These falls are just a small and very easy walk away from the road (10 minutes). The falls themselves, in the middle of the rain forest, are very beautiful. And the splash pool is a very enjoyable place to swim and spend some time. All in all a very good place to visit when getting to the center of Dominica.

Spanny falls was easy to find and a short hike. Once you pay the land owners a small fee, they tell you where the path is located. Light traversing of roots and rocks were required and well worth it. After reaching the first waterfall, continue up the rope and over the hill to the next. It does not disappoint. I... More

Could potentially be a hazard with walking to get back from the main road, but so so worth the trek there. Falls are breathtaking in the middle of the rain forest, so much to see on the way there. Falls are small in nature but the pool below to go swimming in and the cave next to it was just... More

Spanny falls is a great choice if you are looking for a relatively easy hike (15 minutes or so) on a well-maintained trail and a waterfall that doesn't get a lot of traffic. You will see people here, but not even remotely close to the numbers you see at Emerald Pool. The main falls is great to swim in. The... More

Although we had already visited two falls that day, Spanny Falls was still breathtaking. It was raining hard when we visited so we didn't want to risk trying to get to the upper falls, but we heard they were a secret treasure if you visit when it's dry.

After a 10-15 min walk through beautiful rainforest you arrive at the fall. You cannot visit he second fall. It's so much worth the visit because you are most likely the only person to visit at that moment.

Not included in the Site Pass. Not really worth the extra money. Nice if you're staying at the excellent Vena's Paredise Hotel 1 km away and you can come either late or early when you're alone there. You can swim in the pool at the 1st fall.
