10 Caribbean Islands to Visit This Spring

Maybe you’re looking for a classic beach getaway. Maybe you’re looking for an adventurous jaunt to an eco-resort. Or maybe you’re looking for a foodie holiday. Spring is one of the best times to visit the Caribbean — the crowds thin out, the prices fall a bit and the weather is still spectacular. So if you’re thinking about a tropical island escape this spring, here are 10 great places to choose from.



Martinique remains one of the Caribbean’s great “undiscovered” destinations. It’s an elegant, culturally rich island with some of the region’s best gastronomy (and, of course, 11 rhum distilleries). In short, Martinique is a place for travelers with great taste. And it’s easier to get here than ever before, thanks to flights with American Airlines (out of Miami) and a host of northeast US cities (with Norwegian). But your next trip here should be a French Caribbean take on the classic island getaway: an escape to the beautiful Relais & Chateaux Cap Est Lagoon Resort and Spa in Martinique’s beach enclave of Le Francois. For a real splurge, go for one of the hotel’s plunge pool suites (above).
