Caribbean Expert

Originally from the South of France, Sabrina has always loved travelling, either with her family or with friends. She visited many countries in Europe, getting off the beaten track and making friends in every country she visited. She moved to Saint Lucia a few years ago for a job with a French cultural centre, and instantly fell in love with this beautiful island. She particularly enjoyed its stunning nature, the abundance of tropical fruits at the local market, its sandy beaches, and the laid-back atmosphere that is so typical of a Caribbean island.

Her work also gave Sabrina the opportunity to travel all over the Caribbean, discovering the similarities and the difference between all the islands. Each one has something particular which makes it stand out, but her favourite remains Saint Lucia.

Sabrina is now based in Martinique where she works from home, giving her the freedom to continue travelling the Caribbean and share her love for Saint Lucia.

Travel tips from Sabrina

There are so many different things to do in the Caribbean apart from laying on a beach! 

Here are some tips to make the most out of your vacations: 

  • don’t forget to pack a good pair of sneakers: many islands have various hiking trails which offer great views on the coast. Hiking will also enable you to discover the vegetation and fauna of the place. In St Lucia, I recommend the Gros Piton trail for the intermediate-advanced hikers and the Tet Paul Trail for the beginners. In Martinique, explore the Presqu’île de la Caravelle or the hike going to Anse Couleuvre. In Antigua, there are three trails around Shirley Heights lookout, one of the most famous view points of the island.
  • Eat local: don’t skip breakfast, but at times skipp all inclusive and explore local markets, the Caribbean will delight you with yummy fruits, local fresh seafood and snacks. Smell and taste the flavors that are so typical of the Caribbean markets. Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg fill the air, along with the smell of simmering stews. Try a “bake and saltfish” and a “cocoa tea” in St Lucia. 
  • Avoid the crowds: If you are traveling during high season, some places will probably be crowded. If you want to go to the Sulphur Springs in St Lucia, either go early or choose a tour going to the less famous but more beautiful Saphire falls. In Martinique, don’t go to Anse des Salines on a weekend, but explore the east coast or go to the Anses d’Arlet. 
  • Relax: this tip may sound obvious but you will soon realize that the Caribbean follows a different rhythm, and this may be frustrating if you plan a packed schedule. Plan your activities but be prepared to adjust them depending on what comes your way. Enjoy your time and relax. “
