How far to Screw's

Hi,

We are visiting Dominica in Feb during a cruise and as we've been to the island a number of times and loved it, we fancied doing something a little different and I heard about Screw's Sulphur Spa which sounds wonderful. I wondered how far it is from the cruise port and would we be able to just jump in a taxi. I'd also like to know how long should we expect to be there as theres a lovely little restaurant near the port where we'd like to have lunch again.

Thanks

Okay it's Wotton, same area that you pass through towards Trafalgar. BTDT, make it 45 mins from the cruise jetty - as usual 'from Roseau' here means from the eastern end of town, not taking into account any city centre traffic. Still feasible in your plans...

All the best,

Has anyone been to Screw"s How much it is? How much is the taxi? Is there shade? Do you have to wear an old bathing suit?

AND....is it worth it?

The taxi fare to screws is us$20 per person.

To get in the pool you pay us$10 per person.When you are at screws you do not get the full blast of the sun since there are over hanging trees.The vegetation is just green and beautiful you will love it. There are changing rooms right before you get in the pool.

Just as an FYI- there are Ferrous hot springs just below the Trafalgar falls (follow the trail after the platform). They were so nice, warm and didn't smell, and really, not many people there in the afternoon (after the cruise tours). $5 for the falls and the springs and no smell.

Screw's is an incredible experience. We went there after going to Titou Gorge, so it was kind of late in the day. But you have never experienced anything so relaxing as this . . . and it's all natural! To think that the water comes out of the earth at this temperature (even hotter, actually, as it is tempered with cool water flowing into each pool to control the temperature). Anyway, I wouldn't say an old bathing is necessary. There is no particular offensive sulfur odor or tint.

And it is more like 45 minutes from Roseau, not 15. Nothing in Dominica is 15 minutes from anything!
