Dominica

Dominica luxury holidays

Introduction

Despite its natural beauty, Dominica remains off most peoples' radar when considering Caribbean holidays. Less developed than some of its neighbours, there are fewer sandy beaches and no thumping nightlife, meaning the holidays in Dominica appeal to visitors looking for ancient forests, rugged mountains, endemic birdlife and a wonderful mix of marine adventures.

The dramatically sited capital Roseau is poor but incredibly welcoming. Jeep safaris and canoe trips allow you to explore the surrounding region.

Most visitors travel to Morne Trois Pitons National Park, an impressive rainforest reserve that makes up much of the volcanic interior; here, stroll to the tranquil Emerald Pool or trek to the surreal, striking Boiling Lake.

There are plenty of beaches along the coast, including Woodford Hill, the classic white sand postcard picture and the more rugged Londonderry Beach, where the sand is black. Divers should head to Scotts Head Drop to explore the coral ledge and undersea wall here, or marvel at Champagne Beach.
