Dine: Local spices and ingredients are woven into every dish, from cream of breadfruit (a locally sourced starch) soup to nutmeg ice cream (exotic flavors made from scratch daily), served in open-air dining areas.
Don't Miss: Shop the nearby market for native spices, such as cloves and cinnamon, and hand-woven baskets. For an adventure, drive 20 minutes for a rain forest hike that leads to dramatic waterfalls and natural pools suited for swimming.
