Mero beach is very pretty, especially for sunset, but as one of the few beaches on the island that are (kind of) white sand, it's much more touristed than some of the other locations, and cruise ship groups tend to go here. Expect a less "Dominican" feel and a bit more like you can be anywhere in the Caribbean. Recommend as a sunset stop when heading back from exploring.

Visited here independently while on a cruise. Taxi was about $10 US and takes about 25 minutes from the pier. There are facilities here for food, drink and changing as well as various vendors for massages, crafts, etc.

The day we were there the sea was rather rough and while it was a steep beach waves were still washing up over the berm. The beach is a black sand beach as the island is largely volcanic.

Weather was perfect to spend the day at this beach.

The black sand they say is good for your skin l had heard and l watched a few people scrubbing themselves with and washing it off in the salty sea including myself and my skin felt lovely and smooth.

There are areas to have food including fried chicken, bakes and plantain and washing it down with a variety of drinks while listening to music.

Sun loungers are available while you catch the sun and watch the sunset.

This is a beach which is nice for all the family

This is 25 minutes from the cruise port $10 each way by taxi. The beach is a nice size so it doesn't feel crowded. The sand is hot bring sand shoes. There are rental chairs and umbrellas and bars. Water was clear and refreshing.

This is definitely the beach to visit when in Dominica. Mero is on the west coast of the island, touched by the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The peaceful, clear aquamarine waters are warm and the beach provide the perfect setting for lovely day excursion. The surrounding vegetation and topography add to the natural beauty of the island’s most popular beach. Visit during week days since it could get crowded on the weekends!

This is a very nice beach but it needs a facelift. It has the potential to be a really nice place for visitors and locals alike. The long, black sandy beach is wonderful and the blue waters are calm enough for both swimmers and non-swimmers. However, it needs new bathroom and change room facilities and maybe a new restaurant and bar on the beach. Loved it all the same.

Whether you are a beach person or not, do add Mero to your list of thing you want to do in Dominica. Mero village/beach is one pretty spot. High green hills at the back of the beach and the blue Caribbean Sea washes its shore.

Mero village/beach has changed progressively over the years and is changing every visit. On the hills overlooking the beach are some lovely built houses manly owned by Dominican British expats. The beach area has improved beyond recognition and is now well patronised by locals in particular as well as the many tourists bussed there my maxi taxis. Only a few years ago the infrastructure including places to eat/drink and beach facilities were rudimentary. No longer so. The beach is clean and well kept and now you can sunbathe under coconut hut or do so under open sky. Another improvement is the choice of food. Whereas previously the choices weren't great, but now you can choose from local/creole food to a sit down meal at the so-called French restaurant/bar that now dominates that part of the beach. The food and service good, but not at all cheap. If you want non French food, then try the smoked Marlin salad with a cold Kubuli or Carib "beer". Normally I like to patronise the local providers so filled fried bake with salt fish or a local stew or fried fish. Annoyingly now is with the growth of the increase in tourist numbers, most of the food outlets now sell fried chicken and French fries. Modern city life has now reached this idyllic spot, unheard of 5-10 years ago.

Still, if you can overlook this and just consume the overall environment of clean beach and sea/clear skies and the lovely topography, then surely you need to add this experience to your things to do.

While Mero beach is the best beach on Dominica, it cannot compete with the white sand beaches on other Caribbean islands. Due to Dominica’s volcanic nature, Mero beach is a grey sand beach. When the sun is shining, the sand heats up quickly and makes it difficult to walk on. Mero beach can be reached by taxi. For round trip fares of $20 per person for more than 2 passengers ($25 for 2 persons) from the cruise port the driver will wait for you until you are ready to return.
The beach has good swimming; snorkeling is OK and there is a restaurant.
Long story short: If you are on Dominica and want to swim, then go to Mero beach.

We just got off Carnival Liberty and for my first time we had to substitute a port. It was too windy to go to St Kitts so we went to Dominica. I had NO IDEA what to do or where to go when we went here, I had not researched this port. We got off the ship and were directed to this beach. This is a black sand beach. Beach bars and chairs available. The water is not that Caribbean blue water like you see on the other islands. Our kids and I had a blast snorkeling along the shoreline for all of the sea glass (broken glass from bottles that are smooth from tumbling along the tiny rocks.) We gathered a lot. It was so much fun! There are beach bars with food and drinks. The drive from the port was about 30 minutes. This is a family friendly beach, a few vendors, but they did not hound us, just showed us their jewelry. We would go here again!!!
