Batalie Beach

Right off a major highway but still secluded by a wall of trees, Batalie Beach is a great compromise of isolation and convenience.

Located on the northern part of Salisbury, Batalie Beach is on the West coast of Dominica. You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. This beach is not just another pleasant piece of the coast, it's special in that it's one of the few quiet beaches on Dominica. While Batalie Beach might be a little more trouble to reach, it provides a rare chance to escape crowds of tourists.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is located right off of Edward Oliver Leblanc Highway, north of Salisbury.

Amenities and Ambiance

Other than the many trees surrounding you, a few villas off to the side, and the occasional kayaker, there is not much to see on the beach; great for a nap or some private swimming in the ocean.

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