Best Beaches in Dominica

1. Mero Beach

Smooth Operator

Showcasing luscious grey volcanic sands and glassy water, Mero Beach is the prime beach spot near the town of Roseau, and a welcome alternative to the island's many rocky beaches.

On days when cruise ships dock, it's peppered with tourists entranced by the beautiful scenery and warm water. Sundays, too, are busy — that's when locals come to cook out and relax on their days off.


Part of Mero Beach's appeal, aside from its natural attributes, is the handful of beachfront restaurants where you can enjoy local and international fare along with ocean views.

Romance Café and Merokai Beach Bar are great choices; head to Sardonyx Restaurant and Bar on Edward Oliver LeBlanc Highway for an upscale experience. No matter which spot you choose, remember to order a refreshing Kubuli, the unofficial national beer.

Nearby attractions

Be sure to leave time to explore Roseau before or after your beach day. The steep cascades of Middleham Falls never fail to impress. Forty acres of greenery can be found at the Dominica Botanic Gardens, including a collection of unique trees and flowers. Even more lushness awaits at Papillote Tropical Gardens, located on a mountain slope neat Trafalgar Falls.

Learn about the island's history and its Kalinago and Creole culture at the Dominica Museum. Pick up crafts and souvenirs at the Old Market of Roseau, once the island's top spot for trading.
