What’s New in Dominica

Dominica is known as the ‘Nature Island” for its unsurpassed natural beauty. Stunning landscapes, unique marine life and hiking trails with rewarding views are just the beginning of what this destination has to offer. Dominica is excited about what’s coming up on the island this summer.

Here are a few new initiatives and events to look out for:

New Initiatives:

The Bring-A-Friend campaign invites all Dominicans living abroad to bring, invite or send their friends, family and coworkers to visit their homeland. The person who brings the most people to Dominica will win an all-expenses paid vacation to the island for two, including round trip airfare, airport transfers, accommodation and amazing dining, transportation and adventure experiences.  The contest is open from now until October 31, 2019 and you can find more information here: https://www.dominicafestivals.com/

New Accommodations:

The award-winning Jungle Bay Resort, overlooking the Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Sanctuary is opening at the beginning of June. The resort has won numerous awards for responsible and eco-friendly tourism. It continues to focus on minimizing impact on the environment in many ways including utilizing local materials and purchasing food from nearby farmers, facilitating community members to participate in beach clean-ups, and providing guests with re-usable water bottles.
