It is a tiny and compact city in the parish of Saint George, bordered by the Caribbean Sea, the Roseau River, and Morne Bruce. It is the oldest and most prominent urban town on the island of Dominica, built on the site of the ancient Kalinago Indian hamlet of Sairi.

It is located on Dominica’s west (leeward) shore and has a mix of contemporary and colonial French buildings.

Dominica’s most significant port for international commerce is Roseau. Bananas, bay oil, vegetables, grapefruit, oranges, and cocoa are among the products exported. The service industry contributes significantly to the local economy.

Roseau features a variety of restaurants and small stores, as well as stunning views of the mountains (to the east) and the Caribbean Sea (to the west).

Geography of Roseau

Roseau’s neighboring beauty (mainly in its so-called valley) includes Boiling Lake in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, 10.5 km (6.5 mi) east, as well as waterfalls, thermal springs, and magnificent plateaus.

Morne Bruce offers panoramic views of much of downtown Roseau as far as northward toward the Woodbridge Bay deepwater port and Fond Cole. Views of the Botanic Gardens at its foot, as well as the Caribbean Sea, are available from Morne Bruce, and they are especially beautiful when cruise lines are in dock.
