Dominica Rides Year Of The Pirate

Where: Dominica
May 8, 2007 at 10:55 AM | by | ()

Late last year we told you Dominica had all the makings of a classic "it" travel destination.

Island, beaches, waterfalls, eco-tourism, dive sites, and river tubing--that should do it right? Well, in this day in age you need a reality television series to create the perfect tourism storm, and starting May 31, Dominica will get its reality series.

Mark Burnett's new TV Reality series "Pirate Master" was filmed in Dominica in March and April, 2007. The show is some sort of pirate adventure loosely based on the old Henry Steel legend. Basically, he or she who proves to be the hardiest pirate will walk away with $1 million.

This isn't Dominica's first time under the pop culture spotlight--Pirates of the Caribbean II and III were also filmed, in part, on the island.

Getting There
You can connect to DOM via Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia and San Juan.

Dominica is also served by two high-speed ferries from Martinique, Guadeloupe and St. Lucia. The Ferry Terminal is located in the capital, Roseau.

Where to Stay
Jungle Bay Resort is Dominica's chicest lodge.
