We believe we picked the right area on the island to stay in.Janus and his crew were very helpful and enjoyable to work with.
Due to airline scheduling we arrived a day earlier. We stayed at Downtown Hotel. Janus arranged pick-up from there
to Sapphire 1. He has looked after our need ever since, has made the stay very easy. Tour arrangements at your finger
Have done the beaches in the area, Anse Mamin is our favorite, however do enjoy the smoothies (soursop) on Sugar Beach.
Sulphur Springs and mud baths. Enjoyed the mud bath, Pam found it drying. Water is pretty hot! volcano tour is misable
However, you are there so why not! (We only used the light-colored mud!)
Walked to the waterfalls in th area. Diamond Falls & Botanical Gardens was Very enjoyable. Nice way to spend a couple of
hours one day. Fond Doux Plantation Tour was also very nice, we did tour & snacks (snacks were good)- another very nice,
late morning activity - then hit the beach. (for a quick swim at the beach we used Hammingbird beach few times - it
worked well, but not a 'beach day' place though).
I dove six times while here, Action Adventures diving with Chester. Small stop at Hammingbird Beach (+1-758-485-1317).
I highly recommend him especially if you are experience. Of my dives here my Favorite was 'Super Man's Flight 'Fairyland'
All dives are no more than 20-25 meters. Get used to the islands pace, don't arrive to early or you will spend some time
Restaurants - Ruby's just down the hill, we ate there on several occasions.
FEB.14 - a wonderful 5 course 'Valentines Dinner'. Their pizza's is also good.
Pitit Peak - downtown waterfront, also serves us a very nice catch of the day dinner.
Mango Tree @ Stonefield -we recommend a visit there, good lunch , fantastic view and Surroundings.
ZAKA's - Coffee & Breakfast - Art shop unique and enjoyable (grow theur own coffee beans)
Do our grocery shops at the grocery store on Church Street. It did the trick, also used a butcher shop down the street
Had lion fish (fresh), caught while diving, the only fresh fish we had
Rented a car for our last week and traveled the island. Enjoyed Pigeon Island and its History. Had to get directions to
find it. We believe we picked the right area on the island to stay in.
Janus and his crew were very helpful and enjoyable to work with.
A great Stay Janus
