Batibou Beach requires a rugged 15- to 30-minute hike to Dominica's north (Atlantic) shore, but your reward is a beach that's ideal for sunbathing or picnicking under the shade trees. Portions of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies were filmed at Batibou, one of the widest, longest beaches on Dominica. The isolation nearly guarantees an uncrowded day at the beach.
