Blue sky days and white sands lapped by warm waters… it’s easy to think of the Caribbean as simply a laidback beach holiday destination. But there’s so much more to do than work on your tan! Discover incredible wildlife above and below the waves as you go whale watching, see turtles hatching or snorkel and dive among tropical fish. Stretch legs hiking the Pitons in St Lucia, test your sailing skills in Antigua
and swim with pigs in Bahamas
– an unforgettable experience.
Caribbean Food & Drink
Your taste buds will come alive when you sample this region's sumptuous spicy feasts. Local specialities such as curry, roast pork and pepperpot stew will all be cooked by the expert chefs at your hotel, but you can go for more familiar tastes if you prefer. Beachside barbeques are a nightly event here, so get ready to tuck into juicy steaks and sizzling sausages beside the gently lapping seas. Cocktails, fresh juices, beers and wines are always available as an accompaniment.
The Caribbean is a diverse area, and on each island there are many wondrous places to explore. In Barbados
, the Mount Gay Rum factory is well worth the trip - you'll get to sample the product and buy a bottle to take home as a memento. Guests with a sweet tooth will adore Belmont Estate in Grenada
, where guides will explain how chocolate is made from the Trinitario cocoa bean. In Jamaica
, music fans can visit the birthplace of Bob Marley in Nine Mile, and his last home in Kingston.
