Waitukubuli – Original Name of The Nature Island of the Caribbean

The Nature Island. Dominica’s nickname is well-earned, for obvious reasons. The Kalinago people who originally inhabited the island, though, had a different name for their home. Waitukubuli. The word translates to “tall is her body.” This fits, of course. Dominica is a good bit taller (29.2 miles north-south) than it is wide (18 miles).

No matter where you roam in Waitukubuli, though, expect to be awed and inspired.  The collection of incredible natural wonders here is simply unmatched anywhere else in the Caribbean.
