Home to Some of the Best Sandy Shores Worldwide
Beach lovers from all over the world enjoy holidays to the Caribbean, home to some of the best sandy shores worldwide. From small boutique hotels to family friendly resorts.
The tiny island of Barbados is widely known for its white sand beaches and luxury hotels and is for many the quintessential Caribbean island. Quaint villages with English style churches and cricket pitches serve as a reminder of the island’s colonial history, although blended with a distinctly West Indian flavour giving Barbados its unique charm.
Unlike many of the other islands of the Caribbean, snorkelling and diving is excellent in the waters surrounding St Lucia and whale and dolphin cruises are also popular pursuits. Given the stunning scenery, St Lucia is a popular honeymoon destination and there are some excellent small and intimate hotels and resorts which we can recommend for those looking for a truly special romantic escape.
Jamaica is one of the more interesting Caribbean islands to visit for those looking for more than just a beach holiday destination. The third largest island in the West Indies, Jamaica boasts mountains reaching over 2,000 metres, lush forests and dramatic waterfalls.
The island is famed for its music with fans of Bob Marley and Reggae music making a beeline to the village of Nine Mile where Marley was born and is buried. Jamaica is perfect for water sports enthusiasts with excellent diving, rafting and sailing available. Hiking is also a popular pursuit particularly in the Blue Mountains where visits to historical coffee plantations are also offered.
Antigua boasts some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, there are reputed to be 365 of them so 1 for each day of the year.
It is also one of the main hubs in the Caribbean with onward flights to smaller islands around the Caribbean, so it works well as a twin centre destination if you would like to visit more than one island. There are resorts and accommodation for all budgets and holiday styles so whether you are a honeymooning couple, a family, group of friends or you are travelling solo, Antigua should have the hotel and the beach for you.
