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."

You'll find a large number of beaches to choose from in and around the area. To get full details a specific beach click on the names of the ones you want to learn more about.

Rodney Rock Beach: A sandy strip of coastline on Dominica's edge, this beach is a nice spot to take a break if you're sightseeing along Dominica's western coast.

Another place that beach-goers can consider is Donkey Beach. Donkey Beach is located right off the main road and within feet of the airport and an industrial park. This makes for poor tropical scenery, but it useful if you wanted to go to the same beach as the locals.

Mero Beach: The gray and sandy Mero Beach is located on the west coast of Dominica. It has a nice long stretch of sand, a rarity for Dominica's rocky coastline.
