The 290 square mile island of Dominica lies between Martinique and Guadeloupe in the eastern Caribbean and is the largest and most mountainous of the English speaking Windward Islands. Discovered by Columbus on a Sunday (hence its name), Dominica was once inhabited by fierce Carib Indians and is still home to 3,000 of their descendants.
Travel from Roseau or Portsmouth into the island's exotic tropical interior - which soars to over 4000 feet and discover a wonderful environment of dense (and now protected) rainforest, rich flora and fauna, deep lakes, glittering waterfalls and fast-flowing rivers quite unlike any of its neighbours. The highest point is Morne Diablotin (1,447 m/4,747 ft). There are many rivers flowing off the steep mountainsides, with lots of waterfalls. The highest lake is Boeri, between Morne Macaque and Morne Trois Pitons. Boiling Lake (92° C) is one of the largest thermal lakes in the world. The valley below it is known as the Valley of Desolation because of the devastation to the forest caused by the sulphurous gases. Glide through a steamy orchid-festooned rainforest in a fascinating boat ride up the winding Layrou River. Alternatively, hike to breathtaking Trafalgar Falls and a bubbling lake.
