Brenner Falls

A wonderful family adventure awaits anyone willing to get a little wet! Brenner Falls is a secluded waterfall that has dug itself into the cliff it is falling from, forming a "U" shape in the cliff with the waterfall at the back.

Brenner Falls is a rock surrounded falls, though this does not detract from its beauty. Etching its way into the cliff, the waterfall is nearly enclosed by walls of rock, and the experience of being surrounded by these tall walls with the waterfall as company is an memory to be kept.


Situated on the island of Dominica, near Penville, Brenner Falls welcomes residents and visitors who are lodging on this part of the island. Even if you are not staying in this location, you should consider stopping by to check out the sights. It's northeast of Portsmouth.

The waterfall is only half the adventure. Reaching it will make you and your family feel like explorers. Exiting the main road near Vielle Case, you will have to hike upstream in one of the more mountainous regions of Dominica. For this reason, comfortable and waterproof shoes are a good idea. As always, with the presence of still or slow moving water, bug spray can help protect you from mosquitoes.
