This coastal walk from Sea Cliff Cottages gives you a taste of the island’s beautiful scenery and is an excellent opportunity to see some of the best beaches in Dominica. The walk includes Pointe Baptiste Beach, White Sand Beach and the sparkling Black Sand Beach. This walk gives a very good opportunity to take photos, and for the less fit, is an excellent preparation for longer walks. This tour will take 3 hours.
There are two walks along syndicate nature trail, a short walk along the slopes of the mountain, through the oldest part of Dominica’s rain forest. And the long walk to the top if Dominica’s highest mountain, Morne Diablotin. The shorter walk is an easy mile long loop trail which has a parrot observatory platform allowing you to see many different birds including our beautiful parrots. This walk is best done in the early morning or late afternoon when the parrots are feeding and are most active. On the way back we can stop to take a walk to Milton Falls. This tour will take 3-4 hours.
The long walk is a rugged three hours walking up through the changing vegetation from the rain forest to the top of Morne Diablotins. On a clear day, you will be able to see the French islands of Martinique, Guadeloupe, Marie Galante and to overlook most of the beautiful villages of Dominica. This walk is the finest place to experience Dominica’s rain forest and see many different birds including, of course, our beautiful parrots. The tour will take all day.
After a drive through the local village of Woodford Hill, next to Calibishie, and through banana fields, the walk will take you to the foothills of the Northern Forest Reserve to see both the Sisserou Parrot, the National Bird of Dominica, and the Jacko or Red Necked Amazon Parrot. This walk is best done in the early morning or late afternoon when the parrots are feeding and get most active. This tour will take 1 hour drive and 2 hours walk.
The "Tete Chien" or Boa Constrictor can be seen basking in the sun in the mountains above the village of Penville. High in the northern mountains, this walk has spectacular views and enables you to see the islands of Les Saintes, Guadeloupe and Marie Galante, as well as many of the villages of Dominica. The tour, which will take from 2 to 3 hours depending on the kind cooperation of the Boa Constrictors, requires good hiking boots.
The ascent to this volcanic crater could be the physical achievement of your visit to Dominica. The effort is worth it. In 1876 a visitor wrote : “Fenced in by steep, almost perpendicular banks varying from sixty to a hundred feet high, cut out in ash an pumice, the lake rages and roars like a wild beast in a cage”. Today the walk is less arduous as many of the steepest slopes have been cut into steps to help hikers and to help prevent erosion. The climb to Boiling Lake takes about three hours, and so with the journey of two hours to the start of the climb the day is long but immensely satisfying. You should take a raincoat, snacks, water, change of clothes, good hiking boots and your bathing suites to fully enjoy the day.
This tour gives you the opportunity to visit one of our most beautiful sites on a full moon night. You would have the choice between Red Rock, Emerald Pool or one of our white sand beaches, Batibou, Woodford Hill Bay or Pointe Baptiste Beach. This tour will take from about 10:00 pm to 2:30 am at night.
