Sultan Falls is a series five waterfalls located in Sultan, near Dominica’s interior. It is a popular tourist site, however, a quick Google search turns up at least three versions of the name:
- Salton Falls
- Soultan Falls, and
- Sultan Falls
They are all pronounced the same way, so I’ll stick to using the last version in this post and throughout the website.

Where is Sultan Falls?
Sultan Falls is approximately 35 minutes outside of Roseau. I drove up Imperial Road and when I got to the roundabout at Pond Case, we took a left toward the settlement of Warner.
This area is known as Sultan and you’ll come to a large sign on the left-hand side of the road after driving for about 5 or 7 minutes.
The site is run by a friendly family who charged me EC $10 to access their land. After paying at the reception area, I drove down a rough concrete road for 5 minutes and stopped at a crude parking lot.
It was obvious that a lot of excavation work had been done to make the site more accessible. I cannot imagine what getting to the waterfalls was like before the paved roads and marked paths.
I captured this first image near the parking lot:
To get to the waterfalls from the parking lot, I had to walk down a rough dirt road for about 5 minutes. At the bottom you could either go up to see Waterfall #1 or down to see Waterfall #2. The following are images from both waterfalls:
From a distance I could see one other waterfall, up on a hill. However, I had no idea how to get there. So I packed up began the journey home. I’ll be back though, soon!
On the way home, while driving through Red Gully, I captured the image below:
