Mero Beach

A long stretch of sand and vibrant beach life mark the ambiance of Mero Beach. Located just about twenty minutes from Dominica’s capital, Mero is a favourite for locals and visitors alike. Calm waters make this beach ideal for a swim or snorkel and the long stretch of sand is perfect for soaking in some warm Caribbean sun. Beach bars and stalls dot the shoreline, and on a busy day there is an endless flutter of live music, fresh sea food, and liquor concoctions. 

Mero is a spectacular location for anyone looking to bask in rays of sun and simply have a good old Caribbean lime on the beach.

Cabrits, Fort Shirley

Probably one of Dominica’s most important historical sites, Fort Shirley is famous for the revolt of the West India Regiment in 1802 which resulted in the freedom of all British slaves. Perched above an open bay, Fort Shirley was constructed for its important geo-political nature, serving as a defence battalion during French/British wars for ownership of the island during the colonial era.

Since then, the fort has undergone various restoration works and holds the histories of a tumultuous past within its barracks and cannons. Today, Fort Shirley is a beautiful piece of colonial architecture, perfectly poised atop a hill open to the bay below.

A visit to the fort may feel like a step back in time. As one stands next to original 18th century cannons, the scene begs visitors to delve into the wars, peoples and events which moulded the French Creole culture of Dominica.

Cold Soufriere

Bubbling from a volcanic crater within Morne Aux Diables is the Cold Soufriere. While Dominica is known for its hot springs and boiling lakes which spurt hot sulphur water from below ground, Cold Soufriere is a unique volcanic manifestation. The water here is not hot, but cold, though the same features as other hot springs are evident.

Sulphuric gas fills the air and the rock formation is marked by eerie grey, white and clay, porous stone. Acidic, healing water seeps up from the ground almost eerily trickling down into small streams and hissing at times of drought. Interesting animals populate the pools in larval stage and are quite a site for the curious traveller.

A short eight minute walk through open farm lands will get you there and Dominica’s Cold Soufriere is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in observing unique earth forms.

Red Rock

Shaped by ocean and rugged Caribbean weather is the unique formation of reddish, clay earth known as Red Rock. This uncommon rock formation lies on the north eastern coast in Calibishie,  and is indeed visually orgasmic. During sunrise and set, the rocks seem to glow beneath the sun’s rays, as white waves tumble violently along their edge. At dusk, the sun descends behind the mountains, shedding a soft backlight behind the cliffs, which blaze red beneath its glow.

Not only are the rocks a site to behold, but Red Rock is a great place for exploration. Short rocky trails lead to hidden rock formations, a cozy cave and an intimate white sand beach. Red Rock is just another of the many unique, natural phenomena that define the magic that is Dominica and is a must-see for anyone wishing to explore the northern end of the island.

  • 10 friends took a tour with Nahgi and Brany and we considered it to be a highlight of our 7 day cruise to 6 islands. We highly recommend this tour group and the Get Wet, Set Tour. We'll use Nahgi and Brany again when return to Dominica.

  • We have had the privilege of visiting all but a few of the islands in the Caribbean. Last year we spent a day with our guide Nahgie at Just Go Dominica. It was beyond any doubt the best excursion we had ever done off a cruise ship. In fact it was so incredible that we booked the same exact cruise this year to be able to spend a second day on the island with Nahgie! We now consider him a friend and look forward to being with him again.

    Here are the things that made these two tours so special and that make this business among the best you will find:

    — Great Communication. From the first time I contacted Just Go Dominica, they were prompt and detailed in all their responses.

    —Reaonable Rates. We did a private excursion and have spent more on large group excursions. Very fair pricing. If you go I would encourage you to be sure to tip well! With the prices they charge and the service they give it’s the right thing to do.

    — The Island. Wow! Don’t be put off by the port itself. The hurricane a few years ago devastated the island and it’s obviously not recovered yet. But once you get away from the port you will be in paradise. The waterfalls, the jungle, the views and the diversity of things to do. Just amazing.

    — The Service. The personal touches of our tours were beyond wonderful. Our guide would stop and show us plants and spices and fruits, some of which we had never experienced before. He brought us to places like Titou Gorge and safely led us on an adventure we loved so much we repeated it with him this year. Hard to explain how amazing Titou Gorge is (where they filmed parts of Pirates of the Caribbean). Don’t miss it and if you are brave jump off the cliff to go in rather than just swim! Kayaking on a completely deserted Mountain Lake. Swimming in water falls with almost no one else there. Eating a homemade island lunch. Snorkeling at Champagne reef. Unreal. Finishing the day with an amazing dip in a very hot natural volcanic hot tub.

