Day 1 Island: Saint Lucia Nickname: Helen of the West Indies Local Beer: Piton – after the twin peaks What I liked most: the topography, villages and the general atmosphere which is very similar to Grenada; only more developed. PITONS … Continue reading →
A relatively short but bumpy drive from the main road takes you to the Crochu harbour point in St. David- the location of Cabier Ocean Lodge. where you have a 180 degree view of the sea. Although St David is the only parish which lacks a town it makes up in cozy points with great potential for beautiful developments.
I had the pleasure of visiting the lodge after Caribbean Youth Environment Network CYEN hosted a sargassum beach clean up of the nearby Cabier beach for World Oceans Day celebrated on June 9th.

The most easily accessible waterfall on the island is located 6 minutes from the town of St George with a short walk in from the main road. It’s the ideal outing if you’re not looking to get dirty. Mini photoshoot … Continue reading →
From the moment I saw pictures of thin the lush green hills of Nettle Point of St. Mark lies a hidden gem. Established in 1763, it is one of the few plantation estates still in operation, and it’s picturesque antique … Continue reading →

Located at the south of the island, less than 5 minutes drive from the airport is one of Grenada’s finest white sand beaches with calm and extremely warm waters. On the secluded beach front lies one of Grenada’s most romantic cottage boutique hotels La Luna. Adjacent to it is the Beach House restaurant known for its idyllic ambience particularly at sunset into the night. Continue reading →
After a fun-filled day of exploring the Tobago Cays on Saturday, we ventured over to Petit Saint Vincent on Mother’s Day for breakfast. The food was delicious and quite fulling. Thanks Bev 🙂
The staff was gracious enough to give us a tour of the island paradise where most couples visit for some RnR. What I love most about the island is the sense of seclusion given that the cabins are separated from each other by a generous distance. There is no internet nor television and any requests/orders are made by the ‘flag system’. The telephone is only used in case of an emergency. After our tour we lounged on the beach and thought how lucky are we?

Petit Martinique in the distance. Most of the staff live there and are transported over by boat everyday.

In less than 2 months I have had the pleasure of experiencing the wonders of the Grenadines more specifically the Tobago Cays; one less thing on my bucket list. On this second time around the trip was much shorter but nonetheless exciting.
The flight from Grenada to Carriacou via SVG Air was smooth although the landing got a bit shaky. The view was spectacular. Instead of a sail boat (Savvys Sailing) we went via speed boat on Simply Carriacou Island Tours. Our ride up to the Cays was a very bumpy one but our captain assured us that the boat was made to ride the waves best.
The Tobago Cays is a Marine protected area that consists of 5 uninhabited islands. It’s most prominent feature is its picturesque turquoise waters. The main inhabitants on these islands are iguanas and birds. Out of all of the islands, Baradal is most fascinating since its located on the boundary of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. As you walk towards the Atlantic side you can feel a slight difference in the temperature. We devoured our scrumptious lunch on Petit Bateau compliments Chef MandyMan- best Lambi anyone ever had.
