My wife and I have a very limited time (4 full days) available in Dominica. We are staying at Pagua Bay in the NE and have a SUV. We are both very active and avid backpackers/hikers.
Our current thoughts are to spend:
1. A day driving around the island, visiting beaches, towns, markets, sights, etc. I am looking for interesting diversions, must-see's, quick hikes, beaches not-to-miss. Thoughts?
2. A day hiking to the Boiling Lake and the Titou Gorge. I intend to do this without a guide. Is the trailhead easy to find? Directions from Laudat?
3. Another day hiking, but where? What shouldn't be missed? A hike to the top of the Mornes Trois Pitons? A section or two of the Waitukubuli trail? Middleham or Victoria Falls? Glassy Trail? Others?
4. A beach day. Would prefer having a bar/restaurant at the beach, but aren't opposed to hiking to a secluded cove either. OK with either waves or snorkeling. Any recommendations?
Lastly, any restaurant recommendations? Interested in local cuisine/restaurants or a nice bottle of wine and a romantic dinner.
Thanks in advance.
