An environmental pioneer on Dominica, our eco-resort built the island’s first wind turbine and founded the nation’s sea turtle conservation program. This program has changed the culture of Dominica, saved hundreds of endangered sea turtles and earned a Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award.
Rosalie Bay partnered with WIDECAST (Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Network) and other organizations to establish a sea turtle conservation program on Dominica. This successful effort began on our black sand beach and is now island-wide, and has significantly increased the survival rate of Leatherback, Green and Hawksbill sea turtles.
Rosalie Bay was originally built by hand by locals using sustainable and recyclable materials, such as LED lights, chairs made from recycled milk jugs and sustainably produced cotton sheets. Today, our eco-resort continues to be a major source of employment for local villagers and supporter of local businesses on Dominica.
