Why Dominica Tops the Charts of the Caribbean’s Most Romantic Getaways

Meet Dominica: an island renowned for its equal parts adventure and relaxation. And, believe it or not, it is this exciting dichotomy that makes for the perfect once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon or a spur-of-the-moment getaway with your significant other. Below, find out why the “Nature Island” tops the charts of the Caribbean’s most romantic retreats.

Fort Young Hotel can curate romantic experiences just for you.

From spontaneous small moments to carefully curated entire stays, Fort Young offers endless ways to spark romance during your visit. Our vow renewal package, for example, includes a two-night stay along with a wedding cake, decorated wedding arch, custom floral arrangements and pastor fees. On a smaller scale, we can arrange for a private dinner on the dock or massage and spa treatments within your room or on your balcony. 

Romance is truly in the air (and land and sea).

While the island may sometimes be overlooked in favor of better known Caribbean islands, its splendor is certainly not overshadowed. Unlike its more populated and more frequented neighbors, the island of Dominica gets to maintain an aura of mystery and seclusion. What’s more romantic than being amongst one of nature’s best-kept secrets?

Immersed in nature, self-love comes easily.

You don’t need a partner with you to feel the romance of the island, either. Romance can be felt in Dominica just by connecting with yourself and the beauty surrounding you. Rising with the sun, tuning your breath to the flow of the ocean waves, experiencing stillness with the trees.

There’s so much beauty and romance to be experienced all around the island. Whether you opt for a technology-free adventure or fill up your camera roll with pictures, a trip to Dominica is sure to leave you with unforgettable, beautiful, romanticized memories.
