A luxury high end Beach House Finds, resort where the view has no fourth wall with a breath taking views of the twin peaks of the Pitons. Oprah Winfrey declared the Pitons one of the top five sites to see before you die.

To get there you must arrange Travel to Hewanorra International Airport (American Airlines and Delta currently fly here) which is about an hour’s drive from most hotels. Many resorts will arrange a car service, or a helicopter transfer ($170 per person) one way to avoid the hairpin roads. The most popular way to travel between towns or resorts is by boat or water taxi, which is a great way to appreciate the island’s dramatic cliffs and diverse terrain.

I am in love with the Carribean and I loved this shot. I guess I am curiou s about heading over to Bora Bora. My best friend teaches about Polynesian culture and I have been smitten with the idea of making it over to French Polynesia. Great blog.
