The Commonwealth of Dominica—not to be confused with the Dominican Republic—is an active volcanic isle blanketed by rainforests. From afar, the mountains that tower 4,000 feet above the surrounding sea appear to touch the sky. Known as Nature Island, an abundance of natural attractions awaits within its 290 square miles. Extensive geothermal activity occurs above and below sea level.


Getting Ashore

Cruise ships dock at the Bayfront Pier in Roseau, Dominica’s historic capital.

Fast Fact

The island’s official name is the Commonwealth of Dominica (pronounced Dom-in-EEK-a), not to be confused with the Dominican Republic.

Port Shopping

Guaranteed stores are located in Roseau, within easy walking distance of the pier.


Trafalgar Falls

Swim in freshwater pools at the base of stunning twin waterfalls tumbling down from the jungle above.


Champagne Beach

Volcanic gases escaping from the ocean floor create the steady stream of bubbles that give this beach its name.

A 200-foot-wide steaming basin is one of the most fascinating geothermal attractions in the Caribbean.


Sulfur Springs

Take a rejuvenating mineral bath in pools fed by hot springs or soak in one of the bubbling thermal pots.
