Hike to Brandy Falls, Dominica

    Added by Stuart Yee

    This is a fun 4 mile jungle hike about 10 minutes from Portsmouth, Dominica. Be prepared to trek through a maze of jungle and scramble across the river several times! 

    In order to get to the Brandy Falls Trailhead, take a taxi from Portsmouth. It should be about a 10 minute taxi ride to Brandy Manor. Furthermore, you will want to find a guide and negotiate drop off and pick up at the Trailhead. You will be hiking in the middle of the jungle without any trail for most of the hike, so I highly suggest getting a guide.

    Once you arrive at Brandy Manor, the Trailhead to Brandy Falls will be straight ahead. You will also have stables to your left where you can go horseback riding! The first portion of the hike is uphill and is abundant in fruits. The trail then stops and our guide took us through the jungle. Be very careful where you walk because there are ants everywhere, loose roots, several steep drops. For me this was the trickiest part of the hike.

    After hiking through the jungle, you will hit the river and go upstream towards Brandy Falls! Be prepared for lots of rock scrambling and river crossings. The rocks are extremely slippery so having a hiking stick may be of use. After about a mile of rock scrambling, you will hit the falls! The falls are an excellent spot to relax and clean off from the jungle hike! 

    Going back, our guide took us farther downstream because it's much easier to go downstream than upstream on this hike. As a result, we had less jungle hiking.
