Victoria Falls is a large, well known, misty waterfall on the East coast of Dominica. Unlike many of the other large waterfalls, this one is only located about an hour from a parking area, and is easy to get to.

This large waterfall creates a mist as it plummets into the large pool below. Located in a large valley, you can see tall cliffs and mountains reaching high above the canopy of trees all around you.

Location

Victoria Falls is found on the island of Dominica, 0.5 miles west of Delices; it's seven and a half miles (12 kilometers) to the east of Roseau.

There are a few way to reach Victoria Falls, as it is very popular. You can chose to drive a four-wheel drive vehicle directly to the waterfall if you like, taking the side road west out of Delices. From this village there is also trails that take you for about an hour a two hour walk up and down slippery rock. A local guide can help you navigate the rough terrain.
