Mas Domnik, often known as the “Real” Mas, is a unique carnival. It combines French and African customs that are a part of Dominica’s unique cultural heritage. It is also one of the few Caribbean carnivals that occurs the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten Season.
The two-month-long Caribbean Carnival includes calypso performances, village festivals, pageants, and street parades that emphasise traditional cultural practises like the Sense or BwaBwa, drumming from the Lapeau Kabwit Bands, and Bouyon Music and fetes. The primary Carnival, or “jump up,” as it is often known, begins on Monday with J’ouvert and lasts through Tuesday night before culminating in a funeral ceremony on Ash Wednesday.

Encompassing the beaches and rocky shoreline at the southwestern tip of Virgin Gorda, The Baths is a collection of massive granite boulders as large as 40 foot in diameter, with white sand beaches and secret rock pools.
The cavernous surroundings are a result of molten rock seeping up into the existing volcanic rock layers. The molten rock did not reach the surface, so it cooled slowly and formed a hard crystalline granite layer. Further shrinkage and cracking formed blocks, which were exposed when the softer volcanic rock above eroded away. Weathering rounded the corners of the boulders to what they are today. These massive boulders are also found at Fallen and Broken Jerusalem.
