Editor of Destination St Martin / St Maarten

Kerry Biddle started working for Destination in June 2009 and three years later became editor. In the pursuit of articles for the magazine, she has been on quite a few adventures. One was a shark dive where a shark headed straight for her and she had to duck to let it pass over her head. Another was a full day of caving and hiking in Anguilla before catching the ferry back to St Martin, still covered in fine red dust from head to foot. There was also the incident of being one of the first down the steepest zip line in the world, while others hung back saying they would wait to see how safe it was first. Kerry says, “If you don’t do it, you can’t write about it––at least not properly”.
