Spend a day on Pinel Island


Go where the locals go (and many more): take a trip to Pinel Island; the closest an Atlantic beach meets a Caribbean beach. Short hiking trails provide fun for the nature lover who are prone to run into turtles, iguanas and much more, while foodies can enjoy the two restaurants on island. Half hourly boats bring you there and back; return tickets can be bought for USD 12 as of 10am. The last boats return at 5 so the preserved area becomes a natural hideaway again; so for a good day of Pinel it is advised to go early. Boats to Pinel island leave from French Cul de Sac in between of Orient Bay and Anse Marcel. French Cul de Sac should not be confused with the Dutch side Cul de Sac Valley .
