Soufriere Scottshead Marine Reserve, Scotts Head

#16 of 31 in Wildlife in Dominica
Observe the picturesque multicolored houses in the fishing village of Soufriere Scottshead Marine Reserve, a World Heritage Site where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Take a hike to the point for stunning views of both oceans, and snorkel in these protected waters to find a vast quantity of marine life and corals. If you're feeling brave, snorkel a short way out to witness a dramatic drop off into the depths and note the differing life there. Be aware that occasionally pushy and uncertified guides roam nearby, and you won't need one to enjoy this lovely environment.
