Get an insight into just some of the top beaches in the Caribbean at destinations including The Bahamas, British Virgin Islands and Jamaica to name but a few.

Half Moon Bay, Saint Phillip Parish, Antigua

    Both Dutch side and French side of St-Maarten are not bad at all. I was there last April and plan to be back there for another time.

    Some beautiful beaches! I’ve got a lot of traveling to do still. :) Grace Bay is definitely one place on the top of my list.

  6. Kenny says:

    Valley Church beach is the best in Antigua in my opinion, surpasses Half Moon Bay. All about opinions I suppose

    Pink Sands is indeed gorgeous. We visited it on our sailing voyage of discovery to find an island home. The pink comes from millions of ground down shells. But also gorgeous are our beaches here in Grenada West Indies (yes we did indeed find our home) 😎

  8. Thank you sir, this is a nice list with good information to help travelers visiting the Caribbean. Next time hoping to see your top 10 beaches list in the Caribbean. All the Best.

  9. Perfect to see Half Moon Beach in Antigua there – I went there last week and had to take a deep breath rounding the bend on the drive in – the view and the colours are truly magnificent …. and breathtaking!

    The Bahamas, that to me was always a rich and famous kind of place, not really accessible for us normal folk. Times are changing. It can still be pretty pricey heading to the Caribbean though but I imagine it’s worth it because you don’t get this kind of perfection very often. I’m not sure how I’ve not heard of The Baths before. Considering the grey skies here I think it would be dangerous for me to go to there because I’d never want to leave. This is almost cruel, showing us these too good but true places!
