SAND, sea and sand is often synonymous with “summertime” in the Caribbean. Often, this atmosphere presents the perfect opportunity for a planned family getaway. School’s out; during the summer the children need to be meaningfully occupied. We understand that the first instinct may be “summer school” but even children need some getaway time.
The Island Neighbours provide the perfect spots to enjoy some old-fashioned family fun in the midst of an aura of relaxation and rejuvenation. We offer golden beaches, parks with the most nature has to offer and the most breathtaking eco-tours. Forget family fun for a moment and think of this as a learning experience for you and your family … getting to know your Neighbours. What are your summer plans?

Happenings
Here at the Island Neighbours, we are very concerned about literacy. With that in mind, the Dominica Public Library presents its annual children’s workshop on August 1, 2015. The event’s objective is to encourage reading among our youth.

Searching for the perfect beach to unwind and drift away from the stresses of everyday living? We’ve got it. Introducing Batibou Beach in Dominica…This untouched beauty is located in a remote part of Dominica a few minutes away from Melville Airport. Access to the beach is via 4WD and you should bring along your picnic basket as vending services are unavailable. We recommend that you visit this area in groups because of its remoteness.
