Over the course of my life I have been fortunate enough to visit so many different Caribbean islands and I thought it would be cruel if I didn’t share some of my favorites. So I’m going to list my top 5 and share why I love those incredible spots.
5 – Tortola/Puerto Rico
This is a tie because I can’t decide which one I loved more! Tortola was so great, but I also loved Puerto Rico. You can’t go wrong with either one.
Bonaire is incredibly beautiful and has AMAZING snorkeling and scuba diving. My only problem was the lack of sandy beaches. After I got over this I enjoyed exploring the beaches and the cacti that cover the island.
3 – St. Thomas
I might be a little biased because I’ve been to St. Thomas so many times, but this island has beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and shopping! I always have a great time here.
2 – St. Kitts
This entire island is beautiful. There are monkeys everywhere and there is so much to see. My family and I were able to explore Brimstone Hill Fortress, which had stunning views.
1 – St. John
By far my favorite beaches. Each time I go there is another secluded beach we discover. My family usually rents a boat and a jeep to drive around the island and explore.
Whether you visit any of these places or go somewhere else, I highly recommend getting out of your comfort zone and leaving the hotel bubble. My family and I usually take these trips together, although I have been to St. Thomas quite a few times without them. The best way to truly experience a new place is to try new things and always have fun! All of these islands are so special to me and if I had time I would flood you with more details.
