Background Info  

Titou Gorge

Translated to “little hole”, Titou Gorge is an enchanting swimming hole, nestled in the beautiful, mountain-top community of Laudat. The gorge is known for its refreshing emerald water, which flows calmly down Titou’s canyon from the mountain heights. Rock towers above, bordering blue sky and forest canopy and giving room for penetrating rays of sunshine. Titou is best known for its iconic scene in Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man’s Chest, where Captain Jack Sparrow is seen tumbling down the gorge in a vine cage.

A swim up Titou reveals a clam, emerald oasis, serenaded by chirping birds and rustling trees. A small waterfall greets daring swimmers and the deep pool is perfect for a cliff jump in.

Titou Gorge is an amazing site for visitors to the island and is a must do on the way back from an intense Boiling Lake Hike.

Champagne Reef

Champagne Reef, located on the sunny south-western coast of the island, is a vibrant ocean habitat with a unique twist. The reef gets its name from the champagne-like bubbles which spurt form the ocean floor. Volcanic activity in Dominica’s south is the pre-cursoe for this sea-bed activity.

Champagne offers a visual combustion of marine life, and volcanic ocean activity to divers and snorkelers alike. A short drive along the coast and, romantic walk along stony beachside will get you there. Champagne is a must for anyone who loves the other-worldly terrain that is the ocean.

Trafalgar Falls

Dominica is known for its numerous cascading waterfalls, all unique and magnificent i their own right but Trafalgar Falls is indeed remarkable. The only twin waterfall on the island, these majestic beauties cascade side by side into pristine pools beneath.

Affectionately named the Mother and Father Falls, Trafalgar’s twin falls complement each other beautifully and give birth to numerous water basins and streams at their base.

Trafalgar is also known for the unique sulphur springs which trickle and pool warm water alongside cold, making the perfect, natural therapeutic bath.

Trafalgar Falls is another must see for visitors to the island, and it is worth experiences the magical warm and cold water that define the uniqueness of this natural wonder.

Freshwater Lake

The largest of Dominica’s four lakes, Freshwater Lake is perched just over 2500 feet above sea level, in the tranquil community of Laudat. The lake is a vast, calm settlement of emerald water, hugged by mountain and sky and inhabited by a myriad of freshwater critters. A visit to Fresh Water Lake may have you feeling like you’ve left the Caribbean. As you ascend up steep hills into the mountains, the air gets lighter and colder. The lake has a chilly ambience, is misty and often times unbearably cold at night for locals.

It is the perfect place for a snuggle at night and of course for adventure at day. One can enjoy a relaxing kayak across the lake or a soothing row boat ride. While the boats float silently above, nature’s sounds echo across the expanse as birds and butterflies flutter by the islands which dot the water.

In the surrounding mountains is a loop trail which brings hikers around the lake from above. Spectacular 360 degree views await any hiker and the lush forest is a haven for nature lovers.

A 10 minute drive from Laudat wil get you there, and the extreme tranquility and ambiance of the lake will definitely keep you. Dominica’s Freshwater Lake is another must-do for anyone on a Dominica vacation.
