Grand Bay, also called South City, the cultural capital of Dominica, is a vibrant community located along the Atlantic ocean coast in the south-east of Dominica. To its immediate south across the sea is the island of Martinique.
The village is surrounded by several scenic mountain ranges including Bois Den to the south, Palmiste to the west, Morne Plat Pays to the north-west, Morne Anglais and Morne Watt to the north, Foundland range to the north east and east. Nestled along the slopes of these mountains are the villages of Bellevue, Pichelin, Montine, Tete Morne, Grand Coulibrie, Dubique and Stowe. The main community of Grand Bay is characterized by its long narrow street called Lallay, on both sides of which the largest population resides. In addition there is Mabouchay, Back Street, Hagley, Wavin Banan, Powell and Beikua, making up the older residential area. Since Hurricane David in 1979, the village has extended to include the new communities of Geneva, Highland,Bala Park and Bolom. The total population is about 3000.
