The beaches of Roseau are a sight to be hold, with their volcanic, rocky, black sands that even in the Caribbean are not easy to come by. Not favored for days spend relaxing, swimming, and sunning, they are still a great choice for a visit for the vista, a walk along the shore, and and experience you'll be able to relive for generations.
There are several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Simply click on the name of the beach to get additional information concerning that particular location.
Woodbridge Bay Beach: Although Woodbridge Bay Beach is one of the most convenient option if you're desperate to dip your toes in the warm Caribbean sea, you'll probably be happier if you venture farther out of town. This short stretch of shoreline is primarily of interest because it is right in Roseau; unfortunately, it doesn't have anything going for it beyond providing direct public access to the water right in town.
A second place that beach-goers can consider is Mahaut South Beach. The coastline of a tiny fishing village, this beach doesn't call to mind the white sand wonder that you think of when you imagine a day at the beach, but like most of Dominica's shoreline, it's draw is the beautiful view of the lush green mountains and the clean, endless ocean.
Pointe Michel: Pointe Michel is south of Roseau and is very easy to find and to access. Head south from Roseau down Victoria Street to Pointe Michel.
