Purely Dominica

Purely Dominica

After so much procrastination, Liuda ( and I finally got on a bus and decided to go visit our friends Dan and Ruth Tanner in Calibishie, who are on their usual annual visit to Dominica. But by this time next year Dan and Ruth will be permanent residents of Dominica. Yep! They built a small house in Calibishie and will spend the rest of their baby boom years on this beautiful island.

Calibishie is a small village on the North-East Atlantic side of Dominica, which has developed into one of the more popular tourist base communities on the island. Maybe it’s because of the many breathe taking views and beaches nearby. The village shelters some of finest restaurants, local souvenir shops and lodging accommodations like Calibishie Lodges.

As soon as we arrived at Calibishie Dan and Ruth took us took us to one of the nearby beaches on Pointe Baptiste. It’s so beautiful there. Take a look!






Now I understand why Dan and his wife Ruth made Calibishie their choice to spend their remaining years. The Tanners are not the only Americans who have expatriated from the U.S and made Dominica their new home. There are also fellow bloggers like Jennifer and her husband (Mr. Wizard) of living Dominica and Paul of Living Island. There is just something magical about this island that makes you always wanting to come back. Here is a open invitation…come experience Dominica for yourself 🙂

Calibishie and the Northeast Coast of Dominica are truly beautiful. Great beaches, beautiful coastline, red rocks, beautiful turquoise seas and greenery galore. At this point, not a lot of really comfortable places to stay. Calibishie Lodges is decent but can get hot at night, as they are on the wrong side of the hill for the breeze. There is a great new place opening in August, Calibishie Cove,, that looks like it is going to be quite luxurious with amazing views and designed for great breezes and total comfort day and night.
Hope to check it out finished on our next visit.

Great little lodge (is that the right description?) right on the edge of Calibishie. We rented a 2 bedroom with own kitchen, balcony overlooking a lovely Island close to shore and helpful easy going landlord Trevor and his 2 lovely kids Rian and Ethan. The room cost $80 US for 3 people.

There is a walk down to a great beach with a river running into a bay with eagles, parrots and hawks with coconuts growing everywhere. It really was Eden.

We visited the Kalinago people, had lunch at Pagua Bay restaurant and drank beers at Randy’s – a local guy that was a Chippendale that strips once every while for the Calibishie landladies (so they tell me).

We only had 2 days but felt that we got a great taste of Island life. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bay View to anyone.

My family and I went to Dominica last year and stayed at a small cottage in Calibishie. The views were amazing!!! The beaches were lovely, and so were the people. We bought a lot in Calibishie and can’t wait to build a home there. The area is a new development and should provide more comfortable places to stay in the future. As fellow Americans, it was a bit of an adjustment but otherwise it’s a great place to visit.
