Discover Beautiful Dominica with Funway Holidays
Dominica, known as the 'Nature Island of the Caribbean’; represents an unspoiled Caribbean paradise for nature lovers, walkers, bird-spotters, divers and anyone looking for a unique Caribbean escape. One of the best-kept secrets of the Caribbean, this island is a lush landscape of verdant rainforests, soaring mountains, white-water rivers, soothing waterfalls, and dramatic volcanic features - in fact everything the visitor needs for a unique Caribbean holiday.
The abundance of natural attractions and the escape the island offers from mainstream tourism means that Dominica attracts individual travellers and eco-adventurers with its activity themed holidays, including botanical explorations, bird-watching, river tubing, superb diving and walking the Caribbean's first long-distance hiking trail.
Top 5 Experiences
- Go snorkelling or diving on Champagne Reef, named for the bubbling waters rising from volcanic thermal springs on the ocean floor. The reef’s plummeting cliffs and towering volcanic formations perfectly match Dominica’s massive
mountains and gorges.
- Hike to Emerald Pool fed by the mountain water rushing from a 40 foot waterfall and where the waters appear emerald green in the leafy, filtered sunlight. Located in Morne Trois Piton National Park, Emerald Pool is surrounded by verdant forest and offers swimmers and waders a cooling respite on humid days.
- Relax in the Wotten Waven hot springs, well-known for their natural hot sulphur water and mud pools that are believed to have medicinal qualities. They offer a relaxing and reviving experience after a long day hiking and visitors
can wallow in open-air pools surrounded by lovely gardens.
- Visit the Botanical Gardens in the city of Roseau, a 40 acre oasis and home to over 50 types of indigenous plants and imported trees as well as the Sisserou Parrot, the National Bird of Dominica.
- Sunbathe and swim at Batibou Beach – perhaps the most beautiful beach on the island with towering coconut trees and beautiful clean white sand. It’s a great place for a swim, a snorkel or just to soak up the sun.
