Life doesn't get more chilled out than on a Caribbean holiday. Picture yourself swinging on a hammock strung between two palm trees, sipping an ice cold cocktail shot with a generous helping of rum. This is a place where the culture is as colourful and vibrant as the stunning scenery. (The sea really is as bright as it looks in the brochures and the sand really is that white.)
Enjoy fast-paced water sports, discover bright coral reefs, or simply lay back and soak up the famous sunshine. Each island has its own unique character, but you'll find much more to see and do beyond the beach: think lively nightlife, bustling towns, soaring mountains and steamy jungles.
Dine on the seafront and see the sun set as you eat the catch of the day, gourmet dishes and local, spicy cuisine. Experience the warm hospitality and laid back island life that keeps people coming back here time and time again.
We've found a selection of gorgeous places to stay in the Caribbean, from hidden retreats to sprawling resorts right on the beach. Now all that's left for you to do is choose the perfect island for you. It's a hard life...
