You’ll find Bridgetown strikes a fine mix of island warmth and English heritage. Stately colonial buildings intermingle with colorful wooden homes, open-air markets, and catch-of-the-day cafes. Outside of the bustle of “Town,” as the locals call it, Barbados is a new kind of paradise in any direction. Cruise to Barbados and head towards the shore for pink-and-white-sand beaches that stretch on endlessly and crystal clear turquoise waters. Or stick to the center of the island, you’ll find rolling hills and valleys, sugarcane fields and historic plantations. You can even travel underground to discover limestone caves with their own waterfalls.

Secluded white sand beaches lapped by sparkling waters, vibrant coral reefs, and hiking trails through lush, emerald jungles — St. Vincent and the Grenadines embody what most people think of when picturing the perfect Caribbean getaway. Kingstown, St. Vincent’s capital and main port, is a beautiful place to kick off your exploration of the main island’s many wonders. With its beautiful botanical gardens, charming 19th-century churches, lively produce market and rainforest rambles, it has plenty to keep you busy in between beach breaks.

GOING TO THE CHAPEL

St. Vincent has its fair share of charming churches, many located right within Kingstown. Pass by the 200-year-old Cathedral Church of St. George and gaze at its gorgeous stained glass windows. Then visit the Assumption Cathedral. Though the present building was completed in the 1930s, its architecture is an impressive combination of Moorish, Byzantine, Venetian, Romanesque and Flemish.
Insider tip
Many spots in St. Vincent take U.S. dollars, but if you find yourself in need of the local currency, there are lots of ATMs on the island.

HIT THE TRAILS

Hiking is one of the best things to do in St. Vincent, since the island has an abundance of beautiful trails. One of the most famous hikes is the trail up Mount Soufrière — it’s a difficult climb, but offers stunning views. The Vermont Nature Trail is an easier option that winds through the rainforest within the St. Vincent Parrot Reserve.
Insider tip
There are plenty of great restaurants in St. Vincent, but you can’t beat the local street food.

As on any Caribbean island, the star of St. Vincent’s cuisine is fresh-caught seafood. Savor dishes made with conch, whelk, lobster and jackfish, which is often fried and served with the island’s famous breadfruit.

From 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Greens in every shade spring from the rolling hills of St. Kitts— an island ripe with eco-tourism adventures. In the port city of Basseterre, you’ll find centuries of history to explore in impressive estates and photo-worthy monuments like the Brimstone Hill Fortress, one of the best preserved military structures in the Americas. Cruise to St. Kitts & Nevis and venture beyond the port and gear up for a unique climb up the 3,792-foot Mount Liamuiga volcano for views well worth the hike. Or hop in a kayak to get up close with a rainbow of tropical reef fish. Looking for something a little more laidback? Escape to the tiny unhurried sister island, Nevis, for smooth golden beaches and clear-water snorkeling— it’s just a thirty minute ferry ride away.

TAKE A HIKE

Hit the Mount Liamuiga trail and trek through towering trees, tangled vines, and tropical flowers to the crater of the 3,792-foot dormant volcano. At the peak of your 6-mile ascent, you’ll be rewarded with a view that goes so far, you can see neighboring islands.
Insider tip
Tipping taxi drivers isn’t necessary. In restaurants, 10-15% gratuity is standard.

HIT THE STRIP

Insider tip
Six ferries are available to take you on the 45-minute trip between the islands.

ALL ABOARD

In fact, it’s the smallest land mass in the world to be shared by two different nations. While it may be less than 40 square miles, there’s plenty to do on this little island: you can travel back in time while exploring centuries-old ruins and get your adrenaline fix ziplining through lush tropical forests.

From 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Antigua has a beach for every day of the year— literally. But the island experience goes beyond 365 distinct ribbons of white sand and clear waters. In the capital city of St. John's, you’ll discover charming candy-colored architecture, lively markets, and a beautiful baroque cathedral. And smiling locals greet you everywhere you go. On the southern coast, you can explore Nelson’s Dockyard, a centuries-old British naval base built by Admiral Horatio Nelson. Past Antigua’s yacht-studded coastline, you’ll find upscale boutiques, wild forest trails, hidden coves, and coral reefs bustling with tropical fish. But the best way to really see the island is from up above, so cruise to Antigua and hop into a helicopter for a panoramic look at lush jungles, golden beaches, and the nearby volcanic island, Montserrat.

HUNT FOR HISTORY

Explore Betty’s Hope, two restored stone windmill towers that were once part of Antigua’s first major sugar plantation. The site dates back to the mid-1600s.
Insider tip
Antigua is the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean islands, so don’t forget your sunscreen. Do not wear camouflage clothing— it’s against the law  in Antigua— and leave your beach attire for the beach.
