There is no denying that the Caribbean contains some of the the best beaches in the world. The sun-drenched white sands, crystal-clear waters, and palm trees swaying in the breeze sounds all too much like a tropical paradise, that’s because it is! There is no better place to kick back and relax, and here are the best of the best –
Aruba, only 70 square miles in size, is a firm favorite with holiday travelers to the Caribbean. With dozens of beaches to choose from, the stand-out one has to be Eagle beach. Often voted as one of the best beaches in the world, its soft white sands and gentle surf are an immediate attraction. It is a surprisingly quiet beach as well, making it perfect for soaking up the Caribbean sun in a relaxed atmosphere.
With over 500 miles of coastline, Jamaica has a wide assortment of beaches to enjoy, from small intimate coves, to larger beaches in popular tourist resort areas. With so many to choose from, narrowing down which one is the best is no easy task, but Negril beach is sure to land on the top of many travel connoisseur lists. Situated on the western side of the island, it boasts five miles of white sands, with the clear sea on one side, and fringed by palm trees, restaurants and bars on the other. There are plenty of water sporting activities such as windsurfing and scuba diving to try, and it is even possible to get a massage right on the beach. Top tip – Remember to stay until the sun goes down, and witness a truly breathtaking sunset.
If you are looking for a quiet and hard to reach place that will ensure tranquillity and keeps the masses away, then Tahiti Beach is the place for you. Located at the far end of the island, its cool waters and white sands can only be reached by walking or riding a bike along the sand and gravel tracks from Hope Town, or by chartering a boat. A mini-adventure to reach an idyllic setting? Perfect.
The Dominican Republic has long been a firm favorite for people seeking an all inclusive vacation in the Caribbean. The Punta Cana/Bavaro area on the east coast is home to a cluster of resorts, and for good reason – One of the worlds best strips of beach is right on the doorstep. There are over 20 miles of golden sand beach, and the waters are safe for swimming all the year through. A wide range of activities are also available to choose from, so thrill seekers will be just as satisfied as those seeking a more relaxed vacation.
