Dominica really surprised us. Although it’s lack of white sand beaches mean it’s not on the traditional tourist route, the stunning natural scenery of the island and wealth of sights to explore make it one of our favourite Caribbean destinations. We didn’t enjoy Roseau itself, but once we got away from the capital, we had a fabulous time. The driving can be very challenging – some of the most challenging we’ve seen in the Caribbean, so be prepared!
We went for a ride on the Rainforest Aerial Tram, close to Roseau.
We drove around the Carib Territories in Dominica.
We went snorkeling in the Champagne area of Scott's Head Marine Preserve near Soufriere.
The Emerald Pool is a very accessible and picturesque waterfall.
We took a tour and paddled up the Indian River.
We stayed for New Year's at Portsmouth in Picard Beach, in Dominica.
Roseau was a great base from which to explore a lot of Dominica.
We went whalewatching with Dive Dominica and had a great day.
