Situated overlooking the sea on Dominica's northeast coast, these five cottages are an eco tourist delight.
We are on a country lane along the sea at the far edge of the village of Calibishie. The grounds are planted with fruit trees, flowers and palms. Hummingbirds fly from blossom to blossom with their brilliant colours flashing in the sunlight. With two acres each cottage has their privacy to enjoy the outdoors.
The views are wonderful as we look down on Hodges Bay and river with the mountains to the south. The beach is about a five minute walk down the path and there you can find a small reef for snorkelling, sandy beach for swimming and a fresh water river to dive into and rinse off after your dip in the ocean.
The cottages are perfect for the more independent and selective traveller who wishes to be a part of the island experience instead of just observing it.
Sea Cliff is a place to relax, hike, swim, birdwatch and learn about the wonders of the land. Photographers and artists will be delighted with the scenery as will everyone else

There are several other beaches within walking distance for swimming as well as places to hike and explore. A lovely secluded waterfall and pool is found about three miles away which provides a perfect spot to swim and picnic. If you walk up into the hills behind Sea Cliff you will find small farms growing banana, citrus , avocado and root crops. The narrow roads wind along the top of the ridges. Parrots can be found nesting in the trees and the views looking over the mountains and down to the sea are truly breathtaking.
Woodfordhill beach and Turtle beach , about two miles away, are known for the giant sea turtles coming in to lay their eggs. An incredible sight if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time.
