This was our favourite island, I wanted to go to death in paradise but was out voted by the rest of my party. We ended up at sainte Anne's beach and it was beautiful, the water was the clearest I've seen, it was excellent for snorkelling, but the fish could be seen without a snorkel anyway. The beach was rather full but not over crowded.
A waste of time and money. The trip was useless - we were taken to graveyards. The guide had a language barrier. There was one toilet between a coachload of people. We had a very small drink provided.

We were advised that they use Euros here and we could exchange dollars at the end of the pier. While we didn’t get any, we still walked into the town with all its shops and figured if we saw something we really wanted we could backtrack and do so. This is place fascinating and a very busy place. We, however, did not feel completely safe by not taking a “shore tour”. If we were to return, we would book a shore tour or stay on the ship.

We did our own trip at the port in order to visit the town where the British crime drama Death in Paradise is filmed. We drank some beer at Katherine's beach bar and can attest that the island is every bit as beautiful as it appears.

Port - ok Took the TUI Panoramic Tour of the Butterfly - Botanical gardens very good, guide was not very good, did not tell us much about the island too interested in talking about life in general, Also stopped for an inappropriate photo stop of a cemetary. Also she was 20 minutes late back to the coach at the Botanical Gardens, all passengers were sat on board waiting! Thought the 1 hour stop at the beach was a bit of a waste of time, not enough to settle or even have a snack.
