After a beautiful drive, you get to walk through beautiful scenery and swim in a perfect temperature waterfall. What's not to love. Reminded me of Costa Rica

Dominica's enchanted interior is magical. The Emerald pool,waterfall and primary forest untouched by today's builders is a reminder of what used to be. There is a ten minute walk on even ground for those unable to climb to the bottom. The waterfall is average but it is the setting that counts. the hardy splash around in the pool at the... More

The Emerald Pool is as gorgeous as advertised, and the hike down to it is really beautiful. It's pretty short, so even novice hikers can take this on very easily. The pool and falls are fantastic. One of the most gorgeous spots on Earth, in my opinion.

This was a truly lovely walk through beautiful scenery, but a well made pathway. Wonderful swim in the Emerald Pool under the waterfall.

Caution: roads are through mountains from most places on the island! Gorgeous and well worth the trip. Short walk from the parking lot to the pool. Area is cool and shaded/protected by a canopy of trees. Part of the National Trail is accessible from here.

Our island tour included the Emerald Pool. It is a 20 minute walk through the rain forest to get there but it is worth it. You get great photos from the upper path as you arrive. I wore my bathing suit to enjoy the cool refreshing waters and was the only one brave enough to enter. It is not easy... More

We took a tour of 3 falls, with this being the last of the 3. It was during Carnival, and a bit late, so we had the place to ourselves. The walk to the falls itself was beautiful. The trail was very well maintained and easy to traverse. Once we got down to the pool and falls, you could wade/swim... More

At the visitors' center you can get a site pass for $5 US per person, and that gets you access to the trail. The trail itself is easy and short, maybe 5 minutes' walk to the pool. Other reviews suggested that it was often crowded, but when we were there it was nearly deserted, with only one other couple at... More

This is a beautiful place and a good introduction to the rainforest, but try to arrive before the crowds from the cruise ships or after they have left. Highly accessible.

Does not compare to similar pools in Maui or Zion National Park. It is a nice comfortably cool walk to and from pool. A few souvenir shops in parking lot and small food concession. As part of tour it is OK. Driving just to see this attraction is not worth the 45 minute hazardous drive.
