We will take you there for an unforgettable day!

Years after years, Pinel Island has become a "must see" for all the visitors of our friendly island. Why? Simply because Pinel has it all: the beauty, the crystal blue water, the white sand, the culinary experience, the wild side for the nature lovers… And of course, the travel sensation. No matter what you are looking for; relaxing, hiking, snorkeling, swimming, venturing around or just sipping under the Caribbean sun… You can not be disappointed after a day on that little piece of paradise.

Caribbean Paddling offers a friendly way to explore Pinel Island: Rent a kayak and/or a Stand Up Paddle board and explore this little paradise.

But that is not it! We also rent the GIANT Paddle Board which provides even more fun that you can share right away with your friends and family, by paddling all together like a real boat crew ;) And for those who like to get closer to the underwater world, check out our brand new snorkel Reefboard which makes snorkeling even easier than it is already. A new sensation for an additional complet feeling of freedom in the protected Marine Park.

There is a debate about which is more fun to use. A standup paddleboard or a sit-on kayak. Each brings their own benefits, yet there are times when a sit-on kayak edges in front of a paddle board. Here are five reasons why it does just that.

Barbados doesn’t always get the credit it deserves as one of the more diverse Caribbean islands, in terms of terrain and attractions. There are rocky and sandy coasts, small towns and resorts, and more remote areas for exploration. It’s a small island, but one that’s a real treat to visit, should you ever get the chance. Plus, as with most Caribbean islands, it’s full of excellent places to go paddling! We’ll highlight three of them below.

So, you’ve taken up the sport of paddleboarding, and you're wondering how to optimize your experience on the water with the essential gear. You're ready to hit your local lake, beach or river, but what should you bring in your paddling excursion? Now, depending on how long you intend your paddle adventure to last, you can always slip into the water with just your board, paddle and bathing suit. It's common to have less gear with you for a quick paddle session, or when sharing a board with the family on a beach day. But if you plan on being out on the water for more than twenty minutes, here are five essential tips for beginner paddleboarders to keep in mind.

Pinel Island is a well known destination for snorkeling but once you get there, it's not obvious to find the best spot. Whether you get there by kayak, paddle board or ferry, you need to take that opportunity to discover and explore the underwater world..! With its flat waters and its little to no current, the bay of Cul-de-Sac is one of the most accessible place for snorkeling, even for small kids and beginners.

So here are our top 3 recommendations:

  • Our number one spot is located at Little Key, which is the island before Pinel Island. Once on the tiny deserted beach, you can either start on the left or on the right of the beach. The left side will make you follow the shallow waters before the point of the island. That spot is interesting because of its easy access and its calm waters. All you have to do is to follow the underwater reef until the point, then you can come back (or try to find the numerous sea turtles) or keep snorkeling around the island.

Living in Saint-Martin has many assets to offer. And one of them is that we have Islands closed by to travel to in no time, either for a day trip or for the week end. An Island Hoping paradise for everybody: the locals and the visitors! 

Anguilla is the British Island located at the North of Saint-Martin, less than 4 miles away. It is famous for its beautiful beaches and its crystal clear water. This is the perfect Island for a relaxing getaway (beach, snorkeling, water activities…) since besides the magnificent coast, there is not much to do over there. 

Saba is located at the South West of Sint-Marteen and belongs to the Dutch. It is actually the highest land of Netherland! The landscape is the opposite from Anguilla’s (which is absolutely flat) and the particularity of this island is… It is a beachless Caribbean Island. How incredible, right? But no worries, you still have a lot to do over there, mostly sportive activities! Basically, Saba is well known for its beautiful hikes in the mountain with thousands of different plants & amazing deep dives with colorful reefs. This is a great alternative from the “beach style” vacations that most of the Caribbean Islands usually offer.

And the last, but not the least: Saint-Barth . We are sure that you have already heard of it, isn’t it? ☺ Saint-Barth is located at the west of Saint-Martin, and is accessible either by ferry (30 minutes of ferry ride), by charter plane (12 minutes of flight), with a helicopter (10 minutes of flight) or by private boat. This island is a pure gem! Famous to be the destination for the famous and rich people, this French island has everything to satisfy everybody’s tastes (but still pricey)! Hilly landscapes with amazing point of views of the deep blue & turquoise Caribbean sea, white sand beaches, great shopping (!!), 5 stars resorts or charming casual ones, gastronomic restaurants, hikes on the wild side, natural pools… And of course, all the water activities you can think of!
