My fiancé and I are planning a trip in July 2014 and would like somewhere where we can explore (we have done the all-inclusive trips and feel like after a few days we are "stuck" on the resort).
As I read more and more about the island, it seems like what we would be looking for. Beaches, slightly hilly terrain, French flavor in parts, a casino, beautiful views, friendly locals, nightlife, snorkeling, beautiful sailboats - to name a bit of what we are looking for.
We are considering renting a car - any thoughts?
Also, we intend to stay for 6 or 7 nights. Would anyone recommend staying at multiple locations? Maybe near the nightlife/casino/touristy area for a night or two and then maybe a qaunt B&B or small resort?
We'd like to mix it up a bit and my fiancé love French style and cuisine.
All comments and suggestions a re very appreciated!!!
