Synonymous with paradise, the islands of the Caribbean conjure images of idyllic beaches and coconut groves. In reality, the region offers so much more and, with more than 7,000 islands in the Caribbean, every visit offers something different or somewhere new to explore. From the popular charter spots of the Bahamas, Nassau, St Barths to quiet, unspoilt beaches, there is truly something for everyone. From pink sand to swimming pigs, the Caribbean provides every version of paradise. This is a particularly popular winter destination, swapping short winter days for a sun-filled paradise.
