Travel Update Summer 2020: Most destinations, sites and parks reopened with limitations. Check the official websites and read our crucial ‘BEST TIME TO GO' and ‘AVOIDING THE CROWDS’ tips:
Batibou in the north of Dominica is a hidden gem and difficult to find. That's why it's not crowded, regardless of the season and month. It's a rough road to the beach even more difficult to drive after heavy rainfall in the wet season.
Climate and Enviroment:
Best months are during the dry season from December until April. This is also the peak tourist season on Dominica. However, Batibou Beach won't be crowded even in high season. May is also possible: Less tourists on the island in general but also very hot and humid. Rainy season is from June to November with the possibilities of hurricanes and flash floods.
Batibou is the Kalinago word for bay. It is still a hidden jewel and not very well known beach in the north of Dominica. A gravel road which keeps people away leads to this marvelous beach with palm trees. The last part of the gravel road is in very bad conditions and it is better to walk for about 20 minutes. It is a nice beach for swimming. Bring your own food and water in case the bar is closed especially in the low season (rainy season). The bar with BBQ is ran by a family. The admission is 5 $ therefore the beach is clean and there is a security guard when the bar is open. The grilled fish and cheese cake are delicious.
