Pinel Island

Just a 5-minute boat ride from the Cul-de-Sac jetty lies the enchanting Pinel Island. With two distinct beaches, it caters to diverse tastes. On one side, a well-sheltered strip of sand hosts the charming Le Karibuni and Yellow Beach restaurants, offering delightful Caribbean specialties. The other, a stony wilderness, remains untouched. A 10-minute walk reveals this pristine paradise, perfect for those seeking solitude and a connection with nature. Snorkeling enthusiasts will be thrilled by the underwater wonders at the Nature Reserve’s snorkeling trail, showcasing the beauty of marine life beneath the crystal-clear waters.

Venture 2 miles or about 15 minutes northeast of St. Martin, and you’ll discover the tranquil haven of the uninhabited island of Tintamarre. A deserted beach paradise, accessible by private or public boats, awaits. The absence of restaurants and any facilities emphasizes the island’s wild beauty. White Bay, on the west side, offers a stretch of white sand and vibrant marine life for those seeking a Robinson Crusoe experience. It’s very likely you’ll spot a few turtles swimming in the crystal-clear waters. Diving enthusiasts can explore a shipwreck near the beach, adding a touch of adventure to the serene landscape.

Nestled conveniently across from St. Martin, Anguilla beckons with its tranquility and crystal-clear waters. A short half-hour boat ride or public ferry journey reveals a landscape of untouched beaches and tiny offshore islands. Meads Bay and Maunday’s Bay showcase the beauty of Anguilla, with luxurious accommodations and beachfront restaurants like Bamboo Bar and Grill at the Four Seasons Hotel and Uchu at the Cap Juluca Belmond Hotel. A visit to the tiny (250×75 meters) Sandy Island Anguilla, boasting a single restaurant, adds a touch of seclusion to your culinary journey.
