Spanny Falls, Dominica

4.8
#2 of 8 in Trails in Dominica
Take a short hike up to the beautiful waters of Spanny Falls and cool off in the pools in a lush jungle setting. Set on private property, the falls' friendly owner will guide you to the first cascade. If you're feeling brave, haul yourself up the steep slope using the nearby rope to visit the second set of falls. If you can tackle this challenging climb, you'll see a much more impressive waterfall featuring a larger pool for a swim.

  • First waterfall very accessible, the second a little less you have to climb with a rope but this is doable! (may not be with small children!)

  • Nice little waterfall and easy access (but like everywhere else in Dominica, there's some mud and walking on roots). Just put in Spanny's Shop into Google maps and you'll be fine. There's no admission...  more »

  • Spanny Falls was a fun little hike. We did the extended hike to Penrice Falls and as long as you were appropriate footwear and don't mind using the rope to get up the embankment I suggest going to see it as well. Also stop in and see Linda at the little gift shop! She was the sweetest lady and had a ton of suggestions for things for us to do around the island!
