Originally posted on

Are you looking for a tropical getaway? Some fun in the sun with white sands, crystal blue water, and drinks that always seem full? This idea seems nice, but the choices for a beach vacation can be overwhelming–and costly.

Luckily, the Caribbean Islands offer great beaches, amazing restaurants, and a laid-back lifestyle that can’t be matched elsewhere. Additionally, you will find these islands far less expensive than you may think!

Keep reading to find out the top five places you should include on your next Caribbean vacation!

1. The Cayman Islands

Some people enjoy staying dry and lounging on the beach while others enjoy partaking in SCUBA, snorkeling, or other watersports. Whatever your perfect choice of beach activity is, the Cayman Islands can fill that desire.

As this group of islands is known as a financial hub, you will also be able to fully relax and enjoy high-end shopping and fine meals. Additionally, you can rest assured that this destination is safe with very little criminal activity affecting tourists.

If you aren’t entirely sure that the Cayman Islands or any particular destination is the best fit for your entire vacation, now may be the perfect time to explore Caribbean cruises!

2. Antigua

The island of Antigua offers gorgeous beaches, 365 of them to be exact, however, there is also plenty of fascinating colonial history!

Antigua was visited by Christopher Columbus in 1493, became British territory, then was conquered by the French, and later attacked by the Caribs. If you are looking to learn a bit more about Caribbean history, this island may be perfect for you!

3. Barbuda

Barbuda may be considered a sister island to Antigua as it is only about 39 miles away. Although it is close in range, this choice is far more laid back and less touristy.

For those wishing to relax on a pink sand beach without the hoards of tourists or simply have a quiet, romantic getaway, Barbuda might just be perfect!

4. St. Martin (St. Maarten)

This island comes to mind for several reasons including the beautiful beaches and lively nightlife. It does hold a bit of a surprise though!

The Princess Juliana International Airport offers Maho Beachgoers quite a show of low-flying planes as they take off or land! The take-offs and landings are posted in various locations to allow you to prepare yourself, cover your years, and grab hold of your belongings.

5. Saint Kitts & Nevis

Although these islands are technically separate, they are easy to visit during one trip and will offer a little something for everyone.

For travelers looking for entertainment, great drinks, and all-night dancing, St. Kitts is a prime choice. Just a ferry ride away is the island of Nevis. This hidden gem offers a challenging hike to the summit of Nevis Peak–a volcano.

Whether you are a vacationer looking for fun times and flowing drinks or a nature-lover searching for wildlife and the tranquility of Mother Earth, you will find it!

There’s No Shortage of Caribbean Islands

We’ve only listed five of the 7,000 Caribbean Islands that can become part of your favorite vacation routine. Though this list gives you a fair idea of what to expect, finding your preference may take some time (and a few vacations.)

Ideally, a Caribbean vacation will allow you to experience several islands during your trip. This can happen by booking a cruise, careful planning on your part, or using a travel agent.
