Yes, the world’s gone selfie-crazy. So why even bother to fight it? Grab your selfie stick and shutter remote and start snapping at these iconic Caribbean spots.
The Pitons, St. Lucia
The journey of 2,619 feet up Gros Piton begins with a single step. And ends with a well-earned selfie at the summit.
Rick’s Café, Jamaica
If you’re daring enough to jump 30 feet into the water from the cliff’s edge at this iconic Negril sunset spot, you should memorialize the moment on camera, no?
Brimstone Hill Fortress, St Kitts
Views of Nevis, Montserrat, Saba and St. Barts make for a classic Caribbean photo opp at this 17th-century Kittitian bastion. And besides, who can resist straddling a colonial-era cannon?
Buck Island, USVI
Just a 30-minute boat ride from St. Croix, idyllic uninhabited Buck Island is the place to live out all your Crusoe-esque fantasies – and since there’s 4G cell service you can upload that envy-inducing selfie right away.
Deep Water Cay, Bahamas
The airstrip at this private-island resort is fringed with lush vegetation and mounds of conch shells. Its .80 mile of tarmac also makes the perfect setting for the ultimate airport selfie – preferably at sunrise before the first jets arrive.
Hell, Grand Cayman
Are you going to be able to resist taking a selfie at this West Bay limestone formation turned tourist trap? Hell, no!
El Morro, Puerto Rico
Immortalize yourself on Instagram in one of the iconic sentry boxes at this waterfront fort in Old San Juan.
I Love Aruba sign, Aruba
Because they didn’t put this gigantic sign in the middle of downtown for nothing!
There are few scenes more synonymous with this Dutch city than the multicolored buildings that line the waterfront in Punda. For the best shot, snap your selfie from the Queen Emma floating bridge.
South Hill, Anguilla
No trip to Anguilla is complete without a roadside photo opp in South Hill, where the stunning view of the curvaceous bay at Sandy Ground below is the stuff of Caribbean fantasies – and my own holiday card!
