Once again, Dominica continues to be recognized for its attributes and responsible tourism efforts. It’s for these same reasons Dominica is recognized as the 2nd most â€œPure Island,â€ in Islands Magazineâ€™s April/May 2010 issue.
Out of the 10 islands honored for their natural beauty, Dominica was the only Caribbean island that was acknowledged.
Dominicaâ€™s rippling waterfalls, freshwater lakes, the worldâ€™s second largest boiling lake and thick rain-forests, give reason to why this island is known as â€œthe Nature Islandâ€ of the Caribbean.
Islands Magazine ranked the top 10 islands based on the destinationâ€™s efforts to preserve culture and ecology with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, national parks, sustainable opportunities for responsible travelers, and from their firsthand knowledge and experiences, along with Sustainable Travel International, local tour operators and Islands readers.
It’s clear that Dominicaâ€™s pristine environment continues to shine as â€œthe Nature Islandâ€ of the Caribbean.
