Scott's Head is a beautiful village at the end of the road on the southwest corner of Dominica.
Scotts Head is a small isthmus on the southern tip of the island. It is also the name of the small community located there. It takes about one hour to drive from Roseau each way. Scotts Head is a great place to hike up the steep outcrop, which offers a wonderful view of the south-west coast of Dominica and the Caribbean Sea (and even the island of Martinique to the south). Villagers are curious as visitors are few.
The main road ends at a small point on a hill that provides stunning views of both Scott's Head below and Roseau to the north. The last section of the road is very rocky. Walking around the small village is a great way to see everything.
The greatest sights at Scott's Heads are underwater. Snorkels can be rented from locals but it's much cheaper to simply bring your own gear. The view from Scott's Head pinnacle is also amazing and near the top is an old fortification with rusted cannons.
Several quaint shacks along the (only) road to Roseau offer inexpensive and tasty meals and snacks.
There are also small restaurants that offer mid-level and slightly more expensive freshly caught seafood including lobster and octopus.
Bars and restaurants offer the typical Dominican fare including Kubluli beer and Soca rum. Some also sell rum from nearby islands like Martinique and Trinidad.
There are some cottages and other accommodations in Scott's Head but few are advertised extensively. As there is not much to do in the small village, more visitors stay elsewhere and simply stay for the day.
