Some people visit the Caribbean for sailing, snorkeling, hiking, and stuff like that. Then some like to spend their vacation days with a rum punch in hand and enjoying the wide stretches of sand coming out of the sea.
If you fall into the second group of tourists and love to hit the beach, you will find our list quite helpful. The beaches on our list are here simply because they are picture-perfect.
For an unforgettable Caribbean vacation, you might want to hit the sand on the following beaches.
1. Sugar Beach (St.Lucia)
Sugar Beach is probably the single most beautiful beach in St. Lucia. Situated between St.Lucia’s Twin Pitons, many know this beach also as Jalousie Beach. Even though the beach is part of the super-luxury Viceroy resort, day visitors are welcomed.
2. Eagle Beach (Aruba)
There is no shortage of unique beaches in Aruba. However, Eagle Beach is considered one of the best, no matter what you consider. This spectacularly beautiful beach is rarely too crowded, and the favorite breeding ground for sea turtles. Plus, there you can find a few of the very photogenic divi-divi trees.
3. Grace Bay (Turks & Caicos)
By default, Grace Bay is on every list of top beaches to visit in the Caribbean and why it shouldn’t be with all those powdery-white sand, super-clear azure waters, and curving palm trees. What’s typical for the Grace Bay beach is that large waves are quite rare. That makes it ideal for all sorts of water sports such as stand-up paddleboarding.
4. Maracas Bay (Trinidad & Tobago)
Maracas Bay is the number one beach in Trinidad and Tobago. People hold the Maracas Bay in high regard because of many reasons such as its soft sand, the rainforest that takes you to the beach, the local food dishes, etc.
While you are there, trying fried shark meat with flatbread is a must-try local recipe. If you want, you can even dip it with some of the local sauces that are also exceptionally tasty.
5. Pink Sands Beach (Bahamas)
The beach is situated on Harbour Island and features a distinctive rosy hue that comes from the organisms on the coral reefs shore. By all accounts, it is a spectacular and highly photogenic beach. Horseback riding along the seashore and snorkeling are the two most common activities.
6. Seven Mile Beach (Cayman Islands)
This is the first and most popular beach from all beaches found within the Cayman Islands. The Seven Mile Beach is the perfect combination of crystal clear waters and dreamy stretches of pure white sand. Some of the most common activities on this beach include snorkeling and stand-up paddleboarding.
7. Bathsheba Beach, Barbados
Fans of rugged and wild beaches will have the most fun at Bathsheba Beach. It is a place where waves can get really big, which makes it ideal for surfing. On the other hand, it’s not suitable for swimming and water sports that require calm waters.
