It turns out the Caribbean is much more than an enticing locale for a regular beach holiday. In fact if you are so inclined to slipping into your swimwear for days of beach side fun and relation you can make the time healthy for both body and mind by turning it into an organic trip.
The basis behind an organic or eco-friendly beach holiday is quite simply what the term implies; between bouts of sunning in your bikini swimwear you will only be dining on the best of the local fair and organics.
When you opt for an organic beach holiday you will find that these charming resorts create their breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus all around what is either grown right on site or only a few miles away. What this then means to you is that your food is not only that much more healthy and free of any negative chemicals used in more standard production methods, but you will be reducing your carbon footprint as well.
Food transportation from imports is one of the leading contributors to greenhouse gas emissions that are so detrimental to the environment. When you are then eating specifically local foods you will not only be fuelling yourself with healthier foods, but doing Mother Nature a favour at the same time. All of this and you will still be enjoying peaceful days reclining under the glorious sun or shimmering moonlight in your swimwear.
The Caribbean is a beautiful destination in and of itself and if you are going in organic style you will be met with all of the splendours known to the area as well as having all of the benefits this eco-friendly trend has. There is the Balenbouche Estate which is located in Vieux Forth, St. Lucia where you will be housed in quaint cottages nestled among their own plantation growing the herbs, fruits, and vegetables that will be temping your taste buds.
There is also the Fond Doux Holiday Plantation located in St. Lucia too that specializes in their many enticing cocoa products. Other options include the Crayfish Bay Organic Estate in Grenada, West Indies and The Lodge, St. George's right nearby.
What's more is even after you've returned home and retired that swimwear back into the closet you can take a piece of the organic side of the Caribbean back with you as many of these resorts sell their jams, juices, cocoa products, pastas, and much more all to visitors too. This means that eating healthy and doing your part in preserving the planet doesn't have to end when your relaxing organic beach holiday does.
