Fodor's Expert Review Morne aux Diables

Elsewhere on Dominica Free

Translated to "Devil's Peak," this dormant volcano dominates the northern end of the island, rising 2,826 feet above sea level and sloping down to Toucari Bay and Douglas Bay just north of Portsmouth. A trail—a strenuous four-hour hike—starts at Tanetane, near Portsmouth, and ends at Vielle Case on the northeast coast. The access road, which is long and rough, twists by coconut, cocoa, and banana groves; passes by fern-festooned embankments and bubbling sulphur springs. It continues over rivers and through villages with brightly painted wooden houses that are almost as colorful as all the flora and fauna.
