Dominica: The Ultimate Summer Vacation Destination

Travel trends show that summer vacation is no longer simply about getting away; it’s about getting to an environment that fosters a change in perspective. More and more, travellers are seeking holidays that inspire, and no setting is more inspiring than the Nature Island. For those who wish to disconnect from reality and, instead, connect with one another, Dominica proves to be the perfect summer destination, brimming with unforgettable adventure, culture and history. So, if it’s an enriched vacation that you and yours desire, clear your schedules and plan your summer visit today.

Unlimited Adventure

Modern day explorers are seeking something more from their vacations: rich experiences, inspired stays, memory-making moments. Luckily, the Nature Island is host to boundless adventure and guests at Fort Young Hotel have direct access to Dominica’s lush and abounding landscape—the gateway to it all.

Rainforest Waterfalls

Complete with 365 rivers, 12 waterfalls, a volcanic National Park and an overflowing rainforest, the opportunities to explore are endless. Embark upon a canyoning excursion into the magical depths of the island, accompany birders and ornithologists on a guided nature hike to spot Sisserou Parrots, plan a snorkeling trip or dive right off the dock in front of the hotel, witness the incredible Trafalgar twin waterfalls while you dip in the hot spring. At Fort Young, memories are simply waiting to be had.

Bountiful Culture

While Dominica is known for its astounding natural bounty, the island is likewise home to an incredibly rich culture. At Fort Young Hotel, guests are just a minute’s walk from Roseau’s cultural vibrancy and local craft markets. On Saturday mornings, you can explore the aisles of the farmer’s market where stalls are piled high with tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers and local spices, offering a glimpse into the colorful and healthy lifestyle that Dominica affords. Or, visit the Kalinago Barana Auté (Cultural Village) and meander the craft aisles for beautifully woven and traditional straw baskets. You and yours will surely be amazed by the island’s exuberance.

Rich History

Fort Young Hotel is a crucial piece of history in and of itself, dating back to 1699 as the island’s sole military fort. Located in Roseau, the island’s capital and largest city, Fort Young Hotel is also central to the history of the storied Kalinago territory, making Roseau the oldest and most significant urban settlement in Dominica. And, just a drive away lies Cabrits National Park—a sure historian’s haven. Considered one of Dominica’s most important landmarks, Fort Shirley protected the island from several British and French invasions. Here, you’ll be transported to the island’s deep past and have the opportunity to wander amongst the garrison’s ins and outs. And, after a day of exploration, you will have the chance to return to the island’s most historical hotel. Each experience is a gateway to an enriched getaway.
