|The Caribbean has always been a popular destination for travellers. But if you're looking for something different, a place that goes beyond the typical beach-based vacation, it's time to discover Dominica.
Known as the "Nature Island", Dominica lies south of Guadeloupe and north of Martinique in the eastern Caribbean. The secret is getting out, but this stunning island is still somewhat of a hidden gem well worth exploring. From hiking and diving to water sports and whale watching, there's something here to satisfy every traveller.
The first thing I noticed upon getting acquainted with Dominica, was just how vibrantly green it is. Tropical forest covers a whopping two-thirds of the island making it a nature-lovers paradise. Gorgeous rivers, lakes, streams and waterfalls abound, creating a lush environment perfect for rejuvenating both mind and body. It's an island that feels alive, bursting with awe-inspiring scenery you won't find anywhere else.
