2. Cuba

The biggest of the Caribbean Islands and a real melting pot of culture, great music and passionate people. Being closed-off to many visitors for such a long time gave the island a unique and laid back culture.


The capital of Cuba is a place where time stands still and where you’ll enjoy the best cigar, rum and salsa dancing in the world.


3. Tobago

Not as well known as its sister island Trinidad, but Tobago is actually said to be the island upon which the book Robinson Crusoe was based. The island is a rich tapestry of steep mountains, dense tropical forests and lush beeches.


4. St Lucia

One of the most picturesque Caribbean islands and a perfect place to come for a luxury holiday to lose all sense of time. Stay in some of the best high end resorts where your every whim is catered to and you’ll find yourself blissfully sipping on cocktails with your feet in the sand.

5. The Exumas

Part of the Bahamas group of islands where the sand is as white as you’ll ever see it. When coupled with the emerald blue water, every step feels like you are walking through a postcard.

The main reason for coming here though, is the unique experience of sharing the water with the wild pigs who love nothing more than a nice swim to cool themselves down.

6. Barbados

One of the most southern Caribbean islands, Barbados is a place with a unique charm thanks to the fact it is an independent British Commonwealth nation.

7. Antigua
