Nature Lover’s Paradise
Dominica sits midway along the Eastern Caribbean archipelago, just a few miles from Martinique to the south and Guadeloupe to the north. The island is sparsely populated with around 70,000 people inhabiting its 289 square miles. The island is one of only a couple in the Caribbean still with populations of the pre-Columbian Carib Indians.
It is an unspoilt nature lover’s paradise. Tropical forests coat two-thirds of the island, which nourishes 1,200 plant species. Rivers, lakes, streams, and waterfalls are everywhere, fed by the island’s high annual rainfall. The Indian River that feeds into Prince Rupert Bay, is a particularly beautiful river and also another set of a Pirates of the Caribbean movie (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest). It is well worth a trip up the river with one of the local guides.
The offshore marine environment is equally fascinating, as healthy reefs, extraordinary formations and 100-foot visibility draw water lovers. We head to Champagne Reef to snorkel, where warm water seeps from underwater volcanic vents and colourful fish swirl on streams of tiny bubbles.
Dominica’s waters host 22 species of whales and dolphins, making it a prime whale-watching destination year round, and we have been lucky enough to see Dolphins on many occasion as we sail down its beautiful coast.