    We still feel like we have only scratched the surface of this island. But we will never forget it. My goal is to go back on a land-based trip and try out the scuba diving which is supposed to be legendary and do more exploration with our new friend.

    I hope others get to experience this beautiful island and the unparalleled service of Just Go Dominica!

  • My hubby and i did the boiling lake hiking trip which was recomended by our hotel host.
    Arrangements were made the day before, we were told what time we should be ready as our tour guide would come to pick us up.
    Thus is when we met our tour guide Nahjie, He was on time and our trip started it was about 30 minutes drive from our hotel to the point of trekking.
    One important highlight here is if you're not in good shape meaning health wise this trip is not for you.
    The time spent on this trip app 8 hrs we are on the older side so it took us longer, however i must commend this young man on the great job he did in taking care of us through out the entire trip.
    NAHJIE is a true professional and very dedicated in what he does not to mention very knowledgeable in what he does as a tour guide, darn his energy is like a young stallion.
    He took time to guide and inform us of areas , plants , history etc.
    We were running out of time and i was beginning to get worried but he assured me that if night step in and we are not through he would call for back up and extra lights , that at was a relief to my being..since we are 48 and 64.
    Unfortunately we did not make it directly to the end of the lake , that where the water flows i think because it was getting late and we were more concerned getting back out to starting point, so we started trekking back out ahead of the two others.
    It rained during that time so that made it even harder ,NAHJIE did explain to us though that after Hurricane maria in 20 17 the trail was ruined and nothing was done to maintain it. I must say for me is was rough trekking.
    It was an experience and a great achievement. We did it and made it through safely with the help and guidance of this wonderful fella ( NAHJIE)
    When we finally made it back to our starting point we were happy and felt a flash of relief.
    Nahjie took us to get some thing to eat and back to the hotel.
    We also had the pleasure of riding wit him back the the airport the following day.
    My take on this review altogether is ,boiling lake is a wonder of the world I recommend you to see if you plan to visit Dominica, its a one in a life time thing to do.
    Second please do not hesitate to take that opportunity to meet and allow NAHJIE to be your guide.
    You sure would have a great time and memories of a life time.Dominica

  • Absolute highlight of our Caribbean vacations

    My girlfriend and I traveled Dominica this June for 1 week. We did not want to rent a car and had basicly no idea how to travel, get food or find the beautiful places there. But this is non of a problem if you go with Naghie. He is a terrific, relaxed and young guide who truly lives with his wife & little son the beauty of Dominica. We spend 3 days with him hiking the boiling lake, seeing Victoria Falls and Emerald Pools and snorcheling in the champange reef! Naghie picked us up in the morning and brought us back every evening. Even sitting in the car with him is amazing. He knows a lot about the history, the nature and the secret places you definitely miss if you are on your own. Dominica's nature is just a outstanding and everything you need to escape from everyday life! We can guarantee going with Naghie will be one of the best things you can do on Dominica!

  • Really, look no further!

    I'm just going to be one more person adding on to the 5 star reviews here for the one and only Nahjie (and Nicky!), and if it's not clear to you already, please understand this is the person you need to get in touch with when you come to The Nature Island that is Dominica.

    We were fortunate enough to stay in his hand built cabin on the mountainside of Laudat, where you can escape all things city, and really live in the nature. And while we did plenty of things on our own (with his input of course), the one day we did spend with him was an absolute pleasure, leaving us wanting more! He is third generation island boy, who loves the island and her beauties, and takes great joy in sharing that with others. It's hard to stress how much your trip should have this man involved in it.

    I've traveled throughout the world quite a bit, slowly and intimately, meeting and getting to know locals and travelers alike. Nahjie is one of the special ones who will without a doubt stand out.

    My only regret is not spending more time with these guys doing ALL the things, but that requires more than just 4 or 5 days on this island. I'll definitely be back for more.

  • The Get Set Wet tour with Nahgie was a fantastic, thrilling, and unique experience! We got to enjoy local food, snorkel on pristine coral reefs, and have great conversations with Nahgie. Nahgie was welcoming, energetic, patient, and helped us make the most of our one day on Dominica! We loved meeting his dad and getting a small sense of life on this beautiful island! Highly recommend!

  • Look no further, I wish I could give 10 stars

    I am really glad we booked with Nahgi and Brany the boiling lake hike.
    It is a very challenging hike, even though we are experienced hikers.
    But our tour guide Brany was really helpful, encouraging, and very knowledgable. Talked about history, geography and the flora and fauna on the way.
    When you meet Nahgi and his team you can see on them,they love what they do, they are not after your money but genuinely want to show you their beloved country and they want you to have a good time.
    I'm so happy we came across Just Go Dominica, and please don't look further, this is your company to do an adventure with.
