Superb Caribbean Holiday Options
There are lots of different factors to take into account in deciding where to go for your Caribbean holiday. Chances are that once you have been once you will choose to go back to the same place again and again because it only takes one visit to one of these superb islands for it to become a firm favourite.
Antigua & Barbuda
Antigua, (pronounced An-tee-ga) is one of the smaller Caribbean islands, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in diversity and energy. It is a beautiful compact island with everthing you could want, and a different beach for every day of the year. From exquisite accommodation on the beach to beautiful marinas, there is plenty to tempt you, including a wonderful nature reserve on Barbuda, the second main island in the nation.
Whether you are looking for the party centre of the caribbean on Paradise Island, Nassau or Grand Bahama, or the unspoilt natural paradise of Long Island, Cat Island or one of the other Out Islands, the Bahamas have something for everyone, with some of the best diving, and fishing available as well as excellent golf, water sport of all descriptions, and stunningly beautiful beaches.
A long time favourite with UK tourists, and benefiting from direct flight connections with the UK, Barbados is a great choice for most of the things that the Caribbean offers. With English as its official language and a strong British colonial heritage, it is an easy place for UK tourists to feel welcome and at home.
The Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is a revelation to many. Although the language is Spanish, and the very deep-rooted colonial history is largely Spanish, there are direct flights from London and there is plenty of English spoken. There are hundreds of miles of beach, huge nature reserves and plenty to do. What's more, there is absolutely extraordinary value for money in the many excellent all inclusive resorts.
Grenada is a country made up of three inhabited islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Known as 'the spice island of the Caribbean' this is a small, extremely relaxed holiday haven with beautiful beaches. It also has some of the best diving in the world, easily accessible (10 minutes by boat) from the islands. With a wide variety of accommodation and lots to do, this easy to reach little gem must be on your Caribbean wish list!
The original home of the all inclusive concept, Jamaica is a magical holiday playground. It offers huge variety in terms of accommodation, from the most exclusive villas, through a whole range of all inclusive resorts, to boutique hotels, guest houses and holiday rentals. The choices are spread among several different and all wonderful holiday areas, with plenty to do wherever you are.
Although Puerto Rico is a typically Caribbean island, it is also a territory of the United States of America. With both English and Spanish as official languages this is a completely different option, but it offers many of the same opportunities - great beaches, excellent snorkelling and scuba-diving, brilliant surfing, and all the other attractions. Since getting there involves a touch down in a USA city, it is perfectly combined with a USA city break.
Bigger than Barbados, but much smaller than Jamaica, and with a relatively small population, Saint Lucia is a more exclusive option, but is still not out of reach in terms of price. With direct flights from the UK and a very homely feeling for UK holiday makers this gorgeous island has a huge amount to offer.
There are so many great options for golf holidays in the Caribbean. In particular the Bahamas, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic have outstanding courses designed by top designers with challenging golf and stunning views. Talk to us about exactly what you are looking for and we can match you to your perfect golf holiday.
Of course there are dozens of other islands in the Caribbean and we can make bookings to almost all of them. We have included here only those on which we have certified qualifications as specialists. We are busy expanding this group. Watch this space.....
But in the meantime, if there is somewhere else you want information on, just ask us, and if we don't know the answer we know where to find it!
Why limit yourself? You can choose to split your holiday between different parts of one island, or why not go to two or three different islands so that you can decide for yourself which is your favourite? We can arrange for you to do this using regional airlines or ferries in some cases.
One of the best ways to see several different Caribbean islands is to take a cruise. There are countless options available! There are huge ships with incredible variety of dining and on-board entertainment options, or small, ultra luxury cruise ships with all sea-view suites and detailed information on the ports you will be visiting, and, of course, everything in between. There are long or short cruises, and you can combine them with stays in the area at the beginning or end, or both. What's more they are not as expensive as you might think!
Whatever your dream for your Caribbean holiday, we can make sure that your dream comes true and that your holiday is even better than you hope for..
