It’s a question we get asked very often. “Which Caribbean island has the best beaches?” Well, it’s a bit more complicated than that. That’s because it’s hard to go to any island in the Caribbean and not find a world-class beach. But if you’re looking for a pure beach trip, some islands really are in a class by themselves. These are the islands with multitudes of great beaches, with one marvelous beach after another — the ones where the sand is just right, where the beaches are easy to get to and easy on the eyes, where there are vibrant beach bars and beautiful beach hotels to match. These are the Caribbean’s best beach destinations.

Anguilla

When it comes to Caribbean beach destinations, Anguilla is right at the top. With 33 superb beaches on a tiny, easy to navigate island, it’s the best bet for a pure beach getaway. Of course, choosing which beach is best is rather difficult, from Rendezvous Bay to Maundays Bay to Shoal Bay, among others — but figuring it out is the best part of the trip.
