Waitukubuli Trail, Roseau

3.9
#5 of 8 in Trails in Dominica
If you’re looking for a challenging trek, then set off on a conquest of Waitukubuli Trail. Billed as the only long-distance trail in the Caribbean, the path is split into 14 segments, each of which could potentially take you most of a single day and can be trekked individually. The sheer length of the trail means you’ll get to see a huge variety of attractions as you travel along it. As well as the seemingly endless forests and wildlife, you’ll see sulphur springs, ruins, and various memorable views. Don’t forget to bring sturdy boots, bug spray, sunscreen, camera, and plenty of water.

Where to stay in Roseau

The nearby coastline attracts most of the attention away from Roseau itself, with most visitors choosing to stay close to the beach. Within the suburb of Pottersville you can stay at one of several mid-range bed and breakfasts, some of which have pools. Look to stay in the streets surrounding Dominica Botanic Gardens for a greener experience.
