“A piece of paradise just for ourselves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was our favourite beach, ideal for relaxing on the shade, or sun bathing, water is crystal clear, and we were the only ones there, unbelievable! Highly recommended.

“Batibou Beach - Safe Again!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Thank you to the Douglas family for making Batibou Beach safe again!! An unobtrusive little hut that melts in the background sells drinks, BBQ chicken and/or fish, sandwiches and voilà, the criminals have disappeared. We can enjoy Dominica's best beach again. Fabulous!

Oh and by the way, they are building a bathroom/change room in the bushes.

“It's the bomb!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

You can bring your stuff to cook a meal on the beach; there's plenty of coconut husks and palm fronds to make a fire; very Robinson Crusoe- like! And now there's a beach bar. Perfect!!

“WHAT A FIND!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

OMG... this IS indeed the best beach on the island. If you didn't know, you'd drive right by the faded sign. It's quite a drive to access....but SO worth it. There's a beverage hut too!!

“Unbelievably gorgeous and yes! It's safe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We visited Batibou Beach twice on our recent visit to Dominica, and I'm so glad we did. Soft, powdery sand, swaying palms, warm water and gentle surf add up to total bliss. Adventurous types can take a little hike around the rocks at the far end of the beach (proper footwear recommended). Locals and ex-pats alike had given us mixed reports about whether it was indeed safe to go there (given recent robberies and other unsavory events) without a guide. Rest assured, the family that owns this property are on site daily from 11-6 keeping an eye on everything, so you WILL NOT have any problems. There is now a little bar/restaurant with some basic food offerings and refreshments, but if you want to be guaranteed lunch, call ahead and let them know you are coming. The tourist office in Calibishie has the owner's cell phone number. Batibou is THE most beautiful beach I've stepped foot on, and both days we visited we had it pretty much to ourselves. If you're visiting the Calibishie area, don't deprive yourself of a visit to Batibou!
