The Other Caribbean Main Attractions

Luxury small boutique hotels and private villas that will make you think differently about this tourist haven.

Antigua

Antigua

Antigua claims to have one beach for every day of the year, 365 beaches at your disposal. Without a doubt, this tiny island is the go-to-place in the Caribbean, for sun and beach lovers and a barbeque party like none other. Shirley Heights, located on Antigua’s south coast, is the place to be on Sunday’s. This is where locals and visitors gather for an outright island barbeque party, complete with breathtaking panoramic views, a romantic sunset, steel and reggae bands, and the delectable smells and flavours of the barbeque fare. The party happens every Sunday (weather permitting). Organized by The Shirley Heights Restaurant and Bar for more than 30 years now, it is an experience not to be missed!

Bonaire

Bonaire

Bonaire is the smallest of the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao) and remains a special municipality of The Netherlands classifying it as an overseas country and territory of the European Union (EU). The name means “Good Air” and that makes sense because the island is noted for it’s windsurfing and houses one of the premier windsurfing schools in the world, the Bonaire Windsurf Place located at Sorobon on Lac Bay. Take a few lessons or improve your Windsurfing technique by taking instruction given by former Olympians and professional circuit competitors. Don’t worry, if you fall, the water is shallow and warn and with steady tradewinds, all one needs to do is just stand up in the knee-deep water, pick-up your sail and get back on your board.

Dominica

Dominica

Little Dominica, lush and lovely, is a relatively unknown Caribbean destination due to a lack of white sand beaches and no big hotels or package deals. However Dominica will be getting its first large-scale resort chains in 2018 and things will inevitably be different. For now you can bask in the serenity of this unspoiled island that’s covered in rainforest, volcanic peaks, black sand beaches, thriving flora, countless waterfalls, and bubbling underwater springs.

Saint-Barthelemy

The Caribbean’s wealthiest island, St. Barth is a slice of tres chic France.For many years it has been a jet set haunt serving champagne by the bucket and foie gras by the loaf. Gustavia, St. Barth’s primary village, has a Provence-style atmosphere with haute couture boutiques and waterfront restaurants where two hour lunches are de rigeur. With a feel that’s more Mediterranean than Caribbean, everything seems to sparkle on this French West Indies isle.

 

St_Kitts_and_Nevis

Saint Kitts and Nevis

When Christopher Columbus sighted Nevis in 1493 he called it Las Nieves, Spanish for “snow,” because of the cloud forest shrouding Nevis’ peak. Today that same volcanic mountain dominates the tiny island and all its treasures. Mineral hot springs made it famous as a spa in the 18th century and the sugar-cane estates that grew up at the same time now mingle with gingerbread cottages making up most of the island’s architecture. These idyllic sister islands, 2 miles (3 km) apart at their closest point, offer visitors a relatively authentic island experience. Both have luxuriant mountain rain forests; uncrowded beaches; historic ruins; towering and long-dormant volcanoes.
