Going to the Caribbean? 10 Places You Have to See

On a trip to the Caribbean, the thought of a sub tropical climate, white sandy beaches and a great place to relax are the first thoughts that come to the mind. The Caribbean is studded with over 7000 islands, islets, forests and mountains, and deciding which are the top 10 places to see can be quite difficult. Of course, looking for beaches to relax on, or places for scuba diving and snorkelling is easy, as there are plenty of places for this in the Caribbean islands. But to really see Caribbean islands a visit to the sanctuaries, plantations and towns is also required for getting a real feeling for the place.  


Those who are looking for peace and quiet to unwind and to start their vacation with, must first head to Virgin Gorda. It is empty, laid back and not easy to get to, but once there it is an ideally suited place to relax and unwind. St. John is also a good choice, being one of the least populated and least developed of the islands. For an authentic Caribbean experience, Nevis with its flat coast line, rain forests and Mount Nevis – and a rather small population – would be the place to visit. Also, there are no ugly high rises on this island. Most of the luxurious hotels and villas are situated on Anguilla, with its lovely coastline and miles of beaches making it an ideal spot for a relaxing vacation by the sea.  

No visit to the Caribbean would be complete without a visit to Bermuda. The place bustles with people and the atmosphere is always festive. If shopping is required then a hop to Harbour Island is in order. There are colourful cottages along the harbour and old palatial residences. This is one of the oldest settlements in the Bahamas, and the feel of the past still remains in this town. Looking for adventure would require a trip to Saba, where there is a dormant volcano that can be reached by a thin winding road. There is plenty of wild life to be seen in this beautifully preserved island.

The Dominican Republic is a choice of many vacationers that offers two different types of beaches. The Caribbean side boasts white sandy beaches and the gulf side does not. Cayman Islands have a beach called 7 Mile Beach, and the beach just continues into the horizon. For duty free shoppers St Thomas offers stores loaded with electronics, emeralds, diamond and duty free liquor shops. It also has a stunning beach. Luxury hotels and casinos are in Aruba – and also some of the friendliest people.

A trip to the Caribbean without visiting the rum capital of the world, Jamaica, would be considered incomplete. The people are relaxed and friendly and one can ride a bike around Jamaica.  

There are so many islands, and each boasts their own individuality, that one is really hard placed to decide which the best are as each one of them is unique.
