Beautiful white-sand beaches are as common to the Caribbean as air and sunshine. The U. Virgin Islands is fortunate to have many such beaches.
But which stretches of sand are the best Caribbean beaches for your next trip? Others made the cut for the best Caribbean beaches because they have special features that make them unforgettable. Swimming with friendly pigs, anyone? For the perfect Caribbean vacation, pack your flip-flops and hit the sand at one of these beaches.
With so much destruction during Hurricane's Irma and Maria over a year ago, I am thrilled to report most of the best beaches and waterfront hotels are back in action with quite a few of them better than before. The perfect retreat for millions of tourists worldwide, the Caribbean not only offers up an amazing escape from cold winter climates but also creates memories to last for a lifetime. Some of my finest memories include floating in the bathtub-warm waters of Aruba, sailing in the British Virgin Islands, deep sea fishing in Nicaragua and countless others.
Though some of the best spots are attached to resort properties, you can still enjoy them. Many resorts even have parking set aside for the public. While the hotels can prohibit anyone but guests from using the pool or the beach chairs and hammocks, they cannot make you leave the beach.
The Caribbean Beaches are without a doubt among the best in the world. Beautiful beaches with soul-warming sun, crystal-clear waters and white or even pink sand. Palm Beach in Aruba features white sand and excellent swimming conditions in calm water.
The fastest route to paradise, especially for East Coasters and Midwesterners, is usually a quick jaunt to a Caribbean beach. White sand, turquoise water, jealous Instagram followers -- what more could you ask for? But which beach is right for you?
Warm, calm and protected waters make this a great place to see turtles and other marine life. Sandy Pigeon Point divides two distinct beach experiences: calm waters sheltered by the Buccoo Reef on one side, and breezy Bon Accord Lagoon — ideal for windsurfing and kiteboarding — on the other. Modestly scaled resorts ensure that you can get a drink or snack when needed, but the lack of high-rises keeps the atmosphere laid-back.
On the southern side of the island is the beach at White Bay, which is named after a Dutch pirate, Jost van Dyke. It is home to a variety of bars, the most famous probably being the Soggy Dollar Bar — it gets its name from the fact that White Bay is accessible only by boat, and most patrons have to swim in and will hand over soggy dollar bills. The beach is not one of the more popular destinations for tourists, and the lack of people makes it a local favorite.
