Expect breathtaking natural beauty everywhere you look. The Calibishie Coast is comprised of tall, rugged, volcanic mountains that rise dramatically above the Atlantic Ocean along Dominica's northeast coast.
Numerous freshwater rivers with waterfalls, bathing pools and rapids flow down to the sea. The coral reefs just offshore protect our sandy beaches and provide excellent snorkeling.
Agriculture and fishing are the mainstays of the economy in Dominica, particularly along the northeast coast. You can visit banana plantations, citrus groves or learn from the fishermen about life on the sea.
Expect winding mountainous roads with donkeys, cows and goats grazing at the side. There are not a lot of road signs so you often have to ask directions which can result in new acquaintances.
Expect an incredible variety of fresh fruits, unusual root crops and food from the sea. You can patronize the many village snackettes to sample some of the local specialties or get a cold drink.
Expect the relaxed pace of rural life as it used to be, where people still gather in the village streets in the evening to chat, share a drink or tell a story. A few local discos cater to the younger crowd, but only on the weekends. If your timing is right, you may catch a village feast or festival with traditional music and dancing.
Expect warm hospitality, comfortable accommodation, fresh water, good food, a natural environment and the chance to get back to the basics of life. If these are the things you seek, then the Calibishie Coast has just what you are looking for!
