  • Beautiful spot on Dominica. The locals are very friendly. Small fishing village. The snorkeling is nice here. Calm water. There is a floating buoy marking the main reef area. You can also walk up a path over the hill for a nice view and to see some old cannons as well.
  • Not a tourist place. Beautiful sight, easy hike. One may peek into local peoples daily life.
