Caribbean holidays: Escape to the colourful Caribbean

So much more than sun, and sand - should you need it!



Caribbean HolidaysCaribbean beaches are the benchmark for all the world's finest beaches. The image of a white sand Caribbean beach, sandwiched between emerald waters and serene palm trees is an image that every beach lover has etched into their minds, and the real thing simply blows your wildest dreams out of the water. But the beauty of a Caribbean holiday certainly doesn't begin and end at the seaside, there is a whole world to explore.

There are over 700 islands split into 25 territories making up the Caribbean, so the only hardship in taking a Caribbean holiday is deciding which one to explore. Almost every one of the Caribbean islands has its own ambience, which makes the decision even harder. The youthful atmosphere and constant entertainment of the Dominical Republic contrasts with the almost stationary pace of traditional life in St Kitts and Nevis, whilst the music and Caribbean food famous in Jamaica and the Bahamas seems very different to the Caribbean food emanating from Puerto Rico or Guadeloupe.

With 9-10 hours of glorious sunshine daily throughout the year, it is amazing how much you can fit into a day on a Caribbean holiday. Walking through virgin forests, exploring British Colonial forts from the 17th century, white water rafting, horse riding, golf and of course, any number of water sports in the warm, crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. The evenings are no less exciting. Whether you are tucking into some famed Caribbean food, of which the seafood is certainly not to be ignored, dancing the night away to the always lively beats of Caribbean music or simply watching the sun setting over the sea with your loved one, the balmy evenings are an absolute pleasure to experience on a Caribbean holiday.
