Our top Caribbean island hopping recommendations
St Kitts / Nevis
The contrasting landscapes of twin island nation St. Kitts and Nevis make for a trip with so much variety and are easily linked together with just a short ferry ride. With a first stop in St. Kitts, there will be lots to see and do with island sightseeing, a local train ride, and adventures exploring the rainforest and the Unesco site of historic Brimstone Fort. Next is the short but very scenic ferry ride to Nevis with its idyllic beaches and the finest of hotels where you will find the perfect spot to relax and get into the holiday mood. This Caribbean gem is famed for its beautiful scenery, friendly locals and rich history.
St Lucia / Grenada
St Lucia and Grenada make for an ideal Caribbean island combination with only a short distance between these two very different islands. Enjoy a first week in St Lucia with a trip to the Unesco site of the Pitons, the famous drive-in volcano, as well of course some time relaxing on the fabulous beaches of Rodney Bay. Then continue on with a short flight to Grenada, the 'Spice Island' where you'll enjoy discovering the many flavours of spices in the local plantations as well as the most delicious local chocolate. A great range of hotels on Grenada will provide a perfect base for your island adventures.
Antigua / Tobago
These two idyllic Caribbean islands are only an hour’s flight apart and offer one of the most interesting island twin centre holidays in the Caribbean. The 365 beaches of Antigua mean that you’ll never be more than a few minutes from perfect white sand, while the hotels on the island are second to none offering a choice of upmarket, all-inclusive properties to more modest family style hotels. Tobago then awaits with its laid-back Caribbean vibe, fantastic snorkeling opportunities in the crystal clear waters off the coast, and a lively local scene with ‘wining & liming’ under the stars to the sounds of the local steel bands.
Barbados & Palm Island (St. Vincent & the Grenadines)
Barbados has long been a firm favourite amongst UK holidaymakers who return year after year to this white sand paradise to enjoy the many beautiful resorts, colourful local events, and delicious Caribbean food. After exploring the island, learning about its history and meeting the locals, many clients opt for a change of scene by taking the short flight onwards to the idyllic private Palm Island in the Grenadines where another world awaits. The pace of life is slow here with the only decisions to make is what to choose to eat or drink, or which of the many activities to go for that day. Palm Island is a Robinson Crusoe style holiday on secluded 135 grounds, but still not missing out on the comforts and facilities of a beautiful resort.
The Bahamas & Turks & Caicos
With over 7000 islands to choose from amongst these neigbouring island chains, this holiday is the ultimate island-hopping adventure. Start with flying into one of the gateway islands of Nassau or Providenciales and then start exploring at your own pace. From your base on the main island many day trips by boat or plane are available to a myriad of local islands, some uninhabited, to experience unspoiled white sand beaches, colourful local fishing villages and even swimming pigs ! Each island has its own unique personality and the larger ones host beautiful resorts, duty free shopping and magnificent golf courses. Be sure to experience the best of the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos by staying at many of the different contrasting islands.
