Best Time To Visit: Warm weather is enjoyed year-round, but the very best time to visit is between February and April.
Key Cruising Areas: All of the island’s lush coastline can be leisurely explored by superyacht, or it can be incorporated into a larger journey through the Windward Islands.
Don’t Miss: The boiling lake, the second-largest geothermal pool in the world. Bubbling away in the heart of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, water temperatures in this wondrous lake measure upwards of 82 degrees Celsius. Fortunately, more temperate waters are also found throughout the island, from popular ‘healing’ pools at Wotten Waven, to the warm waters at Trafalgar Waterfall and Soufriere Sulphur Springs.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The décor of Islet View Restaurant and Bar may be rustic, but the views it has over Castle Bruce Bay are not. This is the place to drink rum on the island, with over 50 varieties, including their highly recommended bush rum. To eat, the rich soil of the island is perfect for growing a range of exotic produce, and many of the restaurants work with the farm to fork philosophy. Pagua Bay and Riverside café are two such restaurants, but for the best lobster on Dominica head to Poz at Calabishi Gardens.
