Considered a paradise-like destination par excellence in the Lesser Antilles, the island has a lot to offer to visitors, no matter where they come from. Locals say that they will fall in love with the site and come back over and over again.
There are some highlights in terms of general view or exclusive attractions. Foreigners can imagine how stunningly beautiful nature is at the Saint Hilaire Point.
