If you’re searching for an idyllic destination that offers lots to see and do, then Anguilla is the island for you. Its pristine and peaceful white beaches (some accessible only by boat) and warm aquamarine waters are some of the most inviting in the Caribbean. The good life extends to its many open-air restaurants and an array of water sports. Maybe you’d prefer just “liming,” a term locals use that means “hang out and relax with friends.” Anguilla, which is just 35 square miles, has a hot music scene and an array of beautiful resorts for any budget. Just north of St. Martin, and an easy day trip, the island often attracts the rich and famous but always maintains its authentic local charm.

Each of the British Virgin Islands are unique, appealing, and can suit any vacation wish.

Anegada is the only coral island in the chain, and Virgin Gorda is home to yacht clubs and exclusive resorts. With 60 islands to drop anchor on, the BVI is a wonderful destination for sailors. There is also a low-key vibe almost anywhere you go, and even though there’s an array of luxurious resorts to be found, the emphasis is on relaxation and easy fun.

Climate The BVI has a subtropical climate, moderated by trade winds. Temperatures in summer average from 79-88°F and between 72-82°F in winter. Average annual rainfall is 45”. Marriage Requirements Couples must apply for a license at the Attorney General’s office in Tortola and pay a $110.00 USD mandatory fee.

waters, and even a rainforest. Plus, its small size means you can experience absolutely everything this lovely island has to offer. First, the beaches are simply beautiful. Grand Anse is a popular spot with both tourists and locals, but there are also plenty of quiet romantic spots if you need a bit more seclusion. La Sagesse, Bathway, and Levera Beach are great for undisturbed R&R. And whether it’s fine dining or a casual bistro lunch, there dozens of great restaurants to enjoy a delicious meal with a romantic view of the sea.

Climate Grenada has a tropical climate cooled by northeast trade winds. The average annual temperature is 80ºF. Average annual rainfall ranges from 40” in the southwest to 150” in the mountains.

ST. LUCIA: SIGHTSEEING

Piton Sunset Cruise

Soufriere Volcano Jeep Safari

Best of St. Lucia

Half-Day / Island Routes Gaze at gorgeous views of Saint Lucia as you make your way to the majestic Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon arrival, jump into the blue waters at the base of the volcanic peaks for an unforgettable swim and snorkel. Then cruise back up the coast as the sun lights up the sky with orange, amber, and gold hues. You may even see the elusive “green flash” sunset phenomena. Pass through Marigot Bay and dance to some island rhythms while you enjoy drinks and delicious appetizers.

6 Hours / Island Routes This scenic journey takes you through St. Lucia’s banana plantations, fishing villages, and rainforest. Your guides will share the history of significant sites along the way to Sourfriere, home to the majestic Pitons. Stop at Morne Coubaril, where you’ll learn about 18th century plantation life. Continue to Diamond Waterfall and Sulphur Springs, where you can immerse in the rich mineral water. Enjoy a delicious lunch prepared with fresh local ingredients.

4 Hours Join a hands-on cultural exploration and visit the village of Fond Assau, where locals teach the old traditions and guests collect honey from beehives, catch crayfish, and learn how to make bread. Saint Lucian folk music accompanies an authentic wood sawing demonstration – and, of course, dancing! Next, visit Castries to learn about its rich history, then become an eco-venturer at Our Planet, where jaw-dropping technology promotes environmental conservation.

Travel two miles out to the 3,000-foot-deep ledge and follow this route down the west coast to Soufriere, where the most spectacular sightings have occurred – a once-in-a-lifetime experience. On the trek back, motor to breathtaking Marigot Bay for a photo op before returning to the cove.

Half-Day / Island Routes Towering nearly 3,000 feet above sea level, the majestic peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton dominate the western coast of St Lucia. The lush green slopes of these pyramid-shaped icons rise from the sapphire waters of the Caribbean, filling the adventurous traveler with wanderlust. The marvelous panoramic views at the top are an experience well worth the hike. Afterwards, savor a sumptuous lunch of local delicacies and a refreshing swim in the Caribbean Sea.
