Zom Zom Trail
This trail will lead you to a fishermen’s point which was used in the past (and still is) by fishermen for line fishing from the rocks. It offers a spectacular view of the coastline! It takes about 30 to 40 minutes each way and at the end of the trail you will arrive at a cliff. If you wish to climb down to the lava rocks below, a rope is provided; please use it for assistance. Please note that this part of the trail is very difficult and we advise that you stop here if you are not comfortable climbing down. MODERATE-DIFFICULT
Perdu Temps Trail
Retrace the footsteps of Dominica’s “maroons” (run-away slaves). This hike is part of the historic Perdu Temps trail and takes about one and a half hour through secondary forest, mainly flat terrain and some river crossings. It gets steep and narrow as you approach the end and opens up to an area often described as “paradise” or “the Garden of Eden”! Pick fresh fruits off the trees, explore Pump’s isolated organic farm with a huge variety of exotic fruits and vegetables and tour Pump’s “healing garden” with an assortment of healing plants/natural medicine. Pump’s and his family warmly welcome you to their home, which they kindly open to Jungle Bay guests, due to the close relationship they have with Sam – the Owner of Jungle Bay. This tour is one of our guests’ “favorites” and should not be missed! MODERATE
White River Nature Walk
Take a walk to the nearby White River (10 walking minutes away from the Jungle Bay Reception) and enjoy an energizing and therapeutic swim in the natural pools of the river. Next, continue on to a nearby coastal rock beach along the Atlantic Ocean.
Trafalgar Falls (combined with Roseau Market Tour)
Visit the capital city and explore the last authentic community market in the Eastern Caribbean. An opportunity for souvenir shopping (local currency or US dollars in small bills advised). Next, a scenic drive to Trafalgar Falls leads you to the beautiful twin waterfalls with great swimming in both hot and cool pools.
