There are a number of National parks and reserves on the island. Our World Heritage Site, the 17,000 acre Morne Trois Pitons National Park contains perhaps the majority of Dominica’s above-water famous sights – several crater lakes and waterfalls, including the Emerald Pool.

The Northern Forest Reserve is another fine example of oceanic rainforest and is also famous as the home of Dominica’s national bird, the rare Sisserou Parrot.

The Cabrits National Park, just north of Portsmouth, is home to the restored Fort Shirley. It is also a marine reserve, as is the area around Scott’s Head/Soufriere at the south-western tip of the island.
