They’re party beaches. They’re cool beaches. They’re sexy beaches. 

Some beaches just have that certain extra level of hip, whether it’s the nightlife, the food, the lounging or the crowd. It all adds up to make a stretch of sand an “in” destination.

The Caribbean’s hippest beaches have the energy, the people and the positioning, and they’re scattered across the region, from the Bahamas to the southern Caribbean, from St Martin to Aruba.

Here are our picks for the hippest beaches right now in the Caribbean.

Le Carbet

Le Carbet, Martinique Home to the island’s destination beach bar, this village near Saint Pierre has become the hippest place on the island, with a growing portfolio of beach shacks and gourmet beach bars, and an anything-goes, toes in the sand vibe that makes it oh so hard to leave. It’s the new destination beach in the Caribbean.
