Dominica

A rare and natural beauty

Dominica is surely one of the most surprising and untouched islands in the entire Caribbean, taking the breath away of all who visit its shores. Part of the Lesser Antilles archipelago in the Windwards, this green and lush island is missed by cruise liners, and with no direct flights, it has not opened up to mass tourism. Vertiginous volcanic landscape, natural hot springs, dense rainforest and rare flora and fauna, with species found nowhere else, have earned it the name of  ‘the nature island’. Brightly coloured parrots, tiny hummingbirds and tree frogs with their nocturnal chorus fill the forests. Steep green peaks drop dramatically into the sea, meeting vividly coloured coral reefs and hiding idyllic sandy coves, and waterfalls with deep, clear natural swimming pools at their base, can be found on many a trail. No visit to the island should be without a hike to the extraordinary Boiling Lake in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park – the second largest in the world. Dominica is one of the last remaining Caribbean islands to have settlements of indigenous people – here long before Columbus sailed past. The population is also committed to preserving the unique nature of the island, with geothermal energy sources and sustainable agriculture. If you want to see the Caribbean how it used to be, this is your island.

Why Visit?

It is the epitome of paradise – unspoilt and quieter than other Caribbean islands but with similar sugary sandy beaches, coral reefs, aquamarine waters, sunshine and a warm, calm Caribbean sea. It is a secret gem.

It has an abundance of natural splendors – rainforest landscape, 365 rivers, the second largest boiling lake in the world, subterranean volcanoes, mountains, waterfalls, hot springs, and both white and black sand beaches.

Eco paradise – for a tiny island, Dominica punches above her weight in striving for sustainability. Committed to eco-tourism; a ban on many types of plastic; the use of geothermal energy and investment in its native wildlife, the island aims to have as little impact on the environment as possible.

Wildlife – Dominica is home to three species of turtle that can be seen from protected sites. Sperm whales are often spotted and dolphins are plentiful. Inland, parrots add a riot of colour to the rainforest, and keep an eye out for agoutis and manicous!

Adventure – a myriad of trails criss cross the island – through lush national parks and dense rainforest, and otherworldly volcanic landscape – visitors can hike, canyon, climb and swim. Underwater, around the coast, divers and snorkelers witness some of the region’s most unspoilt sealife.

Culture – Dominica is home to some of the last of the indigenous Caribs – the tribes here long before colonisation.
