Whales are magnificent creatures and getting the opportunity to see one is truly an unforgettable experience.
During the months of December through April is the perfect time to guarantee a sighting because they migrate to the Caribbean waters for warmth in order to mate.
There are several tour companies that organize day trips on either sailing or motorboats. Wind Adventures is a charter company on the French side that will take you on the water to see these impressive mammals. Be prepared to spend the day on the boat as you patiently wait to see a whale or if you’re lucky you might even see a few of them.

Sunbathe or Swim
Baie Rouge Beach won Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice awards for best beaches in 2020 and it’s easy to understand why. Soft white sand, clear beautiful water and a calming breeze make this beach a perfect relaxing getaway.
Make sure to pack a picnic for the day as there are no restaurants and facilities on the beach. You can also bring your own lounge chairs and an umbrella if you want to shade yourself from the sun.
If you would like Instagram worthy pictures then I suggest doing a photoshoot by the pretty colorful stairs. It’s recommended to bring snorkeling gear since there is a wide variety of fish in the water. The parking areacan fill up pretty quickly so it’s best to leave early in the morning to guarantee getting a spot.
