Anse Soldat

One of the several coves of the northern resort area, Anse Soldat is the beach of choice for everyone staying in that area.

Located on the northern side of the island of Dominica, 0.5 miles northwest of Anse Du Me, You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying very close. The area surrounding the beach is not very urbanized, but that doesn't mean you won't find a fair amount of excitements at this beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Bordered by two long peninsulas, the cove actually serves as a funnel, giving the beach some rough waters at times, and nice calm water at others. However, at all times you can expect to see beach-goers, swimmers, fishermen, and all other kinds of people enjoying their time here.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.
