First thing’s first. When you’re talking about beaches in the Caribbean, you’re already talking about some of the best beaches in the entire world. There is, after all, a reason that people from around the world choose to take their vacations at one of the many wonderful destinations throughout the Caribbean! However, just because pretty much every Caribbean beach is awesome, that doesn’t mean that they’re all created equally.
Quite the contrary, there are some Caribbean beaches that are truly a cut above the rest. On this list, we’ve collected what we believe to be the five best of those beaches. In some cases, we’ve selected the beach simply for the kind of relaxing (and tourist-free) environment that it offers the enterprising traveler. In other cases, we’ve selected the beach because it promises you an experience unlike any other you’ll have in the entire world.
In short, these beaches are nothing short of amazing. Now, to be sure, your favorite Caribbean beach may not have made the cut – but remember that this is our subjective opinion. In either event, come check out what we’ve selected! If nothing else, it will put you in that tropical state of mind that you know you love.
1. Chatham Bay (Union Island)
Situated on a beautiful and undeveloped northern side of Union Island, this amazing beach offers an uninhibited experience.
If you’re in need of a little adventure, though, don’t worry! There’s everything from kayaking and snorkeling to be had here.
The island of Barbuda is home to a beautiful stretch of sand that extends off the island’s west coast.
You may think that you’ve walked on soft sand before, but you haven’t truly until you’ve set foot on this pristine beach.
3. White Beach (Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands)
Just take a look at that picture – isn’t it painfully obvious why this beach deserves a spot on this list?
But, there’s one thing you can’t capture in a picture. The temperature at this beach is almost always 80 degrees, no matter what time of year it is.
4. Pink Sands (Bahamas)
If you’re making a list of the best beaches in the Caribbean who can you skip the one with pink sand?
The answer is that you can’t. For our money, this is the best place in the Caribbean to go if you’re looking for romance.
5. Tulum (Mexico)
This powdery white beach opens up to warm, blue and inviting tropical waters that are perfect for swimming.
But you might spend more time looking inland, where Mayan ruins look down upon you from the hillside.
