... första stoppet, sen genom Carib teritory på östsidan av ön. En och annan svart strand passerades, men havsbadandet blev på en vanlig sandstrand - härliga vågor! Lunch på ett lokalt hak intill vattnet, där vi träffade på ett engelskt par som tydligen bodde här:) Sen hann vi kika lite snabbt ...
Idag var vi uppe 6 för att hinna först till Trafalgar Falls.
2 vattenfall, ena varmt och andra kallt, med massa badställen under, sjukt najs!
Efter det åkte vi till ett ställe där man hänger i vajer 100m över ett stup och åker, ja ni hajjar nog...
Stackars A är lite sjuk fortfarande, så nu är det vila som gäller.
... var grönskan helt överväldigande, vägen slingrade sig mellan berg och dalar och fuktigheten påtaglig. Vi gjorde också en vandring till ett vattenfall med svalkande friskt vatten. Helt klart är att Martinique bleknar i jämförelse med Dominica, ön var alldeles för tätbebyggd med alldeles för många bilar. Martinique är ju en del av Frankrike, ”ett län bortom havet” som fått rikligt med EU-stöd för motorvägsbyggen och ...
Vi seglade från Fort de France Martinique mot Dominica i vetskap om att det skulle vara både vind och vågor. Härlig segling tills vi kom till udden där det som vanligt var starka fallvindar och strömmar som byter riktning så det blev till att stå ut med höga vågor och häftiga kastbyar, ett par gånger måste jag ner och bättra på sjöstuvningen, vissa lådor och luckor öppnade sig på den bogen som vi inte seglat ...

I couldn't end this blog without sharing some of the beautiful vegetation we've seen here. God has blessed this island with color and design. I am always amazed when I see what we consider houseplants growing by the side of the road, but I have seen lots of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beau Rive Dominica
"It's just good for you!!!"
If you are looking for a one-in-a-million-place, we have good news for you: You just found it. The plan of Marc, the owner of Beau Rive, was to built THE hotel, he would love to discover on a Caribbean island - and the only thing we have to add is: He fully succeeded. And his taste and feeling for a small, private and lovely hotel are just excellent! Up to now the hotel has just six rooms and Marc has planned never to have more that twelve - so you can be sure to discover a hidden place on a hidden island. It's a gorgeous place with rooms that are furnished with a lot of style - and a lounge with a piano and great jazz music. You will love to have dinner at the terrace - over viewing the wonderful bay with a palm tree that seems to grow there for the only reason to make a perfect panorama more than perfect. And Marc and his friendly team will serve the freshest and most tasty food we ever received during our two weeks stay. And afterwards he will come serving coffee or a tea from leaves from his garden where all kinds of tropical plants are growing from cinnamon to pomegranate. And you can smell the sweet Ylang Ylang flowers from your place on the terrace. My boyfriend has chosen this wonderful setting to ask me to marry him - and I can't imagine a better place. So we highly recommend you to come there - even if you don't have an engagement ring in your luggage. You will find other things to do - enjoy the view, the food, bathing in a waterfall or go snorkeling. As Marc always says: "It's just good for you!"
Leagues above anywhere else we stayed in the Caribbean, and great
value. A small hotel of exceptional charm. Extremely warm welcome and
wonderful fresh food from a genuine and charming English owner. Very
stylish but refreshingly relaxed atmosphere. Has to be the best place
to stay on this beautiful undiscovered island. Not to be missed.
Beau Rive- the jewel of Dominica.
We recently spent a wonderful week honeymooning at Beau Rive where we enjoyed views of the Atlantic, fresh air and exquisitely prepared gourmet dinners. We found lovely colonial style rooms with handmade Dominican soaps, louvered french doors opening to a veranda, the lovely scent of the ylang ylang flower gently perfuming the air, hardwood floors that your bare feet never want to leave, a gorgeous pool, three course candlelit dinners that you look forward to all day and a high level of service that you rarely find. The owner, Mark Steele, has created the most lovely escape paying attention to every last detail without creating a stale or overly precious inn. Mr. Steele can arrange excursions for you to the Carib territory, direct you to a nearby ruined 18th century sugar mill or leave you in privacy to enjoy your solitude. If you want to explore the island, rent a car and use Beau Rive as your base.
Great Location, Great Charm
I stayed at Beau Rive eaerly in June of this year. I was pleased with the laidback charm of the place, its Caribbean architecture, the comfort of the rooms, its great view of the ocean and the attentive and the caring but unobtrusive service provided...Definitely a must visit
A Breath of Fresh Air at Beau Rive
I have just returned from my holiday in Dominica and stayed at Hotel "Beau Rive". The hotel is a wonderful mixture of new and old: the clean and modern interior blends perfectly with the old plantation style of the exterior building, with its louvered shutters. The most charming feature of the hotel for me was its aspect. The view overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and gardens with fruit trees and flowers. My room was spacious and well-appointed and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Breakfast comprised of local produce and a variety of fruits, either grown in the hotel gardens or supplied by the neighbouring farms, and served on the seafront terrace which made all the more enjoyable by the view. If you value a hotel not over-run by tourists, which is improved by the owner's individual touch and flair, then I strongly recommend "Beau Rive".
High Light of My Vacation!
The day visit to Beau Rive in Dominica while on a Winter's Caribbean Cruise was the high light of the trip. A beutiful setting with lush vegitation and an incredible view from all rooms toward the sea makes this the perfect spot for todays travelers looking for that special "Get-A-Way !
Stress free holiday
we went to Castle Bruce in Dominica in June. We thought that Beaurive was extremely comfortable with a touch of class. The service was excellent, with wonderful fresh fruit everyday and wholesome meals. The veiws from the hotel were breathtaking, and if you want a holiday that is relaxing go to Beaurive. Its ideal for walkers, honeymooners, and anyone who wants a stress free holiday. Carole Hardy.
A touch of class
i have just got back from a fortnight's holiday that i shall never forget. I wanted to do something unusual this year, so I chose to go to Dominica, an unspoilt place of natural beauty, and stayed at a brand new hotel which sounded like just what I needed; and it was. The charm and character of the place sets you at ease as soon as you arrive, and the welcome I got made me comfortable immediately. the hotel is set on a lush, green hillside overlooking the Ocean. All around are mountains and trees and there was not another building in sight. rThe room was seriously spacious and I was impressed by the very high ceiling and the high standard of all the little fixtures and fittings. And the view from the balcony is awesome. I like to paint, and was inspired by the calm and beauty of the view. only natural sounds and no-one to disturb you. The host is not only real friendly, but also an excellent cook.
Although there was not a choice of meal, I was served something tasty and different every day, and got to tatse quite a few local foods that I had never even heard of. I wanted to stay at the hotel most of the time to just unwind and paint, but as the place is near to the old indian reserve, I did visit that and was amazed at the friendliness of all th local people. I am sure that i will return there some time in the future.
Great place to relax at Beau Rive
I stayed with a friend in Junefor two weeks. Hotel is perfectly set in beautiful natural surroundings. Owner has built a little haven with well decorated rooms. The owner's love of the island's is reflected in the care with which the hotel has been built and the way it has been decorated. High standard. A great place to get away from it all. I could have stayed another week easily.
The Best hotel on Dominica
How incredible it is to find such an impeccable hotel anywhere in the world, but especially in such an idyllic escape as Dominica. The views, the food, the rooms and the service are top notch. But, yet it is a very comfortable place to be and stay. A perfect getaway.
