Beaches of the Nature Isle
Rugged sandy beaches on the eastern coast
Where to swim, snorkel, surf, or sunbathe
Dominica has a number of beautiful beaches scattered along the East and West coasts. Where the east is rugged and windblown from the constant trade winds, the west is calm and drier. Most beaches are stone or sand, ranging from a whitish/grey sand to black, a reminder of the youth of the island and it’s volcanic origins.
Swimming can occur at most beaches, or really anywhere there is access to the sea along the West Coast. However, this is not the case along the Eastern Coast. Due to rip currents and undertows, one must exercise extreme caution and only swim where recommended. Find out more…
