Dublanc Beach

Dublanc Beach is the western coastal edge of the village of Dublanc. The shore is rocky and gray and the there is just a thin strip of coastline between the buildings and the sea.

Located in Dublanc, 2.1 miles north of Colihaut, Dublanc Beach is on the North West coast of Dominica. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Though you couldn't go so far as to say Dublanc Beach is secluded, you'll probably run into fewer crowds than at most other beaches on Dominica. So while this isn't the most private place on the island to spend time with your sweetheart, less traffic at this beach means you'll encounter a lot less people along your romantic walk.

How to Access The Beach
Access this beach by heading north from Roseau on Leblanc Highway and enjoy the stunning coastal sightseeing on the way.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach is adjacent to a tiny village and great for watching the movement of local fishermen as they come and go. The waters are calm and warm and the beach is clean and flat. There are stunning views of the Caribbean sea and a great panoramic view of the inland mountains.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

Dublanc Beach grants a calm and peaceful haven, as the region surrounding the beach is more rural than urban.
