Because of the geology of Dominica, the beaches are volcanic black sand or very rough rocks. Mero Beach is a volcanic black/gray sand beach. Dominica is still recovering from the hurricanes and this is the better beach on the Island. There are limited services here....More

It's OK. Wouldn't rave about the place. The food is below average and the beach help is rapatious rather than helpful, but if your emphasis is beach and quick, it's not too far from the Port - $15 in a cab.

Was fun, beach was clean. Moonlight night made it perfect. It's a well kept beach. Kudos to the people that keep it clean. Just the bar prices of drinks is abit too high.

Went with family on Easter Monday, the beach was a bit crowded but nonetheless everyone mingled together. Beautiful to watch the sunset.

Honestly love Mero beach. It is always very clean. There are a few restaurants/bars along the shore. Since hurricane Maria, some of the businesses were affected so i’m not sure if they have the Wifi up and running yet. But if you want a relaxing...More

Mero beach (1 Replies)
Hi, coming by cruise ship for approx 8 hrs, is it worth hiring a taxi and going to Mero beach? Also could anyone give me any idea how much we should pay for a round trip,and would we be able to get a driver on the day or should we arrange it beforehand? Thanks for any suggestions. Anna

Help Please - Bumpiing Tour to Do for a Family? (0 Replies)
Help trusty TA crew. My family will be going to Dominica via a cruise and we are trying to pick between Bumpiing tour options. We are a group of 10 (6 adults ranging from 65-33 and four children, 7, 6, 4 and 3). I have narrowed it down to "POOLS, FALLS AND MORE" and "ROSEAU VALLEY TREASURES". Do folks have advice what one would be best for our group and is the Champagne Reef or Mero Beach of interest/worth it? Thanks in advance.
