Pier One Restaurant is situated within Port Saint Charles , great seafood and a separate Vegan menu. We suggest day time dining; they serve an enviable list of cocktails. Remember to take your swimwear, as it’s a great place to sunbathe and have a swim in the sea . It is good place to go, even on a rainy day, as you can sit outside, under cover, and watch the world go by
Foursquare Rum Distillery is located in the parish of Saint Philip, on the site of a former sugar plantation, dating back to 1720. Take a guided tour and enjoy a rum tasting session at the end.

We highly recommend this day out.

Animal Flower Cave at North Point is rugged and beautiful at the same time. An opportunity to go down into the cave to swim and see some of the sea flowers.

The restaurant has a great menu and offers the chance to see turtles whilst you dine. Between January and March the sea off Animal Flower Cave is frequented by humpback whales.
