To get to the island’s highest waterfall at 150 feet, you’ll need to take a one-hour hike through fern- and orchid-filled rainforest.
An hour and half “intermediate” hike will lead you into the heart of the rainforest of the Morne Trois Piton National Park.
There you will find a fascinating variety of trees, plants and shrubs. With a view of the falls in the distance, you will feel a cool spray of water on your body.
The falls are striking, with a narrow stream dropping about 200 ft. from a keyhole notch in the lip of the cliff. The pool beneath the falls is swimmable, though a bit chilly!
Insider’s Travel Tips
This is a beautiful hike. There is a parking lot with a restroom at the end of the entrance road. There will be a park ranger there that can give you advice and check your park pass. Make sure you pack enough water, as it becomes hot and humid along the way. Take a dip in the refreshing pool at the end of the hike. Be careful as you boulder down to the pool, as the rocks are slippery. The lower pools are easier to get to.
