Travel photos : Dominica 2007 : Petite Soufrière

Petite Soufrière

Petite Soufrière is a small village on the east coast of Dominica. The name is misleading as it suggests that there would be some sulphur springs in the village or in its vicinity. That is not, however, the case, although there are many sulphur springs in the other parts of the island.

The road from Castle Bruce to south ends at Petite Soufrière. The two kilometres between it and Rosalie is the last part of Dominica's east coast that is still lacking a motorable road. Hence, we took a trail around Roche Marqué cape to get to Rosalie.

Name of the village is often spelled without stress as Petite Soufriere.
