The Caribbean is famous for its vibrant festivals, picturesque towns and colourful cultures. But, most of all, this place is a popular holiday destination because of its impressive beach scene. Can’t tell the difference between Barbados and the Bahamas? Read on to find out about the best beaches in the Caribbean.

Beach 1: Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas

These salmon coloured sands get their pigment from the broken coral and shells. The three miles of Pink Sands are mostly popular among honeymooners. The beach offers sheltered swimming and you can stay in luxury resorts or seaside cottages.

Beach 2: Grand Anse Beach, Grenada

Stretching along the ocean in Grenada is the fabulously white sands of the Grand Anse beach. Chill out in the shade of sea grapes, almond and palm trees. The two-mile stretch of milky-white sands are lent a postcard-esque look from the brightly coloured boats in the bay, hotels and restaurants.

Beach 3: Shoal Bay Beach, Anguilla

Anguilla was once a secret hideaway but it has since turned into a bit of a hot spot. Shoal Bay is one of thirty three beaches on the island. Choose it for bars and restaurants, snorkelling, parasailing and scuba diving. It can get busy so it’s best to arrive for sunrise or sunset so that you arrive before/after the crowds have dispersed.

Beach 4: Crane Beach, Barbados

Home to pop star Rihanna, Barbados is a beautifully distinctive island, with fun-loving people and eccentric culture. Composed mainly of uber-soft pulverised coral, lined by palm trees and washed by gentle waves on the west side of the island – it’s your stereotypical Caribbean beach.
