The wet mangrove is home to a myriad of wildlife – crabs, egrets, and many other birds which grace the land.
A soothing boat ride by experienced locals is the best way to traverse the river, and any visit should involve a stop at Cobra’s beach bar for a stab at the bar’s special ‘dynamite’ rum punch.
Indian River is famous for its scene in Pirates of the Caribbean, where the Calypso Voodoo house was built and still stands today. This eerie, whimsical structure, preceded by a shaky wooden staircase creeping up from the river is a site to behold.
An Indian River Tour is a great way to experience Dominica, while being transported by stories of legend and past, on a soothing journey through the coastal forest of the island.
Not only are the rocks a site to behold, but a great place for quick exploration. Short rocky trails lead to hidden rock formations, a cozy cave and an intimate black sand beach. Red Rock is just another of the many unique natural phenomena that defines the magic that is Dominica and is a definite must-see for anyone wishing to explore the northern end of the island.
