FreshWater Lake

Also known as Warmae Letang, this lake is responsible for generating a great deal of energy for the island. Locals often tell tale of a one-eyed monster that is supposed to reside within the waters, but these are just things of legend and nothing to be feared.

Though it is often said to be bottomless, FreshWater lake is really 55 feet deep.

The lake is a wonderful place to hike around, and offers trails and amazing views, especially towards the beginning and end of the day. The trail around the lake takes about an hour to traverse at a good pace.


FreshWater Lake is located on the island of Dominica, 6.1 miles northeast of downtown Roseau; it's 5.6 miles to the east-northeast of Roseau.

Hikers can access FreshWater Lake by taking the 2.5 mile road from Laudat Roseau.
