Emerald Pool, Dominica

Situated in the middle of the lush Morne Trois Piton National Park, Emerald Pool sits at the base of a 40-foot waterfall. The pool itself is a bright green colour and surrounded by moss-covered rocks and dangling vines. But when the sun shines through the trees and the light filters onto water, the pool transforms into a deep emerald colour.
