(UPDATE) Are you picturing yourself cocktail in hand, soaking up the sun on the pristine beach of the Caribbean? Stop dreaming and make it happen! Visit Guadeloupe, Dominica, Barbados, St. Lucia and Martinique in one marvelous trip from Paris for only €509!
Color, vitality, seductive landscapes, and dazzling blue seas— those are the essential ingredients that make the islands spread around azure waters of the Caribbean Sea so special. Take this opportunity to get to know 5 paradise islands in one spectacular trip! Your journey will start in Paris where you catch a flight to Guadeloupe.
Guadeloupe is a fascinating archipelago of two islands, joined together by a mangrove swamp, with each island offering travelers something different while retaining its rich Franco-Caribbean culture and identity. Grande-Terre has a string of beach towns that offer visitors stunning stretches of sand and plenty of activities, while mountainous Basse-Terre, is home to the wonderful Guadeloupe National Park, which is crowned by the spectacular La Soufriere volcano.
And now let’s discover the unknown treasure island of Caribbean – Dominica. This volcanic island covered by a rainforest offers experiences such as an intense trek to a bubbling lake, soothing your muscles in hot sulfur springs, getting pummeled by a waterfall, snorkeling in a glass of ‘champagne’, swimming up a narrow gorge – the list goes on.
Dominica has been spared of mass tourism, in large part because there are very few sandy beaches, no flashy resorts and almost no international flights.
Your next stop will be Barbados. This island is the perfect choice for getting relaxed under tropical sun on the stunning sandy beaches. The island-state is full of beach resorts from humble to grand, smashing nightlife, a Unesco World Heritage capital, Bridgetown, a beautiful interior dotted with gardens, wild surf on the lonely east coast and a proud and welcoming local people.
Although with heavy heart, it is time to leave amazing Barbados. Your journey continues with a flight to St. Lucia. Known for luxurious resorts, acres of banana plantations, and hidden beaches, the island is a dream destination. With a lush interior featuring towering mountains, dense rain forests and fertile valleys, St. Lucia is distinguished by the incredibly photogenic Pitons — geologic wonder of the twin peaks that soar high above the ocean on its southwest coast.
And now, let’s take another flight, you’ll pay a visit to Martinique. This incredible island offers a striking diversity of landscapes and atmospheres. While it suffers from uncontrolled urban sprawl in some places, particularly in and around the busy capital, Fort-de-France, life – and travel – becomes more sedate as one heads north or south through some of the island’s delicious scenery. The rainforested, mountainous northern part is the most spectacular, but the south has its fair share of natural wonders, including lovely bays and miles of luscious beaches.
All good things must come to an end. Catch a flight from Martinique to Paris.
