Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Located deep in the Morne Trois Piton National Park is Dominca’s tallest waterfall – The Middleham Falls. At 150 feet, you’ll need to take a one-hour hike through fern- and orchid-filled rainforest.

This spectacular waterfall can be accessed for 2 trailheads. Start from either cochrane (turn inland by the Old Mill Cultural Centre in Canefield) or from the roseau Valley, lookout a large sign on the left just before the village of laudat.

On the way to and from the falls, look for and smell the stinking Hole, which is filled with thousands of bats.

And don’t forget to take your bathing suit – you might just need it. Are you familiar with Middleham Falls? Share what you know with other travelers in the comments

Tip: Make sure your camera is well protected (w/ a waterproof camera bag or in plastic bags), to prevent the large amount of spray given off by the Falls from entering your camera.

Hikefest this year ended with a hike the from beautiful village of Capuchin all the way to Cabrits National Park, showcasing segment 14 of the Waitukubuli National Trail.

Unlike the first two to hikes (Salybia to Pagau Bay and Soufriere to Scotts Head), this is a coastal trail which begins and ends within a historical setting from the Canna Heritage Park to the Cabrits Fort Shirley.

Some of the other interesting area along this trail includes the Connor Heritage Park, view of Les Saints & Guadeloupe, Old Church, Rhino horn, villages of Clifton, Toucari & Cottage Cliffs, and Belle Hall Beach.

It is a moderate hike (10.8 km.), although there are some areas along the coastal part of the trail that can be a bit tricky, and will you need to literally climb or drag yourself across if you don’t want to get wet. Look out for falling rock, and wear comfort shoes because 80% of the trail requires you to walk through stones.

All in all it was a Beautiful hike, with wonderful people on nice and sunny day. Just couldn’t be better. If you have a chance to hike Capuchin to Cabrits don’t hesitate to do it, you won’t be disappointed. As always, here are some photos from the hike…enjoy!
