Plage Paradise

Sensing we were interested in a bit more sand than her place offered, our host Angelique suggested we visit some of the surrounding beaches. Since there’s no road there, we strolled to the village dock and negotiated boat transport with Willie, a guy with fantastic English who had helped us get to Norm’s Place the day prior. We joined him on his taxi–as colorfully decorated as the rest–and grabbed this shot of one of the other taxis by the dock. A true representation of the Haitian spirit: life is something to be enjoyed and not taken too seriously.

The 10-minute boat ride ended at Plague Paradise.

We will let you be the judge: is it perfectly named?

The ocean was deliciously cool on the top and bathwater warm on the bottom, so we could float through as many different temperatures as needed.

The only other people on the beach were our taxi driver, his assistant, and a beach caretaker who also sold bottles of Prestige.

No fridge here; just this cool spring to chill the beers.

A short panoramic video.

We were sad to leave it.
