French Caribbean in St-Martin

Karibuni means 'welcome' in Suaheli and that's just how you feel when arriving at the thatch-shaded wooden deck of the more upscale of the two restaurants on Ilet Pinel. Feast on bay views, grilled lobster and rum punch in between dips into the shimmering water and say hello to the visiting iguanas.

Also rents sun loungers with umbrellas (€20 for two).
