Island Bliss

You'll see glorious, pure sand beaches on every Caribbean island, but there's so much more to discover here. Each has its own unique flavour; from Jamaica's reggae beats and St lucia's jungle landscapes to the relaxed vibe of Antigua and the charms of beautiful Barbados, you can dip in and out of many different cultures. Or, you can simply hit the hammock and soak up the sun.  Need more inspiration? Find your perfect Caribbean island here, and check out our latest deals or suggested multi centre holidays.

Caribbean Specialities

The Caribbean proudly presents a mouth-watering selection of flavours and types of food.  Outside of the hotels, you can choose from a tempting range of restaurants, bars, beach cafes and local food stalls which are guaranteed to tempt and satisfy all food tastes. 
 

Typical dishes have a tropical flavour and take full advantage of the fresh fish and fruit available in abundance.  

Street Food

Delicious local food can be enjoyed throughout the islands, with even more local flavour.   
 
Regular fish-fry evenings and weekly parties are great venues for sampling the local specialities. Notably at Shirley Heights on Antigua, Sunday School in Tobago, Anse La Raye in St Lucia and Oistins in Barbados. All washed down with a local beer or one of the various rums which the Caribbean is famous for. Rum factories are a great diversion too from the beach and you’ll learn lots of interesting facts about how Rum is produced.  
 
The Local markets, bursting with colourful fruit and vegetables are well worth a visit too, for instance Grenada, where you can buy locally grown spices.  And we shouldn’t forget our sweet teeth! Be sure to visit a Cocoa Plantation and take home some chocolate.  

 

Customs & Traditions

The Caribbean is home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. St Lucia of course, has her distinctive mountains with the twin Pitons and Barbados' capital Bridgetown has the military garrison.  Cuba is the clear winner though, with nine Heritage Sites, including the colonial cities of Havana and Trinidad. 
 
The original inhabitants of the Caribbean were Carib and Arawak Indians, later replaced by European settlers.   Split into four main areas – English, French, Spanish and Dutch, the West Indian islands are recognised through their distinctive language, culture and architecture which reflects their African heritage.  “Patois” is a local language, combining a mixture of English, French and African.
 
The best way to experience the culture of the Caribbean is to join the locals at one of their numerous carnivals and festivals.  Some of the best known are Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, CropOver in Barbados and Junkanoo in The Bahamas.  

 

Wildlife

The islands of the Caribbean are gloriously rich in natural assets and the people there are very proud of their eco-credentials. 
Not just another sun, sand and sea destination, there is so much more to the Caribbean.  Hike or hire a car for a day to explore more and see the natural wonders, such as mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls and lakes which cover the islands of the Caribbean. 
 
From Whale watching in the Dominican Public and the Turks and Caicos Islands to watching turtles on the beach in Barbados and Antigua there is so much to do and see. Several islands have national parks and Tobago, fast becoming a premier eco-destination, has lush rainforests and a myriad of wildlife and birds to enjoy.
