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
