Owner description: You’ll need to hike up to this lake, the largest in the island, but the trek won’t be lonely: hundreds of hummingbirds will keep you humming along.

We had some time to kill and had been asked by a couple locals if we had seen the Freshwater lake. Because of this we thought it must be something to see. Not so much. It was cloudy, cold, windy, and just not inspiring. It looked like any old lake at home and I just wasn't in to it. We had originally thought we'd hike around it, but the miserable weather changed that. We were the only people up there and couldn't imagine wanting to paddle on it. Maybe it gets nicer weather? Just not a sight worth spending time on to us.

Nice location, great to visit depending on the time of year. A bit cold in October.

Still a great site

If you love to hike, this is definitely a beautiful place to do it. There are various trails and the scenery is breath-taking. You can also go for a swim in the lake and kayak as well.

We walked to the lake from Grand Fond along the Chemin L'Etang trail which is a bit overgrown, so we really felt like we'd earned our view of the beautiful Freshwater Lake. When we arrived the cloud had lifted and we got a good view, but bear in mind it's often cloudy and rainy up here so bring a waterproof. If you have time make your way to the Boeri Lake which is even more isolated and stunning.

It is a small lake, easily reached by car. The drive is probably more spectacular - as most drives are, in Dominica - than the lake itself. We come from the land of lakes, so, admittedly we are a bit jaded ;-). There is a 45 minute hike to Boeri Lake nearby...do that...more interesting.
