Beautiful and Romantic Islands of the Caribbean
A favorite of North American honeymooners, Jamaica is a mountainous island that rises abruptly from the sea. Jamaica is a fascinating island.

Great beaches, glittering casinos, hotels in all price brackets, sports and eco-tourism offerings, good hearty food, and sizzling salsa clubs. San Juan, the island's capital, has some of the most extensive and best-preserved Spanish colonial neighborhoods in the New World, with historic sites and much to see and do, and a steady flow of cruise-ship passengers who keep the stores and casinos filled throughout much of the year.
The British Virgin Islands (B.V.I.)
Tortola is the main island, followed by Virgin Gorda, where you'll find some of the poshest hotels in the West Indies. Anegada, a coral atoll geologically different from the other members of the B.V.I., mainly attracts the yachting set. Come here for the laid-back lifestyle, the lovely sandy beaches and the friendly people.
The Cayman Islands
Until the millennium, Grand Cayman enjoyed one of the most closely knit societies in the Caribbean, although recent prosperity has created some socioeconomic divisions. The warm, crystal-clear waters and the colorful marine life in the offshore reefs surrounding the island attract scuba divers and snorkelers. Many hotels line the luscious sands of Seven Mile Beach.
St. Kitts & Nevis
St. Kitts is a lush, fertile mountain island with a rainforest and waterfalls, it is crowned by the 3,734 ft., Mount Liamuiga, a crater that, thankfully, has remained dormant. St. Kitts is home Brimstone Hill, the Caribbean's most impressive fortress. Come here for the beaches and the history, for lush natural scenery, and to stay at a restored plantation home that's been turned into a charming inn. Lots of sporting activities, ranging from mountain climbing to horseback riding, are also available.
Nevis is known for its long beaches of both black and white sand, more so than any other island in the Caribbean, has turned its former great houses, built during the plantation era, into some of the most charming and atmospheric inns in the West Indies. It also has the Four Seasons Resort for those who want world-class elegance and service.
Turks & Caicos
These islands are actually part of the Bahamas.
Home of Cockburn Town, the capital of Turks and Caicos (Kayk-us), Grand Turk nevertheless has a small-town atmosphere. Grand Turk is ringed by abundant marine life, but most of the island's surface is flat, rocky, and dry. The diving is world class -- the main draw for most visitors.
One of the larger islands of Turks and Caicos, Providenciales, or Provo, boasts their 12 mile beach and pristine coastline. Whatever Turks and Caicos has to offer in organized sports is here, including the nation's only golf course, boat tours, and diving excursions.
The U.S. Virgin Islands
St. Croix is the largest and flattest of the U.S. Virgins, and St. Thomas and St. John are more mountainous.
All three islands offer stunning beaches, great snorkeling, sailing, and lovely scenery. If you want great shopping and lots of diversions, facilities, bars, restaurants, and modern resort hotels, go to St. Thomas, sometimes referred to as the shopping mall of the Caribbean. Cruise-ship passengers pass through constantly. St. Croix also has good facilities, though not as many as St. Thomas. It's more laid-back, a better place to escape for peace and quiet. St. John is most often visited on a day trip from St. Thomas. Much of this island is devoted to a national park.
St Lucia Is for Lovers!
Saint Lucia is renowned as one of the world’s most romantic destination as the island offers soft, white sand, azure waters and beautiful views everywhere you turn. When planning a romantic escape, choose activities that will enhance the mood of the trip.
The island is located in the Caribbean Sea, which is south of Florida and the U.S. Gulf States. One of the Windward islands, and is situated between Martinique and St. Vincent, and to the north-west of Barbados. It has two airports Hewanorra International Airport and George Charles Airport.
Rising tall from a Caribbean sea base and covered in emerald-colored vegetation, these volcanic land formations are the most iconic sight in all of St. Lucia.
This gorgeous shore, just south of Castries along the central western coast, is idyllic Caribbean: complete with swaying palm trees, anchored boats, and white sand beaches. Travel guides describe Marigot as romantic and it's true that it's more blissfully quiet.
Arguably the best beach on St. Lucia for snorkeling and diving, picturesque Anse Chastanet is also a more peaceful alternative to the sands of Reduit Beach. If you're indecisive about lodging, you should consider the nearby resort of the same name. Recent guests appreciate its attentive staff and unspoiled views of the water.
