The Nature Isle


The island of Dominica (Dom-in-ee-ka), known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean, is located between the two French Islands of Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south.  Despite of the closeness to these island the main language spoken is English, we also speak Creole (Patois), which is a combination of French, African and English.  The island is about 29 miles long and 16 miles across at it's largest point, with an areas of 289 sq miles (749 sq KM). 

Dominica is rich in its untouched natural beauty, with more than fifty percent (50%) of the island is still covered with lush tropical vegetation.  The topography of the island is very mountainous, because of this; we are richly blessed with our many rivers, waterfalls and lakes.  Dominica boasts of having three National Parks, Morne Trois Pitons National Park  is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is the first known natural heritage site in the Eastern Caribbean.  Therein lies, the one of the worlds largest Boiling Lakes, the islands second highest mountain, other lakes as well as several of our waterfalls.
