National Parks

With much of the island uninhabited, a large part of Dominica has been allocated to National Parks. A visit to the Morne Trois Pitons National Park (declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997) is a must. The Park boasts five volcanoes, freshwater lakes, hot springs and waterfalls including the famous Trafalgar Falls. Close to Secret Bay are the fabulous Morne Diablotin National Park as well as the well-maintained Fort Shirley in Cabrits National Park, beautifully situated on a peninsula, overlooking Portsmouth and Secret Bay in the distance.
