About Sault Falls (Errard Falls or Dennery Falls)
Sault Falls (also known as Errard Falls as well as Dennery Falls) is perhaps the most scenic waterfall in St Lucia.
It featured a drop of some 15-20m over a rounded cliff with a few smaller cascades further downstream.
We felt that this place represented one of the few accessible waterfalls on the eastern side of the island of St Lucia near the fishing town of Dennery (though I heard it belongs on the Errard Plantation).
It was quite a quiet and relaxing spot and certainly worth the effort to get to as far as we were concerned.
Once we were able to park the car (see directions below), we followed a trail as it descended towards the Dennery River.
We got blocked views of the falls from here, but we then proceeded by getting a little wet going across the river to get right up to the base of Sault Falls.
Having been to tropical destinations before, we knew to bring water shoes (like Keens) for occasions like this.
When we made our visit to the Sault Falls, we noticed a couple of folks who actually started to leave just when we showed up.
So that left Julie and I enjoying this waterfall by ourselves.
Eventually when we left, another another couple just showed up, which meant that they, too, would have the falls to themselves.
Indeed, this was one of the quieter and more pleasant waterfalling experiences that we could recall on the island of St Lucia, and we were very glad to have found this spot on the quieter east side of the island.
Sault Falls resides in the Dennery Quarter of St Lucia. It is administered by Government of Saint Lucia. For more information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, you can try visiting their website.
Once in Dennery, we had to look for a road that led inland nearby the Dennery River.
Upon finding it, we then continued along that road, which was mostly smooth and paved.
Eventually, we reached some zipline tour area (I believe they were called Treetop Adventures), where we continued for a couple of minutes more, veering left at a fork.
We ultimately stopped the car once we saw a shack with garbage bags around it, and we later realized that the shack kind of represented the landmark where the trail to the Sault Falls began.
There was writing that said that we couldn’t park by the shack with the garbage in front of it so we had to find parking in one of the pullouts further away.
These other spots didn’t have much room, and we tried to make sure not to block the entrances.
Therefore, I’d imagine that finding parking for this waterfall was very limited.
Since we don’t have an atlas or decent map showing road names and numbers, we necessarily had to be vague about the directions here.
Plus, the waterfall was not that well signposted so we actually wound up asking a very helpful guide at the Treetop Adventures area to verbally tell us where the falls were (which happened to be very close to their ziplining facility).
Just to give you some context, the drive from Gros Islet to the falls was about 38km (taking us at least an hour). Gros Islet was on the opposite side of the island from the airport some 65km away (or 90 minutes by vehicle). The flight from the Miami International Airport to the Saint Lucia Airport was on the order of 4 hours.
