Are you wondering how can you get to Dominica ?
Well you can do this by air or sea:


Dominica has two airports: the biggest of the two ia the Melville Hall Airport, 56km (35 miles) north-east of Roseau, can accommodate turbo-prop aircraft and cargo jets of up to Boeing 737 capacity. Although Melville Hall, which is one and a half hours from the city, Roseau, is much bigger, it is not an international airport. International flights from US and Europe are connected to the island through hubs in Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, Guadeloupe and Martinique and Puerto Rico usually completes the Dominican leg of these flights. There is American Eagle operating out of Puerto Rico with Liat operating all legs.

The second at Canefield, 5km (3 miles) north of Roseau, is about 10 minutes drive to Roseau, depending on traffic. However, only small aircrafts land at Canefield; mostly which a private operated.

Sea Ports: Roseau is the principal port but some tourist cruise ships occasionaly call at Portsmouth. There is a newly built cruise berth and terminal at Roseau, including a deep-water harbour at Woodbridge Bay (roll-on/roll-off facilities).
There is a newly built fishing port in Roseau and there are regular and reliable shipping links across the Caribbean region and with all major ports in the US, Canada and Europe. A 300-seat catamaran operated by L'Express des Îles ferries passengers between Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique and St. Lucia. Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors arrive on the island from Cruise Ships berthed at the Bayfront, Woodbridge Bay, and Cabrits. Captains of Yachts and Sailboats can also anchor their private yacht at any of the island's official ports, but they should check in with customs and immigration on arrival.

Looking for home on Dominica or a piece of land to build your dream home or to stay for awhile? or even better yet visit the island on-line and help make your mind up.
