About Dominica

Dominica (pronounced “Domineek-ah”), not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, is the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean.” The youngest island in the Lesser Antilles, Dominica is located between Guadeloupe and Martinique.

When you travel to Dominica you’ll discover an island rich in natural beauty and undisturbed
by tourism.

Dominica features eight active volcanoes, an abundance of wildlife, more than 1,200 plant species and 365 rivers that rush out to sea.

Most of the 289.5-square-mile island is covered in natural vegetation and many of the island’s 70,000 inhabitants live near the capital city of Roseau.

Dominica is committed to preserving its natural beauty and was the first country to be Green Globe Benchmarked. It is also one of the “World’s Best Ethical Destinations” according to Ethical Traveler.
