Meghan wrote about her trips to St Barths on The Tig

The mother-of-two loves the white sand island for its "Francophile sensibility that is just as island-esque as it is chic, quiet beaches, authentic creole food, and a place where strolls down cobblestone streets and visits to French pharmacies rival those found in Paris."

In fact, Meghan even wrote that she prefers to take a more low-key approach to her travel, "with a healthy dose of swanky goodness peppered throughout," of course.

Describing herself as a "mermaid [her] friends could not drag out of the sea," Meghan revealed that Grand Saline Beach is the ultimate spot for crystal clear waters and unrivalled island vibes.

A foodie at heart, Meghan told her readers: "The best part of Saline is perhaps that it’s a stone's throw from Le Grain de Sel, an authentic Caribbean restaurant serving up creole classics. Do not miss this food gem, where the bites are as transportive as the vacation itself.

The Duchess of Sussex is no stranger to a luxury travel destination

"Without question, St. Barths remains an ultra-luxury destination, but with a little scouring, you can find a respite from the fancy fray or dive right in – whatever your pleasure, this island does seem to have it all."
