This was my second trip to the island. Both time I stayed at French side. Esmeralda Resort is on Orient Beach, facing the Atlantic Ocean. Although I prefer the Caribbean Sea, I had fun maneuvering waves with my noodle. The water was warm and clean....More

Between the main road passing by Orient Bay, known as route N7, and the resort itself, there are a number of connecting neighborhood streets where I have gone for morning/evening walks or runs. Some of the streets are marked as dead ends, but many of them connect up to other streets in the neighborhood. The grade change can be significant as the resort is at the lowest point, obviously, and route N7 is further away inland and much higher up, which will make your runs or walks very cardio intense. I've done them many times while visiting there.
If you have time beforehand, do a Google search of European or French road/informational signs which will help identify for you signs which are posted for dead end streets. I can't think of any place safer than the area of Orient Bay to go out walking or running, before sunrise, midday or after sunset.
Learn a bit of simple and basic French (Good Morning, Good Evening) as you will most likely see local residents out and about while exercising and many of them will greet you if they are close enough to make eye contact with you. The people are very friendly and are impressed when foreign visitors have taken the time to communicate in French, even if it's just simple, common phrases.
