Caribbean Island Finder

Your 411 to paradise

Ready to unplug yourself and drift away to the island of your dreams? Better make a move before someone else takes your spot. Use this handy guide to find the one that's just right for you.

Caribbean SunshineCaribbean SunshineAntigua: With more than 300 beaches to choose from, there's lots of room here to lose yourself. And if you're into textile-free vacations, we recommend Hawksville Beach. Bring your lunch or buy a one-day pass because there are no restaurants here.

Aruba: If you've ever been to Aruba you'll agree it's like visiting your beautiful older cousin for the weekend. Everything here is more polished and stylish than many Caribbean islands. But if you're looking for the kind of fun that you had in college, it's here too. Check out Mi Dushi and reacquaint yourself with your younger, free-spirit.

Barbados: A surfer coastline dominates the Atlantic side while idyllic shores will calm your troubled soul along the Caribbean shore. Skip the sometimes noisy Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap and chart a course for the eastern side of the island where you'll find wilderness hiking trails, surf sports and a delicious sampling of local culture.

Curacao: Savor the delightful blend of Dutch and Caribbean cuisine amidst a sorbet-colored landscape. Start with the most popular dish - Edam cheese filled with savory stew and baked until yummy.

Jamaica: A recent push to improve its international image has put this Caribbean hot-spot back on the map. You'll find sparkling beaches, gorgeous cliffs and a healthy choice of all-inclusive resorts. For some real fun, zip-line across the jungle canopy in Ocho Rios - the most eco-logical way to enjoy the vistas here.

St. Kitts: From century-old state houses to modern resorts, beautiful beaches to sugar plantations St Kitts is a study in contrasts. Thankfully, this is the kind of study that's all about the fun - no books involved!

Caribbean islands, how do we love thee. Let us count the ways again and again and again.

What's your favourite Caribbean hot-spot?

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
