With soft sandy beaches to play on, warm turquoise seas to jump in and magical mountains to explore, it’s hard to imagine a more feel-good family destination.
Just think of the excitement of a Pirate Family Adventure on a replica 18th century rigged schooner! Sailing down the island’s dramatic coast, stopping off to visit a volcano. Other nautical adventures that little ones will love include whale and dolphin-watching expeditions and glass-bottomed boat trips.
On land, there are exciting rainforest nature trails that are suitable for families with young children. Guides knowledgeable in the flora and fauna make the walks both fun and educational. There’s also sweet fun to be had on a cocoa plantation tour at Boucan Hotel. Then it’s adventure galore at Pigeon Island National Park, with two beautiful beaches, military ruins, a lookout point at the top of the fort and an Interpretive Centre describing the rich history of the island.
Teenagers will enjoy tackling more challenging rainforest treks, zip-lining over the tree canopy or riding a Segway along a nature trail. They can also saddle-up and ride horseback through the surf, kite surf over the ocean, and snorkel in coral reef that is within easy to reach from some of the island’s beaches.
