Stretching 751 km² (290 square miles), our island boasts 148 km (91 miles) of coastal line. Dominica’s official name is the ‘Commonwealth of Dominica,’ which is mostly referenced in official communications and to further distinguish the island from the Dominican Republic, its northerly Caribbean sister.
