About these ratings

The Cabrits National Park shelters a few swamps, coral reefs and wetlands near the town of Portsmouth. But it's better known as the site of Fort Shirley, an 18th century stronghold with spectacular views down to the Prince Rupert Bay and the remains of a volcanic crater on Dominica's northwest coast.

Most people who visit Dominica do so for the intensive adventure activities, but if you need a down day and have some spare film on your camera, consider taking a trip to the site. For the last four years the park and namely, Fort Shirley, has been undergoing restorations. For a minimal cost you can tour the improved grounds and enjoy the scenery.
