... rub the white sulfur mud in masks on their face. We follow suit.
We saw the giant steam cloud from the lake miles ago, and have been journeying toward it, slipping down mountainsides and crossing multiple streams.
Boiling lake does not disappoint. It's tremendous. Huge, no one knows how deep it is. It's too hot to measure. Out in the center is a giant, constantly churning boil. The sulfur cloud is so thick at times, it obscures the entire lake.
I try ...
... times but the sting really wasn't that bad. Champagne Reef got it's name from air bubbles that are constantly escaping from the earth and bubbling to the surface - just like snorkeling in champagne. The reef and fishes were really quite good at this site.
From there we drove to to a lookout of Roseau and drove thru the botanical gardens. Next we drove to ...
31 March 2012 – Dominica
It's pouring with rain. When it rains in rain forest countries, it’s pretty serious business. They seem to cope with the flooding very well but it means the roads and buildings suffer all kinds of damage throughout the year, making it look very weathered. The little town Rosseau where we stop is interesting but dangerous to walk around. Dangerous mostly because the pavements and roads are ...
... As the hours ticked by and the hill became this vertical incline there was more huffing and a little more puffing. Not really absorbing the true nature of what it was that we were embarking on, we didn't provision for the gruelling hike and we were fast running out of water. We finally made it up to the top of the lip of the crater. We are the best, sweet.

We had a visitor when we got back--Shernice, the manager's niece came to visit and to see my computer and camera. She was excited that her photo was taken. She was helping me write this story, and I couldn't remember the name of the soup we had for lunch, so I asked her what soup she eats on the island. Her response, "I eat alphabet soup"! Too cute. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beau Rive Dominica
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
