About Dominica

Caribbean, West Indies

 

The island's landscape, created during a distant past as well as a current active volcanic period, consists of extremely precipitous rugged mountains and rain forest terrain. The climate is spring-like; the sun is either shining or it is raining. Hardly a day goes by that one does not experience a shower and several rainbows.


The  island is 29 miles long and 16 miles across at its widest points. 365 rivers interlace the forests; there are a multitude of waterfalls, some falling hundreds of feet. The highest mountain is 4,746 feet tall.  All is surrounded by the often tumultuous Atlantic Ocean on the east and the composed Caribbean Sea on the west. The majority of Dominica's beaches are black sand due to the island's volcanic upbringing. Dominica, a part of Caribbean West Indies series if islands, is flanked closely by Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south.

 

Known as the Nature Island, Dominica supports 3 National Parks / Forest Reserves that provide a multitude of hiking trails & paths (ranging from easy to very challenging) leading to numerous waterfalls, a volcanic boiling lake, a freshwater lake, dormant volcanoes and other rain forest attractions. A Marine Reserve offers a rich abundance of reefs, corals, fishes and other marine life; some of the best scuba diving in the world is experienced here. Whales and porpoise frequent the surrounding sea.

 

Dominicaís people are friendly and happy with life -- facts concretely and continually demonstrated.  The islandís population is approximately 70,000.  Fish, fruit and vegetables provide everyday staples; the majority of citizens have gardens and, those that donít, can rely upon those neighbors that do.  Community markets, likewise, offer a wide variety of produce. Bananas, plantains, mangos, oranges, grapefruit, limes, pineapples and a variety of other fruits and vegetables support Dominicaís economy.
