Caribbean Beaches

Some of the Caribbean’s Best Beaches – Exposed!

White sandy beaches edged with the ocean’s aqua tones are always inviting, and every local has a favorite spot for sunbathing or just liming!

Jolly Beach, AntiguaJolly Beach – On the West coast of Antigua at Jolly Harbour, offers a mile long white sand beach, crystal clear and warm waters. With a variety of restaurants, watersports, and shopping amenities nearby, it’s a great place to spend a day!

Long Beach Barbuda has one strand on the west coast that continues virtually unbroken for 17 miles. The sand varies ever so slightly along its length – mostly it’s sugar white, but in some sections, tiny remnants of broken shells give the beach a beautiful pink hue!

Mullet Bay Beach, St. MaartenMullet BayOne of St. Maarten’s prettiest and most popular beaches. Very active on weekends as tourist and locals alike flock to the beach for island barbecues and surfing.

Orient BeachOn French St. Martin is a great place for freewheeling Riviera-style revelry, with lounge chairs and water-sports equipment for rent, chic restaurants and body-painting. Try the parasailing, or just watch from the beach.

Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica, runs north from George Town, curling around the west coast of the island, protected by a reef that ensures calm water and ideal conditions for swimming and snorkeling.

Shell Beach, St. BartsShell Beach – One of St. Barts’ most unique as it’s the only major beach located “in town,” in this case in the heart of the capital city of Gustavia. The beach has calm waters and is a welcome respite after a day spent in the shops and boutiques in town. For a little adventure, there’s the opportunity to do some cliff-diving, restaurants and cocktails on site.

Crane Beach– Barbados – breezy, pink beach with rugged cliffs, rolling dunes and turquoise waters has been dubbed one of the sexiest beaches in the world.
