With its lush rain forests, spectacular waterfalls, volcanic peaks and untouched beaches, Dominica is known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean. Hidden away in the northern part of the island is the tiny village of Toucari -- a slice of heaven on Earth.

On the Keepin' It Real Beach Experience, you'll take an island bus ride along the coast, checking out the local landscapes. See some of the impact of the monstrous Hurricane Maria (2017) along the way.

Quiet and serene, Toucari Beach is your destination and the beverage that welcomes you is a locally-made rum punch.

Spend the day snorkeling, trying your hand at stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking, or simply relaxing on the white sand of the beautiful shoreline. Toucari is known for its brilliant undersea life, with electric rays, sea turtles, the wreck of an old wooden ship, and a curious natural phenomenon -- underwater bubbles created by geothermal springs.

On the beach is Keepin' It Real -- a quintessential Caribbean beach shack run by the son of Dominica's first licensed fisherwoman. A highlight of the day is a deliciously simple lunch of just-caught lobster, grilled while you wait and accompanied by a cold Kubuli beer or a fresh-squeezed local juice. Dining at Keepin' It Real involves sand between your toes and fabulous downhome fare.


The companion tour is the Keepin’ It Real Fishing Tour; you will share transportation.

Travel time to Toucari is one hour each way. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen and a hat.
