onboard or savouring some

zesty Jerk Chicken in their

the Caribbean.

Discover the wonders of

the Caribbean

Visit Antigua

The last of the top three destinations in the

Caribbean is Antigua and it boasts one of the

Caribbean's most spectacular coastlines with

secluded coves and sun-drenched beaches.

It has 365 beaches - one for every day of the

year; the most popular ones being Galley Bay

and Hawksbill Beaches. Antigua is extremely

popular with the sailing fraternity with many

marinas packed with expensive yachts. The

island's rolling hills are dotted with stone sugar

mills, relics from the bygone era when sugar was

king. Historic Nelson's Dockyard, where Admiral

Horatio Nelson quartered his fleet in 1784,

attests to Antigua's long and colourful nautical

history during colonial times. And St. John's, the

island's bustling capital, offers visitors a wealth

of boutiques, restaurants and pubs.


Visit Barbados

Probably the most popular of the Caribbean

islands for British holiday makers and definitely

in the top three Caribbean destinations to visit.

There are two reasons for this - the incredible

white sand beaches on the sheltered western

side of the island and the fact that Barbados

is one of the few Caribbean islands solely

colonised by one nation...the Brits! It's no

wonder Bajans describe their country as being

"more English than England herself". But look

around and you know you're not in England:

rich and fertile tropical fields meet a glistening,

azure sea. The soft pastels of old chattel houses

blend with the vibrant reds, oranges, and greens

of roadside fruit stands. In short, Barbados

exudes a charm all of its own.

Visit St. Lucia

St Lucia is another one of the top three islands

in the Caribbean and also one of our favourites.

Nestled below the Pitons, twin peaks rising

over 2,600 feet above the azure waters of the

Caribbean, St. Lucia is an oasis of tropical

calm. The island's capital, Castries, is a town of

charming, pastel-coloured colonial buildings,

home to some 60,000. The first European settler,

Francois Le Clerc, was a French buccaneer.

Le Clerc's countrymen followed in his wake,

establishing the town of Soufriere in 1746.

Within four decades some 50 plantations

flourished on the island. Thus St. Lucia became

part of the Caribbean's 18th-century trade

triangle of sugar, slavery, and rum. Today this

beautiful island welcomes visitors drawn to

its exotic tropical landscape, superb beaches,

crystalline waters, and colourful marine life.
