Best Beaches of the Caribbean

By LL Editorial Staff

Having to select the Caribbeanís best beaches is like choosing a favorite offspring. You adore each and every one unconditionally. The same applies to the sandy shorelines of Anguilla, Aruba, Grenada, and many more Caribbean destinations where you discover that no two beaches are alike, which makes them all the more loveable.

Beach in Grenada

In Grenada, next to the lovely and luxe Maca Bana resort, is Magazine Beach where there is little disturbance but still plenty of action. Do as little or as much as you like, from sun worshipping to kayaking with most Sunday afternoons reserved for a bona fide beach barbecue hosted by a local eatery.

Beach in Jamaica

Jamaica has two fabulous beaches worthy of a visit. Doctorís Cave Beach, which enjoys a sheltered location in Montego Bay not far from Round Hill Hotel and Villas, is known for its azure waters and platinum sands as well as its calm surf. Near the Blue Lagoon Villas, a wondrous retreat with a collection of accommodations that sit literally on the water along the islandís north coast, is San San Beach. This narrow, but long strip of sand is protected by a coral reef that is ideal for swimming or scuba diving.

Beach in Turks and Caicos

Grace Bay in the celebrity favorite Turks and Caicos is home to the new all-suite Regent Grand resort situated on the 12-mile, rock-free Grace Bay Beach. While some may argue that this little paradise is among the islandís more popular places to play, its natural setting and generous length make it a snap to find a secluded spot.

The Dominican Republic has its share of shoreline, too, but itís Playa Punta Cana that seems to garner the most attention. This pristine beach is blanketed with soft sand and punctuated with plenty of trees. Nearby is Tortuga Bay, a luxury compound with a beachfront grill for grazing.
