It’s pretty easy in the wintertime to dream about warmer climates, turquoise waters, and white sand beaches.
You should do something about that.
Winter is the perfect time to let your vacay take you someplace truly exotic!
And we’re here to tell you, there is no place better for this than the Caribbean. But not just ANY Caribbean location … we have our favorites!
The British Virgin Islands, or BVI for short, are some of the most exclusive and least developed islands of the Caribbean.
Thus, their massive appeal.
Others find more than enough to keep them exclusively anchored by these 60 islands and cays, which were hit hard by Hurricane Irma in 2017. Travelers will still be able to find evidence of the hurricane’s handiwork, though a valiant job of rebuilding has happened.
On Tortola, you’ll find mountainous cliffs and chalk-white beaches, changing tides and calm easterly winds. A brief sail away, sleepy Jost Van Dyke offers delicious Caribbean food and drink, one of the region’s best New Year’s Eve parties, as well as a few outdoor excursions like diving and fishing.
On Virgin Gorda, you’ll find The Baths, perhaps the most picturesque shore in the British Virgin Islands, and with good reason: It offers unique grottoes amidst gigantic granite boulders (just be mindful of the day tripping crowds). For supreme seclusion, try Anegada; its slow pace, flat terrain and sparkling sand lies almost overlooked in the Caribbean Sea.
We also love the beautiful and unspoiled St. Lucia – which is developing a significant fan base.
Some of its vacationers are music lovers, letting loose at the springtime St. Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival, or adrenaline junkies, testing their limits climbing The Pitons or zip lining through the Chassin region’s rain forest.
Others are honeymooners, unwinding on one of the island’s chalky beaches or holing up in one of its isolated resorts. St. Lucia is a perfect wedding destination!
To discover some of the island’s indescribable charms, you’ll have to visit for yourself. Get in touch with us here, and let’s chat about a Caribbean getaway next winter for YOU!
Our last “favorite” in this bunch is Curaçao.
As the “C” in the ABC islands, Curaçao features historic settlements, rugged landscapes and plenty of fun in the sun. Curaçao’s main port city, Willemstad, is what an Old World European city would look like if someone dropped it in the Caribbean.
The brightly painted Dutch colonial buildings reflect pinks, yellows and blues into the cerulean St. Anna Bay. Once you leave the city, the landscape shifts to a desert scene, with spiny aloe and mesquite trees sprouting from atop weathered limestone cliffs.
But Curaçao’s real draw is the beach. Picture-perfect bays and coves surround the island – their turquoise waters lapping gently against powdery white sand.
Curaçao’s reefs teem with marine life, providing excellent underwater playgrounds for scuba divers and snorkelers.
Best of all, the semi-arid island is sheltered from the worst of the Atlantic’s hurricane season. Gentle trade winds keep temperatures in the mid-80s, so you can enjoy the outdoors year-round.
