The Essential
Recommended
The small white-washed houses of the island's capital cling to sometimes sheer slopes, commanding fine ocean views. The vegetation is omnipresent from colourful bougainvillea climbing on the walls of quintas and birds of paradise and hibiscus in the gardens to the Royal poinciana, whose brilliant shades light up the dark basalt edifices, while its fallen red petals contrast with the black and white floor mosaics. Welcome to the most tropical European town.
