Think Caribbean Islands and only one image pops up in our minds – palm trees, heavenly white beaches, and crystal clear blue waters. While this may be true to a great extent, not many of us know that each of these beautiful islands have a unique characteristic of their own. With a cluster of more than 700 islands, we’ve made the task easier for you. Here’s a list of what Caribbean island should you visit based on your personal traits! Check it out –
We’re on our honeymoon (for the hundredth time!)
Amongst the most popular ones for diehard romantics, nothing can beat St. Lucia’s famous Twin Pitons, evergreen rainforests and outwardly white beaches. What’s more, this tiny island has beautiful, all-encompassing resorts scattered all around its surface, meaning it’s never a bad time to visit St. Lucia!
We’re family people
Bahamas is the go-to place for an ideal family beach holiday. From being safe, clean and filled with family-friendly hotels, this Island is also quite well-known for boutique shopping and water-sports. Try staying at the iconic Atlantis mega resort on Paradise Island for a completely unforgettable experience!
I’m a happy solo traveller
Solo-travellers, especially women, should and must try a holiday in Curacao atleast once in their lifetime. Not only is this third of the ABC islands outside the hurricane belt (meaning you’ll never have to worry about the weather here), it also has a rich cultural history dating back to the 16th century. Curacao’s numerous coral reefs makes it one of the most sought-after destinations for water-sport enthusiasts.
We want to hike as well as surf!
St. Vincent & the Grenadines
This multi-island nation has something exclusive to offer every traveller. Apart from the striking natural beauty of the biggest island St. Vincent, this group of 32 islands is a snorkelling, diving and hiking paradise. Sailing, scuba-diving, taking a rainforest eco-adventure – the list of exciting things you can do on St Vincent and the Grenadines is never-ending; but most of all, don’t miss out on exploring its smaller islands on a fish boat – a typical Grenadine experience that’ll stay with you forever!
We’re on a planned budget
Known for its affordable yet attractive resorts, the Dominican Republic also boasts of an enticingly rich culture and mind-blowing natural beauty. Apart from being home to beautiful rainforests, waterfalls, coral reefs, pine trees and isolated islands that hold some of the highest peaks in the Caribbean, the country’s jewel capital – Santo Domingo, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We’re die-hard foodies
Let us tell you first-hand, St. Barth is pricey. But the quality and variety of cuisine you get here is priceless. What could be more incredible than getting a slice of European culture right in the middle of the Caribbean, that too with a taste of Creole French dishes? If St. Barth sounds too good to be true to you food lovers, you better see it first-hand to believe us!
We’re water animals
British Virgin Islands
Who doesn’t love balmy beaches, steady winds and secluded coves? That’s what British Virgin Islands does to you – makes you fall in love with its stunning scenic beauty. It’s as easy to rent a week-long, fully crewed yacht here as it is to simply swim with the dolphins. From diving to snorkelling to windsurfing to kayaking – these islands are the ultimate holiday getaways for water-sport enthusiasts.
We like to go off the beaten track
This tiny Dutch island has less than 2000 residents and is home to a dormant volcano, a well-preserved marine park, and stunning mountain views. Talk about getting it all in one prefect, offbeat choice – Saba is the answer. Just one point – this Caribbean beauty is not for beach lovers. Saba only has one ‘Wandering Beach’, which is only visible during some parts of the year.
We’re history fanatics
Add your passion for culture and history with your longing for a Caribbean holiday and voila! You get Puerto Rico as the reply. With its cobblestone streets and colourful colonial buildings dating back to the 15th century, San Juan, Puerto Rico’s capital, is a must visit for history buffs. Take delight in exploring the city’s lovely cathedral, museums, its many antique shops and art galleries and lastly, its richly significant forts.
We seek luxury
Luxury travellers looking for that ‘just right’ Caribbean package must definitely head to Antigua at least once in their lifetime to truly experience what serene magnificence is. Even if you’re not up for a beach holiday, Antigua gives you plenty of other fun activities to engage yourself in. Lined up with superior, all-inclusive resorts and the usual Caribbean splendour, we promise you’ll never have one boring second while on this gorgeous island!
