Au Coin Waterfall

This large waterfall is located deep into the forest, to the west of Concord Falls. Unlike many of the other forested waterfalls on Grenada, this one is an easy hike and relatively well marked. Complete with a pool, this is a fantastic spot for any visitor hoping to see natural Grenada.

This white waterfall is in stark contrast to the dark brown and green around it. The dense forest all around it gives the waterfall the appearance of actually flowing right out of the trees. The water seems to be a perfect white and stand out through the scenery. No need to take it all in at once, get up close and personal and swim right up to the waterfall and truly experience its might and beauty.
