The islands of the eastern Caribbean have a European air about them. Gustavia on St. Barths and Saint Pierre in Martinique promise a certain French je ne sais quoi, while remnants of British rule remain in Antigua, identifiable on trips to former plantations and residences.

Your days can be spent relaxing on an abundance of idyllic beaches, exploring a rich culture and getting up, close and personal to local nature. Try the delicious sweet treats of Terre-de-Haut in Guadeloupe, experience the wonder of Soufrière’s natural hot springs, botanical gardens and waterfalls while in St. Lucia, and visit the crystal-clear lagoon of Tobago Cay National Park.

Day 4 - Îles des Saintes, Guadeloupe

Day 5 - Saint-Pierre, Martinique

Home to around 5,000 people, the village of Saint-Pierre was once almost wiped off the map in less than two minutes during an eruption of the Mount Pelée volcano in 1902. In more recent years, Saint-Pierre (also known as ‘Little Paris’) has been named as the 101st ‘City of Art and History’. A visit to Saint-Pierre will allow you to discover a few remnants of Martinique’s colonial history: the old theatre, the ruins of the island’s fort and the dungeon of Cyparis, as well as the wonderful site it is today, facing a gorgeous bay and leaning in the foothills of Mount Pelée.

The town has kept the spirit of the French colonialists who first settled there but were later followed by the British.
