About this book
Bradt’s Dominica is the only standalone guide available to this Caribbean nature island, a place of unbridled, off-the-beaten-path adventure and discovery. Author Paul Crask has lived on Dominica for over ten years and his guide, considered by many to be a traveller’s bible to the island, is rich in detail, both in terms of background and practical information for explorers, eco-tourists and culture vultures, making it the most respected, in-depth and comprehensive guide available. No other book has such personal, on-the-ground information as this.
For this new third edition there are detailed descriptions of even more hikes and natural attractions, including the iconic Boiling Lake; more selective and in-depth accommodation and dining listings; plus extensive guide and tour operator listings. The guide also includes the 14-segment, 200km Wai’tukubuli National Trail, the only one of its kind in the eastern Caribbean.
Tiny but perfectly formed Dominica is one of the most naturally dramatic islands of the Lesser Antilles. This beautiful island with its verdant mountains, lush valleys and dense tropical rainforests is still off the mass-tourism trail. However, cruise ships, hikers, scuba divers and nature lovers are starting to discover this gorgeous ‘Nature Island of the Caribbean’.
