The long hot summer days, though daunting at times, are the days where people make the most of it and engage in various recreational and sports activities under the sun all the while soaking up the freedom that they have to do whatever they want to do.

Ever thought about making a quick getaway from the coldness and dull climate? Head on over to the Caribbean Islands, where the climate is always warm, the beaches are very sandy and where you can swim, chill, sunbathe, play sports, and relax all day long. Every island provides its own Caribbean flavor and five islands in this popular region are highly considered favorites by tourists from all walks of life.

Cayman Islands

The Caymans is one of the most picturesque islands the Caribbean has to offer. It is one of the premiere diving sites of the world. Take a dive on the seas near Cayman where beautiful barrier reefs and corals lie in wait. For honeymooners, they can trek up the 200-year-old Mastic Trail and enjoy fine dining at one of the island’s top restaurants. Family members with children can take them to go swimming at Stingray City. All in all, the option of activities that you can do around the island is endless.

St. Kitts & Nevis

This little-known island is enormously popular amongst celebrities and A-list Hollywood actors and actresses. The two islands offer various activities for tourist albeit in different ways – St. Kitts has a much more outgoing lifestyle, with the various restaurants and hotels found in Basseterre whereas Nevis provides an atmosphere that is quite but peaceful. Nevis has also hosted a couple of weddings over the years for a lot of people because of its serene and majestic views and overall environment of the island. (Image courtesy of Picture Guy)



Although the typical Caribbean treats – sandy shores, splendid beaches and golf courses – are still prevalent here, the island of Barbados offers a more distinctive aptitude. It is in this island where you can taste the island’s very own Mount Gay Rum with a sting in the tail, participate in a horse race and dance and party the night away to a calypso song. The island is overflowing with spectacular architecture, a sports-oriented society and a holistic and energetic approach on life. English tourists will most certainly enjoy the island of Barbados as, even after obtaining independence from Great Britain, it still retains English traditions and cultures such as afternoon tea.

U.S. Virgin Islands

“America’s Caribbean Paradise” – as most people would like to call it, this island is where you’ll witness a Carnival parade that have dancing moko jumbies, swim in the beaches, do some duty-free shopping, and dine in the finest restaurants where you can smell the spices in a saltfish pate. What makes this island so special compared to the other Caribbean islands is because it is the only island where you can get pampered, eat, swim, surf, explore the three different islands (St. Thomas, St. John & St. Croix) and do other activities – all while paying American dollars.

British Virgin Islands

One of the most select islands in all of the Caribbean that is industrialized the least, the British Virgin Islands is where you’ll find the usual sandy beaches and fine dining. Besides those, you can also view mountainous cliffs and sail over on Jost Van Dyke where it provides scrumptious Caribbean food and drinks. Also feel free to partake in several alfresco adventures such as diving, sailing and fishing.
