When I decided to pick three Caribbean islands to feature, I should have known it would be tough to narrow it down to only three! Where to visit depends on what you're looking for, as the Caribbean offers so much choice for different tastes and budgets. I finally whittled it down, but couldn't bring myself to put them in any particular order! Nevertheless, here are my top 3!
|St. Vincent and the Grenadines|
Made up of 32 islands and cays, St. Vincent and the Grenadines lies to the west of Barbados and south of Saint Lucia. The islands are relatively deserted, with just nine of them inhabited, and they're simply beautiful. As well as luxury accommodation, the islands offer rainforest adventures and miles of powder-white sand beaches.....what more could you ask for!
Regular visitors to this blog will know I have a soft spot for Barbados. The most easterly of the Caribbean islands has the perfect blend of classy resorts and calm waters on the West coast, and stunning but wild, rugged beaches on the East coast. Whether you're looking for a chill-out spot, or great restaurants Barbados has it all.
If I think of Anguilla, I picture white sand and pristine waters. I's one of the most northerly of the Leeward islands, lying East of Puerto Rico, and has everything you'd expect from a Caribbean island. White sand beaches,; turquoise waters, scenic bays and palm trees. There is a real slow, laid-back atmosphere on this island - just the place to escape from the rat race!
There are so many fabulous islands to choose from - if you have visited the Caribbean, let me know your favourite, and why you think it should have been on this list!
