I'm so busy enjoying the cool breeze of the sea air that the jetty ahead seems to come out of nowhere! As we dock at Salt Plage, overlooking Whitehouse Bay, the first word that comes to mind is 'chic'. Barefoot sophistication is the theme and this is reflected in the stylish hammocks suspended over the water. It's already a highlight on our fam trip to St. Kitts and it's not long before there's talk of sinking into one of the plush daybeds to enjoy the ocean view. We're welcomed with music and dancers in colourful costumes, their warm smiles infectious, and it's easy to see how this chilled daytime oasis transforms into the go-to party place once the sun goes down. Full moon parties and DJs are popular among the locals and a signature cocktail, the SALT Plage Jumbie – a concoction of spiced rum with fresh pineapple, oranges, cherries and grated nutmeg – also helps to get you in the mood for a dance.

FAMILY APPEAL

Agents enjoy Premier trip to Jersey Premier Holidays took 18 agents on a mega-fam to Jersey for two nights, with activities including visits to the Jersey War Tunnels and Jersey Zoo, wine tasting at La Mare Wine Estate and a tour of some of the island’s hot spots such as Gorey, St Ouen’s Bay and Corbiere Lighthouse. premierholidays.co.uk

The adults don't get to have all the fun though, children are welcomed and eagerly come to spot fish swimming in the crystal clear waters from the jetty. There's also a menu serving island favourites such as plantain chips, fish tacos and lobster wraps to keep their hunger at bay. To say the least, I'm impressed by this trendy yet laid-back bar, but nothing could prepare me for what was still to come. Salt Plage is often described as the best spot to watch the sunset on the island and I watch in awe as wisps of pink and orange start to fade beyond the darkening horizon. I can't help but agree.
