Things to Do in Dominica

Dominica might not have the endless white sandy beaches of some other Caribbean destinations but this has very much worked in the island’s favour. It means it has been spared the worst excesses of tourism development, retaining its immense natural beauty and volcanic charm. Dotted with hot springs, dramatic waterfalls and vast swathes of pristine jungle, you can experience the natural world at its finest on Dominica, which is why it’s earned itself the nickname ‘The Nature Island of the Caribbean’.

Areas & Neighbourhoods in Dominica

Roseau - The capital city has a number of excellent restaurants as well as great views over the mountains and sparkling Caribbean sea. It’s a real cultural experience.

Scott’s Head - A stunning village in the southwest corner of the island, sitting next to a curving bay. This is one of the best places to scuba dive and snorkel on the island.

Calibishie - A rugged coastline that’s lined with verdant jungle, one of the few places in the world where the forest comes right down to the water.

Portsmouth - The second city of the island and home to a large university, giving it a lively and young vibe.

Things to See in Dominica

Visit the Central and Northern Forest Reserves, vast swathes of pristine jungle that covers much of the island. It’s also well worth a trip to Toucari Bay, a quaint fishing village with some WWI wreck sites for diving. The Morne Trois Pitons National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains a number of major attractions, including the slightly frighteningly named Boiling Lake. The volcanic activity that formed the island is really in evidence here, with huge mountain tops and volcanic vents. The Jaco Steps, built by escaped slaves, lead up to their former camp where they were in hiding on a vast plateau. Everywhere you look in Dominica there is natural splendour and beauty.

Things to Do in Dominica

Relax in geothermal hot springs that litter the island. Go snorkelling in Champagne, a unique spot where underwater volcanic activity releases a constant stream of bubbles into the water. If you’re in the mood for a challenge, hike the Waitukubuli National Trail which runs from the north to the south of the island for 115 miles, although it’s divided into 14 more manageable sections. Scuba dive at wreck sites off the coast or explore Glassy, a deep jungle valley that leads down to a dramatic coastline with crashing waves all around. You can also see some of the island’s unique and impressive waterfalls, including Middleham and Trafalgar, and follow the trail up to the Valley of Desolation. Rock climbers will also find plenty of face for a good work out.
