Although there is a hotel and restaurant here, that was converted from the former estate of Queen
Elizabeth’s cousin, Lord Brownlow, its beach side location also offers visitors several nature trails
which lead over the windswept hillsides and provide excellent views of the ocean. La Sagesse’s
location is also popular with many birders.
Just an hour’s drive from St. George’s
is the 17th-century plantation known
as the Belmont Estate where visitors
can taste some of the delicious,
centuries-old spices of the island.
The estate offers a variety of options
apart from the spice tasting which
include a tour of an organic farm
that produces both fruit and spice.
Chocolate lovers are also catered
for with an option to enjoy a three
course meal, with each of the courses
featuring locally made chocolate.
