Caribbean Best Beaches

Where to find the best beaches in the Caribbean

The Caribbean islands are renowned by their beautiful white sand beaches. With hundreds of sandy beaches around the Caribbean islands, it's difficult to choose the best ones.

Here are our picks for the best beaches in the Caribbean. Enjoy.

St. Barthélemy - the beaches of the rich and famous

St. Barthélemy has the most gorgeous beaches in the Caribbean. This millionaire’s island is dotted with vacation homes of such illustrious families as the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds. Mick Jagger, Beverly Sills, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Billy Joel frequent this island. They are drawn to St. Barts (as the island is affectionately known) by the seductive languor of its lifestyle and its sophisticated French atmosphere.

The island’s most beautiful beach is Anse du Gouverneur, on the south coast. The sand is as soft as talcum powder, and jagged cliffs protect the beach on two sides, giving it a secluded air. It is never crowded. Despite the jet-setters who frequent the island, life on St. Bart’s is homey and small scale. However, it has become pricey. One of the island’s most exclusive resorts is Sapore di Mare, tel. (590)276173, founded by a financier on the board of the American Ballet.

St. Barthélemy, also known as St. Barths, is one of only two completely free trading ports in the Caribbean (the other is St. Martin), and it sells French perfume and champagne at prices lower than in Paris.

St. Thomas’s most beautiful beach

Magens Bay Beach, below Drake’s Seat, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, according to National Geographic. This Caribbean beach is slightly heart shaped and approximately one mile long. The southern and the northern ends of the Magens Bay Beach are rock formations in the water and provide good snorkelling.

Magens Bay Beach is managed by the Magens Bay Authority, who in exchange for entrance fee does the upkeep of the beach and landscaping, as well as showers and toilets. The authority also looks after Life Guards, who are on the beach from 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon, 7 days a week, whole year.

Martinique’s best beaches

Martinique has both silvery beaches and rocky cliffs. Inland are rain forests and a volcano. The island’s most appealing beaches, as well as several petrified wood savanna forests, are in Ste. Anne. The church in the center of town is planted with beautiful tamarind trees. Ste. Anne has two good restaurants: Chez Jack and l’Etoile de Mer. Off Martinique’s coasts are the wrecks of 13 ships, which can be explored by scuba divers. For equipment, visit the Carib Scuba Club in Carbet.

Montserrat’s best beaches

Montserrat’s black-sand beaches (which set it apart from other Caribbean islands) were formed from volcanic ash. The only white-sand beach is also one of the best (and least accessible): Rendezvous Beach. To get to the Rendezvous Beach, board a local charter from the Vue Point Hotel, tel. (809)491-5210. The Vue Point is also a lovely place to stay.

Aruba - the world’s most beautiful beaches

Aruba's beaches are amongst the cleanest and most attractive in the Caribbean. All beaches are public, with easy access through hotels or parkings, which dot along the beaches.

The southwest coast of the island of Aruba is fringed by seven miles of white-sand beaches, considered the most beautiful in the world. In fact, Sports Illustrated was so impressed that it featured the beaches in past Swimsuit Issues.

The most beautiful beach in Jamaica

Jamaica’s longest, most beautiful white-sand beach is Negril, discovered by hippies almost two decades ago. The hippies have gone, but Negril is still a place for the younger crowd. Nude sunbathing is allowed on a section of the beach.

Many of the resorts along this Seven Mile Beach feature nude beaches and swimming pools, as well as bars and hot tubs. If you decide to holiday on this beach, expect to see a lot of Seven Mile Beach sunbathers wearing only their birthday suit.
