Why Dominica Is One of The Best Destinations For Families

Seeking the perfect family vacation blend of relaxation and adventure where parents and kids alike make memories to last a lifetime? Look no further than Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort on Dominica. From diving expeditions to rainforest hikes, here are five reasons Fort Young tops the list for an unforgettable, family-friendly Caribbean getaway.

Underwater Marvels While Snorkeling & Diving

The protected marine reserve along Dominica’s shores provides some of the world’s best snorkeling and diving. Families can embark on beginner-friendly expeditions right in front of the hotel or challenging dives to discover vibrant coral reefs, rugged pinnacles, drop-offs and abyss depths teeming with marine life. Our on-site dive shop caters specifically to families.

Miles of Stunning Nature Trails

Lace up your hiking boots and head out to conquer the Waitukubuli National Trail, the Caribbean’s longest consecutive walking trail. Whether you wish to join us on a guided walk and learn the history of the island or trailblaze independently with your family, Fort Young Hotel is conveniently located amidst the island’s natural grandeur. And let’s not forget the storied capital of Roseau with its Victorian buildings and craft markets just outside our front door.

Family-Style Accommodations

Finding spacious, family-oriented luxury accommodations can prove challenging. At Fort Young, our new rooms and suites in the renovated historical section of the property can be interconnected, providing utmost flexibility for families and groups. Plus, they’re outfitted with all the newest luxuries and a stylish modern-meets-historic aesthetic that both kids and adults will love.

Brand-New Amenities

As of November 2023, Fort Young unveiled a full reimagination with new amenities designed to enhance your family’s Caribbean getaway. Sweat with ocean views at the new fitness center, grab pastries in the stone-walled café, discover art in the original oven gallery, play cards or video games in the work & play hub. With this exciting amenity expansion, there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
