One of the most popular sights to see in Dominica is Middleham Falls & Ti Tou Gorge. Wedding guests can enjoy a beautiful hike to the falls, where they’ll find hot springs, cold springs and amazing views. It should definitely be on your “to-do” list! For those that aren’t strong swimmers, consider getting a guide.
Another gorgeous location on the island is Papillote Tropical Gardens, which is very peaceful and serene. Dominica wedding groups should bring their cameras! There are multiple types of flowers, plants and birds. There are also hot mineral pools you can relax in and a delicious restaurant where you can enjoy a meal while taking in the stunning atmosphere.
Dominica is well known for having the world’s second largest hot spring, Boiling Lake. It’s a difficult hike to get there and takes a few hours, but once you arrive, it will be worth it. The rainforest you walk through and the amazing views from the stop are unlike anything else. Relax in the hot spring because your body will need it after the walk!
Morne Trois Pitons National Park
Dominica wedding groups that enjoy nature will want to explore the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, which is where Middleham Falls and Boiling Lake are located among many other things.

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving
For Dominica wedding groups that enjoy water sports, snorkeling and scuba diving are probably on their bucket lists for when they visit the island. The water surrounding this Caribbean island provides the perfect conditions for these water sports.
