When you’re asked to think of the Caribbean, what image springs to mind? Sun, sand, surf and delicious exotic fruit? Friendly locals wearing brightly-coloured clothing? Spectacular natural scenes with waterfalls, rocky cliffs and forests? Crystal clear waters filled with vibrant tropical fish?
These images might seem like a stereotype, but they’re in your mind for a reason. Caribbean islands really are colourful, welcoming and bright, which is why so many people choose them for luxury breaks.
Every year, tens of thousands of people book luxury holidays in Antigua, visits to Bahamas and luxury getaways to Barbados, Bermuda, St. Lucia, Grand Cayman and a whole host of other attractive destinations. There, they find five star hotels and wonderful attractions, as well as some of the best festivals on the planet.
So, what is it that makes the Caribbean appeal to people looking for luxury holidays?
Pristine and peaceful, with warm seas and shaded areas, the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean are the biggest overall attraction. When people imagine Caribbean holidays they think of ice cold cocktails, steel drum music and gently swinging hammocks. For romantic holidays, you won’t get better than visits to Caribbean islands where sunset walks along the beach are a popular activity.
The people of the Caribbean really know how to celebrate. Colourful festivals and carnivals can be enjoyed throughout the year, with each island offering a varied calendar of events. The Antigua Carnival is a favourite with tourists, and the Junkanoo street parades are a sight to behold in the Bahamas.
Caribbean cuisine features a fusion of flavours from all over the world, with plenty of tropical influence. Peppers, beans, plantains, fresh tomatoes, sweet potatoes and coconut all feature heavily in the dishes served throughout the Caribbean, alongside rice and meat. Jerk seasoning is often used to add flavour to poultry, fish and pork whilst drinks served on the island include flavourful juices, chilled beers and delicious cocktails.
