The most convenient option is Antrizle Beach. Keep in mind that this beach is a moderate distance away, so you'll never be far from the sea—an endless sparkling backdrop to your vacation. On Dominica's eastern shore, Antrizle Beach is long and quiet. It's a known spot for a good swim, but there isn't great diving or snorkeling here.

If the remoteness of Antrizle Beach doesn't suit your style, you could instead enjoy Sandy Bay Beach at which many visitors create a stir of activity. Located right within Marigot, Sandy Bay Beach is a small but popular beach for a quick cool-off. This one is located a short distance away.
