Mahaut is a popular destination amongst tourists visiting Dominica, who come to marvel at the unique nature of the beaches here.  Rather than bright, white sands and crystal-clear waters, here you'll encounter darker sands and smaller shores, backed by the lush tropical greenery that visitors have come to expect of the "Nature Isle."
