Where we go in Caribbean
Aruba calls itself One Happy Island, and it’s pretty easy to see why. The Arubans’ reasons to be cheerful start with their beaches – the island is circled by almost 70 kilometres of sandy shoreline. The stretch that gets the most attention is the 11-kilometre sweep linking Palm and Eagle beaches. The latter even made it into the top three on TripAdvisor’s 2017 poll of the world’s best beaches.
This little island is a firm holiday favourite – and for good reason. Beyond the amazing beaches, it lines up rainforest-covered mountains, lively towns, and locals with a laid-back approach that’s textbook Caribbean.
Hear the word Jamaica and you’re likely to picture white beaches, spicy jerk chicken and a certain Bob Marley. And you’d be spot on – the Caribbean clichés come thick and fast on this laidback island.
On the surface, Barbados ticks off all the Caribbean clichés – white sands, bright-blue waters, coconut palms. But look closer and you’ll find this little island’s got a British slant to it. Think afternoon tea on the terrace, cricket matches on manicured greens, and elegant colonial houses.
