Activities in Portsmouth

Dominica's second largest city is Portsmouth, home to an old British fort and protected turtle habitats along the shore.  This town is fast becoming a top tourist destination on the island, and when a cruise ship is in port it can be a bit crowded.  To get away from the crowd, you'll find that a hike into Cabrits National Park is a favored activity, where you'll find tropical forest and boiling springs to explore and coral reef in the wetlands that can be seen by diving or snorkeling.
