Trafalgar Falls

Eight kilometers up from the Roseau River Valley, in the south-central sector of Dominica, Trafalgar Falls can be reached after you drive through the village of Trafalgar. There, however, you have to approach by foot, as the slopes are too steep for vehicles. After a 20-minute walk, you arrive at the base, where a trio of falls converge into a rock-strewn pool. Boulders sprout vegetation and tree ferns encircle the flowing water. On the way there you pass growths of ginger plants or vanilla orchids.
