“Welcome to the Caribbean, Lad!!!” – The Pirates of the Caribbean
This one statement has drawn many a visitors to these exotic islands after it was first heard from Johnny Depp in the movies “The Pirates of The Caribbean”. The Caribbean compromises of around seven thousand islands that are surrounded by seas that are very crystal clear. The Caribbean provides the tourist a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the open blue sky and the plenty of beaches that surrounds it. This place is in fact considered to be a spot for both families and the newly wed couples. With plenty of islands around, the visitors can simply have a gala time visiting some of the most popular ones with their loved ones and enjoy their vacation to their full satisfaction.
Saline Beach at St. Barts: This is a very small V-shaped island which is just around 8 miles in radius. Inspite of its small shape, this place has been one of the perfect holiday destinations for the average people and the rich. People seeking tropical luxury can get in bounty from this place. The Saline Beach is located on the south coast and is considered to be the most secluded and perfect beach of this island. The sandy beach is white in color and horseshoe shaped and is very close to the country’s important village of Gustavia. Walking for around ten minutes from the car parking area, the visitor can easily enjoy the beautiful scenery that this tropical paradise has to offer.
Englishman’s Bay in Tobago: Tobago is regarded as the lesser developed half of the country of Tobago and Trinidad and is said to be the home to one of the best beaches found in the world. The beach present here is around a mile in length and u-shaped and is enclosed by a lush green headland of this island. A beautiful stream flows in the southern end, out into the sea from the tropical jungle and one could view the beautiful and brilliant coral reefs teeming with various types of tropical fishes that surround the white sands. This place is also secluded and has some small refreshment centers run by the locals.
The Pink Beach of Barbuda: The beautiful island of Barbuda and Antigua is situated in the centre of Leeward Islands, in the eastern part of the Caribbean. The island of Barbuda is said to be almost undeveloped and is considered to be still an untouched paradise, hence making it the perfect place for tourists having a liking for adventure and nature. However, there are various luxurious resorts and plenty of sublime beaches that provide the tourists with natural scenery and relaxation. This place is really ideal for those beach lovers who want to spend their vacation in luxury. The Pink Beach is very popular in Barbuda and is situated only a few miles to the south of the village of Codrington. The coral sands that are champagne colored tend to stretch almost around 8 miles from the Palmetto Point to Spanish Point and the offshore snorkeling is simply amazing. People who want to stay at lonely places would simply enjoy this beach and can stroll for miles without actually seeing another soul in sight.
I really liked Englishman’s Bay in Tobago. It’s a really beautiful place and a lot more relaxed than other parts of the island, which can get pretty busy.
