When sailing around the Caribbean, one of the most difficult decisions you will make is which specific destinations you must visit. Because let’s face it, there’s no place in the Caribbean that isn’t magical. With this in mind, here are the top three places where anyone sailing around the Caribbean should visit.
This 35-square-mile island has 33 of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. There are no pebble-strewn coastlines or rocky shores here, just sandy sweeps begging to be immortalized on Instagram. The sun is a permanent feature in Anguilla, and the island is surrounded by a magnificent coastline crying to be walked on barefoot. If taking in the palm-fringed bays while a tropical drink melts in your hand sounds like a good idea, this is the place to be.
In addition to the beautiful beaches and sunset view, Anguilla is also quite affordable. Resorts and villa prices have gone down over the years and aren’t as stratospheric as they used to be. The locals are pretty chilled out too. It is not uncommon to hear the pounding of dominoes on make-shift wooden tables by smiling faces-an atmosphere that is almost contagious.
If the aforementioned reasons aren’t enticing enough, perhaps the addictive smell of smokey jerk chicken grilling on the shores will do the trick. Anguilla is bursting with gourmet restaurants serving everything from the Caribbean, American to Italian delicacies.
It’s not at all difficult to find reasons why you should visit the Bahamas. When most people think of the Bahamas, paradise island, white sand, and crystal blue beaches come to mind. However, these are just a tip of what the island has to offer.
This Caribbean nation’s geographic location, weather, culture and 700 unique islands, make it a must-have in your bucket-list if you plan on sailing around the Caribbean. With historic tourist attractions such as The Long island museum, Columbus Monument, Dean’s blue hole and Adderly plantation, it’s difficult to think of any close rival to the Bahamas.
The crystal clear water, reefs and marine life in the Bahamas, make it the must-go-to destination if you’re into scuba diving and snorkelling. You won’t have to worry about anything since all scuba diving companies are approved and monitored by the Bahamas Diving Association. The hospitality is also world-class with several upscale restaurants well spread around this Caribbean nation.
3. St. Martin
A home away from home, St Martin is another must have in your bucket-list if you plan on sailing around the Caribbean. With over 120 nationalities, St. Martin is a truly magical and international place. Here you will find the friendliest and most cheerful people. The weather is great throughout the year making it convenient to travel whenever you like.
You can choose either a remote desert beach or one with buzzy and rocky cliffs from one of St. Martin’s 37 beaches. This makes it an ideal place to visit with family and to do activities such as scuba diving, jet skiing, and snorkelling among others.
Another great reason to visit st. Martin is that the whole island is duty-free and you can find great bargains on clothes, jewellery, and electronics. With all the best shops and stores located here, you can buy literally anything you want tax-free!
