Sud Department Stylin’ at Villa Nicole, Haiti

Sud Department Stylin’ at Villa Nicole, Haiti

She’s hard to miss from the road that winds out onto a promontory between Cayes-Jacmel and Marigot. Bold and bright, she seems carved from a thick tangle of coconut palms. A mix of sand, rocks, and shells lines the shore upon which she sits. Before her, the churning waves of Kabik Beach, one of the best surfing spots in Haiti. At her back, as everywhere in Haiti, mountains and more mountains. It’s an absolutely idyllic spot; one emblematic of Haiti’s tourism heyday when the star-crossed country was known as the Pearl of the Antilles. All of this plus a pool, 10 rooms, and barefoot dining in the sand – this is Villa Nicole.

Uncommon Caribbean
