Jamaica island – The third largest island of the Greater Antilles.

Are you looking for a warm paradise island to escape to for a while?

With over 35 unique destinations, the Caribbean provides a wide variety of tropical isles for all kinds of vacationers.

Beach-goers will be delighted with the white sand beaches in most of the Caribbean; those in search of waves will want to head to beaches on the eastern side of those islands closest to the Atlantic, while snorkelers may prefer the calmer waters of beaches facing the Caribbean Sea.

There are many other ways to enjoy the warm waters off the shores of these beautiful islands, including surfing, sailing, scuba diving, windsurfing, and swimming with dolphins!

On land, the larger towns provide excellent shopping opportunities, lush rainforests are home to hundreds of plant and bird species, and golf courses and horse stables provide some other activities.

Range of Sizes

The islands also range in size and popularity; some attract cruise ships, shoppers, or families, while others are small and secluded — perfect for newlyweds on their honeymoons and for romantic anniversary trips.

All in all, there are about 50 islands in the Caribbean, ranging from small coral outcrops to large nations.

Trade Winds

The Windward Islands include Grenada, St. Lucia, Dominica, and St. Vincent.

These four islands face the Trade Winds in a line of volcanic peaks, and are known for its breathtaking beaches. Because the Windwards were once owned by France, French heritage is still strong there.

There is also a heavy African influence, with many islanders descendants of African slaves that were freed in 1834.

Of the four islands, St. Lucia ranks as the most developed and most frequently visited, with Grenada also a tourist destination, particularly for sailors and divers.

Dominica offers both nature tourism and scuba diving.

Of all the Windward Islands, St. Vincent is the most untouched and least visited.

The six Leeward Islands lie in two lines.

The rain-forested peaks of a volcano chain include Montserrat, Nevis, and St. Kitts, and lie to the west.

Antigua, Barbuda, and Anguilla

To the east are the volcanic ranges of Antigua, Barbuda, and Anguilla.

These islands are known for their coral limestone and some of the nicest beaches in the Caribbean.

The Leeward Islands were British colonies for many years, but today all but Montserrat and Anguilla are fully independent.

The main source of economy for the Leeward Islands is tourism, and all have something special to offer.

Because of their British history, the islanders are English speakers.

The Virgin Islands are divided between the British and United States, and the division couldn’t be more obvious.

While the United States islands cater to tourists and offer many entertainment choices, the British islands are more secluded and quiet.

There are three main United States Virgin Islands: St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix. Although there are many more British Virgin Islands, the two largest islands are Tortola and Virgin Gorda.

Just like they sound, the French Antilles exude a French influence when it comes to culture, food, and lifestyle.

Volcanic Islands 

They spread across 350 miles between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and include two volcanically active islands.

The French Antilles are made up of two regions: the larger island of Martinique, and Guadeloupe, which comprises the six islands of Les Saintes, La Desirade, Marie-Galante, Saint-Barthelemy, and St. Martin.

While tourism is a primary mainstay of the French Antilles economy, the islands are still known as some of the most peaceful and authentic islands in the entire Caribbean region.

Dutch islands

The Netherlands Antilles include Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Saba, Sint Eustatius, and Sint Maarten.

These Dutch islands are known for their excellent beaches and some of the region’s best preserved reefs.

Much of the Dutch influence is still visible on the islands, including their currency, their foods, and their pastel painted and gabled houses.

Also interesting is the language in the Netherlands Antilles.

The islands actually have their own language, called Papiamento, which is a mix of Spanish and Dutch, with some Portuguese, English, and African influences.

The other Caribbean states and Commonwealth of Puerto Rico are separated by physical distances and other obstacles.

The states include Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands as well as Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Dominican Republic.

Each of these island entities has its own government and its own culture, as well as different visitor attractions.

Must Know:

Passports for the Caribbean are required, so be sure to have yours up to date.
