TORAILLE WATERFALL, SOUFRIERE, ST. LUCIA
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY, AVERAGE FROM 1 TO 5:1
Cold waterfall near rainforest in Soufriere area. Beautiful, well kept botanical gardens. Main tourist stop on cruise day trip. Price– 5 EC.
Great place to take your friends and family. I recommend spending 15-20 minutes.
Getting there: Either walk inland from Soufriere Town toward Fond St. Jaques about 30 minutes. Or take Fond St. Jaques bus next to Church in Soufriere– takes about 3-5 minutes.
Bus fee: $1.00 EC. Toraille
PEACE CORPS PROCEDURE:
- Easy trail– does not need any special procedure.
-ALWAYS hike with at least one partner, preferably two.

I have been to Toraille many times. It’s a great place to take visitors.
Especially visitors who want an EASY WAY TO SEE BEAUTIFUL
St. Lucia! The water under the waterfall is extremely forceful– I wouldn’t recommend trying to get a massage. It may push you under water. It also is very cold– but nice to soak your feet on a hot day. There is a little bar there for drinks as well. There are many little waterfall spots in this area– this could be one stop for the day.
