Dominica is without doubt the ‘Nature Island’ of the Caribbean and one of its best-kept secrets. Few places on earth exude eternal beauty like Dominica. Its rivers and rainforests, soaring mountains and black volcanic beaches, defy the stereotypical sun, sea and sand package. This incredible island is ideal for all those who travel with a passion not just to see things, but also to make discoveries.
The island is a sobering reminder of what much of the region must have looked like before colonisation and deforestation and it has been said that Dominica is the only Caribbean island that Columbus would recognise, were he to land today. It boasts a remarkable range of natural habitats and a very rich bird life including the rare Imperial and Red-necked Parrots, known locally as Sisserou and Jaco. The stunning mountains will attract hikers, while divers will relish the depths of the oceans. This is also one of the best places in the Caribbean to spot whales and dolphins all year round.
There are so many places of both natural and cultural interest to visit here such as the incredibly scenic wilderness of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, the ‘Boiling Lake’, Emerald Pool and then there is the Carib Territory, which is the only place in the Caribbean still inhabited by the original settlers of the area.
