Escape civilization with a holiday in Antigua and Barbuda, a beachgoer's paradise. The shorelines of the two islands are dotted with many beaches, from long stretches of sand to tiny coves and picturesque lagoons. While the larger Antigua houses its fair share of high-end resorts and contains the country capital of St. John's, Barbuda is remarkably undeveloped, boasting swathes of pink sand where you can go for hours without seeing a single person.

Beaches · Shopping · Scuba & Snorkeling
A trip to St. Kitts and Nevis takes you to the smallest country in the Americas. Although diminutive in size, the two Caribbean islands offer a distinct tropical experience to visitors. Rich in history, the islands feature forested hills, tranquil beaches, charming villages, and restored sugar plantations. On a tour of St. Kitts and Nevis you can visit historic forts and quaint colonial towns, lounge on picturesque stretches of sand, or enjoy hiking the dormant Mount Liamuiga, the islands' highest peak.

St. Maarten-St. Martin travel guide

4.3
Gift & Specialty Shops · Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling
A trip to St. Maarten-St. Martin allows you to discover two separate colonies occupying one small island of just 95 sq km (37 sq mi). Divided between France and the Netherlands, this tiny spit of land in the Caribbean treats visitors to a surprisingly diverse blend of native and European cultures. A tour of St. Maarten-St. Martin reveals a landscape of both urban and untamed areas, with sandy beaches and pristine rainforests often appearing as extensions of one another.

Curacao travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Bridges · Scuba & Snorkeling
Take a trip to Curacao and lounge on its picture-perfect beaches and coves. Although part of the Kingdom of Netherlands, the island's population has developed its own distinct culture, a blend of Afro-Caribbean and Latin American, with a Creole language called Papiamento. Along with its neighbors, Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao sits outside the Caribbean "hurricane zone" and boasts a warm, breezy climate throughout the year. On a Curacao vacation, you can laze, dive, or snorkel on its scenic stretches of sand, visit charming plantations in the interior, or roam the streets of Willemstad, renowned for its distinct architecture.

Dominican Republic travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Islands · Zipline
Sharing the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, friendly Dominican Republic offers two distinct coastlines, one bathed by the Caribbean Sea and the other by the Atlantic Ocean. Nearly 1,600 km (1,000 mi) of palm-shaded beaches figure highly on most Dominican Republic itineraries, allowing visitors to design their vacation around a range of water-based activities. The sun-kissed country benefits from pleasant temperatures throughout the year, so it's no surprise that holidays in Dominican Republic remain a popular choice for visitors from distant and colder corners of the world. A big producer of coffee, cocoa, rum, sugarcane, and tobacco, the country provides a vibrant cultural experience in multicultural cities and quaint countryside.
