Introducing the Caribbean

The Caribbean islands have been captivating travellers for centuries. They are most famous for their beaches — stretches of palm-backed sugar-soft sand that rise from gin clear shadows in a striking blue sea - but it's also an easy life in the islands.

The climate is wonderful virtually year-round, the pace of life is laid-back and the people are generally charming and welcoming. And the islands are relatively close to the USA and UK, by comparison with other tropical destinations. The Caribbean is a perfect place to take time out and relax.

Although the islands are often visible from one another over just a few miles of sea, they are surprisingly different. Some are lively and developed, with a strong local culture of music and dance, some have excellent hotels and restaurants. Others are the archetypal dozy island idyll, just a spit of sand with a few palm trees. And there are literally scores of them, so which is the best Caribbean island?  This is one of the trickiest questions to answer because it so much depends on what you are looking for, but there's bound to be one that's ideal for you.
