilets, good trail to the pool & waterfall. Well worth taking a dip - bit bracing at first but not too bad!

Very nice trail to get to the waterfall and the waterfall is quite refreshing and cold...this would be a good trip for a hot day in the nature island of Dominica.

Beautiful place to visit, and to swim in emerald waters. Also impressed with accesibility, disabled or wheelchair can do the top sections and have gorgeous views. Great for families too, paths/steps are not difficult. Nice selection of stalls with local souvenirs, not too pricey.
