Expanses of flora for miles and a biodiverse wildlife community capable of rivalling any tropical rainforest – these islands are up to the challenge. But there’s also so much more!
As part of our Overseas Territories Club chronicles, this week we will focus on introducing two new destinations:
St Martin, the “friendly island”
A short boat ride from the famous St. Barth’s, St. Martin offers a natural paradise that will entrance outdoor lovers just as much as culture vultures.
A natural reserve spanning over 3,000 hectares is surrounded by outstanding marinas and 37 stunning beaches. On this island also stands the village of Grand-Case in Saint-Martin, the Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean. Bon appétit!
St Martin also harbours the smallest but the most romantic destination of the Carribean: Lovers’ Beach, nestled in the rocky coastline of “Pointe Arago”, was named that way because it can only accommodate two people at a time!
French Guiana, the “Gateway to the Amazonian Rainforest”
The southernmost of the Caribbean destinations is a mecca of biodiversity. While you can explore the nature's reserves by foot, road or boat, you can also venture into the heart of the wildlife on a pirogue from the Amazon basin.
Various Natural Parks have been protecting the local wildlife. Here you can make a close encounter with the black caman, of the crocodile family, Luth turtles, or saimiri monkeys and many other rare species.
You can also immerse in the nature with all modern conveniences on a floating Eco-lodge. Choose to sleep in the open wooden cabins or in a hammock on the upper deck for the best experience. And don't miss the Touloulous! Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the representatives of these islands and our Overseas Territories Club members at our event on June 14th!
