More importantly, here you can find some of the best Caribbean Luxury Vacations in the many islands that encompass this region of the world. Here’s a list of some of the best ones. Enjoy!
Best Luxury Islands in the Caribbean #1: Barbados
Birthplace to pop star singer Rihanna, the island of Barbados is a very unique destination for nature lovers. With four different species of sea turtles and a very friendly Afro Barbadian population, this island will grant you many interesting photo opportunities.
When it comes to leisure, it is recommended that you visit during the dry season in order to avoid the rainfall. That is, from December to May. Logically, prices go up during these dates but trust me when I say that it is going to be totally worth it.
Be warned that even though Barbados is only 34km wide, roads aren’t in perfect condition so journeys might take a while. Just relax and enjoy your holiday!
Best Luxury Islands in the Caribbean #2: Dominican Republic
Considered as the second largest Caribbean island after Cuba, the Dominican Republic is as big as it is diverse.
Sharing the same island, Hispanolia, with Haiti, Dominican Republic is the largest economy in the Caribbean and Central American region so be expected to pay even more than in other islands.
A visit to the Dominican Republic is not complete without tryng out the amazing cuisine, which is a mixture of Spanish, Taino (the original inhabitants of the island) and African. The “mangú” (mashed boiled plantain) is to die for and you can even add salami and cheese to make the perfect breakfast of wonders!
Best Luxury Islands in the Caribbean #3: Turks and Caicos
Known as the perfect holiday destination of the Caribbean, Turk and Caicos (more precisely, Caicos Islands and Turks Islands) are British Overseas Territories located in the Lucayan Archipelago of the Caribbean.
They are also known as a biodiversity hotspot for the many endemic species that exist within the two system of islands. Some of the endemic species include lizards, plants, insects and snakes that can only be found in Turks and Caicos.
Weather is always sunny and hot all year long so be sure to bring your swimming suit and loads and loads of sun block!
Best Luxury Islands in the Caribbean #4: Saint-Barthelémy (St. Barts)
Named after the French saint, the island of Saint-Barthélemy is an overseas collectivity of France in the West Indies. St. Barts is a volcanic island that is surrounded by shallow reefs that are perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Despite the arid landscape of the island, St. Barts has an incredible and diverse flora including mangroves and palm trees so it’s a very good place for nature lovers all around.
The capital of St. Barts, Gustavia, boasts an amazing architectural mix of the colonial era of the Spaniards, Swedish, French and the British making it an unique destination of wonders!
