Dominica has been named one of the World’s Greatest Places in Time magazine’s annual list of 50 extraordinary travel destinations. In singling out Dominica, Time staff write: “Sustainable tourism is a priority for this small island nation between Martinique and Guadeloupe, aiming to be the world’s first climate-resilient nation by 2030. Nicknamed the Caribbean’s nature island for its lush greenery and mountains, Dominica doesn’t have the requisite beaches of this region, but what it does have is adventure aplenty via rain forests, waterfalls, hot springs, and volcanoes.”
Time staff made particular mention of the Caribbean’s longest hiking trail, the 115-mile Waitukubuli National Trail, and the Caribbean’s only sea-kayaking trail, the Waitukubuli Sea Trail: “Kayakers can spend a week exploring the entire length of the island’s calm Caribbean coastline, paddling past dramatic cliffs and snorkeling hidden coves, or just do portions.”
“To be recognized by such a prestigious, internationally recognized publication is a true testament to the culture, natural beauty, and wonders Dominica has to offer travelers,” said the Hon. Denise Charles, minister of tourism. And Dominique Marchand, general manager of Coulibri Ridge, a resort perched atop a mountain ridge in southern Dominica also mentioned by Time, said: “This recognition validates the power of sustainable tourism and nature-inspired luxury. The tourism industry in Dominica is committed to bringing sustainability to the forefront of the travel experience, and what we have created here is a shining example of how to make it work.”
