A cruise to the Caribbean is arguably the best way to explore the dusting of islands that lie to the south of Florida. The reason is simple. While they are collectively known for their sandy beaches and enviable weather, each island has its own distinct character, so to visit and contrast several on one holiday is a rewarding experience.
Snorkelling clear waters, basking on powder-soft sands and visiting lush waterfalls are often what attracts visitors, although certain experiences feel extra special. Like a helicopter ride around St Lucia’s Pitons. A visit to historic Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua. A stroll past Willemstad’s colourful Dutch inspired gabled houses. Even feeding stingrays in the shallows of Grand Cayman.
