If you walk up into the hills behind Sea Cliff you will find small farms growing banana, citrus , avocado and root crops. The narrow roads wind along the top of the ridges. Parrots can be found nesting in the trees and the views looking over the mountains and down to the sea are truly breathtaking.

  • Our stay at Seacliff cottage was great, Gweneth who gave us the keys was very friendly and the view on the ocean is beautifull! The beach and the river just down the cottage are gorgeous and very quiet. Thanks to the solar electricity we had hot water and light even during a tropical storm that shut down a lot of electricity on the island! Calibishie is a quiet village full of friendly people, and it's a good spot to visit the North and East of Dominica. The first night we didn't cook at home so we went to the Bamboo restaurant, it's on your right when you arrive to the village. Many delicious dishes to taste and their owner are very nice...
