  • Anguilla

    Anguilla has some of the best beaches in the world – fact. What’s more, there’s 33 of them and they’re clean, warm and mesmerisingly beautiful with brilliant-white sands and gentle, turquoise waters. This is what lures travellers here, but there are other compelling reasons to visit this quirky British Overseas Territory, which can be reached by small plane or on a short water crossing from St Martin/St Maarten. Covering 35 square miles and with a population of just 14,500, Anguilla has long had an A-list following, reflected in its wealth of upscale resorts, villas and restaurants. Why? Because here the vibe is definitively laid-back, with the stars left in peace and the ocean providing all the glitz.
  • Antigua and Barbuda

    Served by abundant international flights and blessed with 365 beaches, Antigua is a deservedly popular destination for a Caribbean holiday. There’s a new $100 million airport terminal, an attractive and fast-expanding stock of luxury hotels, and plenty to see and do. The islands are particularly appealing to families and fans of sport and sailing, and the Antiguans are masters at giving their visitors a good time. If you want an easy and sociable, beach-based sunshine break, look no further.
  • Bahamas

    If you won’t settle for anything less than perfection when it comes to a beach holiday, then The Bahamas will suit you to a tee. Gorgeous coral and white sands and fantastic snorkelling and secluded bays abound, making it perfect for a romantic escape. And if you’re seeking nightlife, duty free shopping, luxury casinos and first-class golf, you’ll find it here too. Paradise Island, connected to Nassau by bridges, is a great base to enjoy the best of both worlds, but island hopping around some of the other 700 islands and cays reveals much more. Enjoy the happy vibe, set your watch to ‘island time’, relish the delightful year-round climate and unwind.
  • Barbados

    Much is made of Barbados’ historical links to Britain, and as you drive – on the left-hand side of the road, of course – past a game of cricket being played near Dover or Hastings, you can’t help but agree. But truth be told, more than 50 years after independence, Barbados has matured rather nicely at its own pace and now has an individualistically Bajan lilt to life that is definitely unique. Come for the gorgeous beaches, the friendly people and the delicious food, but above all just come to unwind and relax: it’s always rum punch o’clock in Barbados.
  • Bermuda

    Bermuda is a tiny sliver of Britain in the Atlantic. Well, sort of. Actually, North American influences are strong, in a good way – service, friendliness – but you may be too engrossed swimming in the translucent aquamarine seas or walking across the pink sand beaches that actually squeak underfoot to notice. Whatever the exhortations of the tourist board, Bermuda is not the Caribbean – it’s roughly on the same latitude as Atlanta – so though you definitely won’t be throwing snowballs in midwinter, you probably won’t be frolicking on the beach in January either. Think of it as a spring-to-autumn destination.
  • Dominican Republic

    As the second-largest country in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic is fully geared up for showing holidaymakers a good time. For decades it has lured them to its shores with the promise of uncrowded beaches, wall-to-wall sunshine, rich flora and fauna in 19 national parks and the colourful culture of some 10 million exuberant islanders. With luxury hotels making an appearance on the scene recently – in the likes of Cap Cana – and premier golf opportunities, now is the time to consider the Dominican Republic for your next luxury Caribbean holiday.
  • Grenada

    Grenada is called the Spice Island for good reason: the scent of nutmeg perfumes the air, for Grenada is the world’s largest producer of this heady spice. And since no building here is allowed to be built higher than the tallest palm tree, the island has the balance of tourism and unspoilt scenery just right. Naturally, Grenada is a magnet for those looking for beautiful Caribbean beaches but is also for romantics and those with a sense of adventure alike.
  • Saint Barthélemy

    St Barths deliciously combines the perfect looks of the Caribbean – including limpid waters, scenic hills and 17 white-sand beaches – with the glamour, energy and gourmet delights of the French Riviera. It might be tiny, covering just over eight square miles, but you can still have a lot of fun here. Although well known for attracting superyachts and supermodels, the abiding mood is casual and uninhibited (pack kaftans rather than heels), with a creative élan that elevates it beyond just a fun-in-the-sun getaway. Holiday on St Barths and you won't only eat well and party well – you'll also fly home feeling life is really quite ‘superbe’.
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis

    Of the sister islands of St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Kitts is the larger and more bustling. Until 2005, sugar was the main economy, but now tourism is king, with some of the most luxurious resorts in the Caribbean. Yet despite this rapid development, the island takes great strides to protect both its natural beauty and cultural heritage: over a quarter of the island is protected, and, despite its small size, few Caribbean isles have such remarkable historical sites.
  • Saint Lucia

    St Lucia is less visited than many other of the well known Caribbean islands and is less touristy too. The natural beauty shines through with ease: cue volcanic peaks covered with lush rainforest, deep valleys, pretty sugar and cocoa plantations, pristine beaches and fantastic reefs. Keen sailors can moor up at fine marinas alongside some of the most luxurious yachts in the Caribbean, while the island’s rich culture derived from Caribbean, African, French and English influences means that the culture and cuisine are vibrant and varied.
  • Saint Vincent

    Caribbean holiday dreams come true at the southern end of the Leewards, where the 31 islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines lie scattered across a turquoise sea like dropped jewels. Anchored to the mighty, volcanic hulk of St Vincent, this has long been a getaway of choice for the Caribbean cognoscenti thanks to a winning mix of idyllic sailing, seriously exclusive resorts and authentic, old-school character. Utterly beautiful and blissfully low-key, this is an excellent destination for honeymooners, families, yachties and lovers of island-hopping.
  • Turks and Caicos Isl.

    Thirty miles south-east of the Bahamas, this laid-back British Overseas Territory is a dry, low-lying beach paradise adorned with coral reefs and exquisite luxury escapes. Snorkelling, diving and sport-fishing are key attractions plus the islands’ natural life, ranging from flamingos and rock iguanas to humpback whales. Only eight out of 40 islands are inhabited and many visitors understandably get no further than the international gateway of Providenciales, home to the stunning 12-mile Grace Bay Beach.
