The Emerald pool is with out doubt one of the most popular attractions, and is perhaps one of Dominica’s most photographed natural site.

Buses pass the Emerald Pool on their way to the villages of Castle Bruce and Carib Territory, and can be caught be the west outbound bridge in Roseau. Bus fare:EC$6.50 adults and children EC$3.25.

If traveling by car, once at the Pont Casse roundabout take the road to Castle Bruce and Carib Territory. Lookout for the road sign on the left-hand side of the road at the junction.

Take a short stroll through the rainforest along a easy track, which takes you through magnificent overhanging trees and lush vegetation. Midway of the hike there’s a spectacular overhead view of the pool to the right.

Some steps up and then eventually down, lead to the waterfalls. Be careful, the rocks around the pool can be very slippery – use your hands to maintain your balance and follow the signs.

On warm and sunny days the crystal water turn greenish blue and turns pale green in the evening. Bring along your swimming suit and a towel because you’re going to be utterly seduced by the intensity of the pool’s turquoise colored water, and taking a cool refreshing swim is a definitely a must. Beware that the water is quite chilly, but once you are in, it is quite a good experience. 😀
