Unexplored Caribbean Islands (Part I)

You’d think that there exists such an amount of honeymoons and tour packs in the world that there cannot be any new place to discover in the Caribbean. However, apart from the favorite tourist places crowded of people, there are some unknown places which are well worth too in the Caribbean islands.

However, to reach these remote locations you will need maybe to catch a plane, you may not find 5 star all inclusive hotel and even have to share your trip with some animals. But we can propose a plan that cannot fail, you can sail on a yacht or even a catamaran from sunrise to sunset, free as the wind to the most amazing places in the Caribbean.

Terre-de -Haut , Santos Islands, French Antillas

Terre-de-Haut is an island the size of Rio, with fine sandy beaches and its own mountain cliff. Most visitors in this island in front of Guadeloupe are mostly French. The island, which has two square kilometers, is one of eight islands that make up the so-called Islas de los Santos. The island is crescent-shaped and has a picturesque harbor. The main town is Le Bourg, surrounded by white houses topped with red tile roofs.

Attractions: One way to know is to ask the locals how to get to a bar Chez Cécile popularly known as Los Cocos. In this place there will always be mai tais (refreshing cocktail) and accras (Creole donut) freshly prepared.
