Dubuc Beach

On Dominica's south shore, Dubuc Beach features incredible mountain views and a long rocky beach. It's not ideal for swimming but simply soaking in the beauty of the scenery around you.

Located in Dubuc, 1.0 mile east of Berekua, Dubuc Beach is on the South coast of Dominica. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you are staying very close. Dominica's beaches are hardly known for being secluded, but Dubuc Beach is less exposed than the others, making it just the right spot for vacationers who aren't fond of huge throngs of tourists.

How to Access The Beach
This beach is on well known Grand Bay and is easily accessible. Get here by car along the coastal roads or cut across the island just south of Roseau towards Berekua.

Amenities and Ambiance

The bay features clear, clean waters that burst upon a rocky shoreline. There's a small coastal bar along the road and great sightseeing here.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

If you happen to prefer coasts that offer visitors a tranquil experience, then you should enjoy Dubuc Beach; it's back in a less urbanized section of the region.
