Beaches, Beaches in the Caribbean:
The most beautiful beaches in the world are found on the Islands
of the Caribbean. The Caribbean beaches are non other then
spectacular. The islands relatively small land mass belies the sheer
quantity of its beachfront.
With the vast majority of the islands shaped
like slivers, one imagines gorgeous stretches of beaches separated by
the most perfunctory of inlands. And indeed the Caribbean beaches are--gorgeous,
beaches in the Caribbean are pristine and unbelievably white, with sand
so fine it feels soft to the touch. Those in search of Caribbean beaches
really special should check out Harbour Island's rose-colored sands,
off the coast of Eleuthera. The beaches of The Caribbean
are often coupled with shallow transparent water for hundreds of yards
out to sea, rising gently to sandbars before finally dropping into the
of uncluttered perfect beaches stretch out over the Caribbean, and a
vacation is not complete without a day at the beach. Hotels offer many
beach activities and water sports.
This tiny half moon shaped sandy bay is protected by high cliffs, so
the ambience is tranquil and excellent for sunbathing and snorkelling.
Access by a boat only.
Nearby, Shoal Bay, Rendezvous Bay, or Road Bay offer a few more facilities
and action. Caribbean beaches
Harbour Island, Pink Beach
This famous pink sand beach is said to be one of the world's most photographed
beaches. It's a 3-mile stretch of powder coral sand, named for its pink
colour because of flecks of red coral mixed with fine sugar-white sand.
Most of the accommodation is located on the cliff behind the beach,
and reached by water taxi from Eleuthera.
This is a totally laid-back seaside town, with pristine sandy beaches
on a long, narrow peninsula in SE Belize. It is is well worth the trip
to get there [4-5 hours from Belize City, but now daily domestic flights
are available. Caribbean beaches.
South Water Caye Caribbean Beaches
This is a place for sun-seekers who want to be part of marine nature.
In fact, Belize is the home of the world's second longest barrier reef
[180 miles from Mexico to the Sapodilla Cayes], and this tiny 12-acre
island off Dangriga is a part of it. You can experience the some of
the world's most exciting snorkeling, diving, and fishing there. Ambergris
Caye [resort] and Caye Caulker [low-key] are also excellent places.
Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda, The Baths
Palm-lined silky beaches with deep pinky-gray sands and peppermint green
water [what about the purple prose?]. The Baths is one of the most popular
spots in the British Virgin Islands, but can get crowded. Good for year-round
swimming and snorkelling, especially going left from the beach. Generally
a bit pricey. Virgin Gorda is one of the friendliest islands in the
Caribbean. Best Dec-March. Avoid Sept.
Carriacou, Anse la Roche Caribbean Beaches
This is a must-do beach, a perfect postcard of white sand with a superb
view of Union Island across the water. About 45 minute walk from Bogles
but it's quite easy to get lost and it might be better to take a water
taxi. There are no facilities and very few people, so take food and
drink. Grand Anse Beach on the main island is also known to be one of
the finest of clichéd tropical beaches in the Caribbean.
