The Caribbean is what people are picturing in their heads when they imagine a heavenly vacation. It’s filled with sun, fun, and friendly people that are eager to introduce you to their beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, and crystal-clear beaches.
But with such a lush series of venues to explore, where do you begin? How can you shrink the list of possibilities down to what you can afford? To help, here are the ten (10) most beautiful destinations to visit in the Caribbean.
The British Virgin Islands
Possibly one of the most popular Caribbean destinations, the British Virgin Islands are known for their white sand beaches, particularly on Anegada Island. If you can, a great way to see as much as possible is by yacht or boat tour from the U.S. Virgin Islands.

U.S. Virgin Islands
Try visiting this destination in late Spring after the parties have wrapped up from Carnival. It’s fun during that celebration, but afterward you can enjoy the tranquility of the beaches that run along St. John’s, or the historical fort at St. Croix.

St. Kitts & Nevis
The soft sand will help you relax during the day and the bumping nightlife will get your blood pumping at night. Some really cool festivals take place here, but if you need to slow down, then hop the airy for a daytrip into Nevis, which is much quieter.
