From mountainous landscape to lush forest, and even featuring a small fishing village, the Calibashie region of Dominica is diverse in its offerings.  This diversity continues into the activities that abound.  Days are easily filled on the rocky shores watching the surf splash onto the rugged beaches, hiking through nature trails, or visiting some of the less dominant cultural landmarks in the area. 


Woodford Hill Bay

You will find a large number of beaches to choose from in the area. Whether you're looking forward to people watching, or you prefer a quieter stretch of sand, you should find some appealing options. You can click on each beach name to get additional information about that particular location.

Black Sands Beach: It is not hard to see how Black Sands Beach got its name. Come take a look at one of the most famous beaches on the island.

Another place for beach-goers to consider is Woodford Hill Bay. A sandy shoreline near a stunning cape, Woodford Hill Bay is on the island's northeast edge. It's a great sightseeing locale.

Walker's Rest Bay: Access here isn't difficult, but it's not a beach you see from the main road. You can ask directions in the nearby town of Wesley and you'll be given them gladly.

These examples are just some of the options. To learn more about beaches available, read this page.


Assuming you like to become more aware of other cultures and places, you might enjoy visiting a museum during your vacation.

Natural Attractions

Tourists who enjoy the natural environment will probably have a good time at Brenner Falls. A wonderful family adventure awaits anyone willing to get a little wet! Brenner Falls is a secluded waterfall that has dug itself into the cliff it is falling from, forming a "U" shape in the cliff with the waterfall at the back.

Another attraction you might want to consider is Morne Diablotin National Park. Established in the year 2000, Morne Diablotin National Park serves as a safe haven for the Sisserou Parrot, the symbol of Dominica that has sadly been driven to the verge of extinction.
