Dominica Holidays

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 unique island is the ideal destination for all those who travel with a passion, not just to see things, but also to make discoveries.

Dominica 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.

In September 2017, Dominica was devastated by Hurricane Maria, which destroyed the island’s infrastructure, communication systems, forests and homes. The ‘nature island’ of the Caribbean is home to some 70,000 people, all of whom have been severely affected by this disaster, as have Dominica’s natural sites and hiking trails. However, the island is now recovering and is ready to welcome visitors once again.

We can tailor-make a holiday to suit your individual interests and are offering an opportunity for volunteering on the island, which can also be done as part of a Lesser Antilles holiday.
