Have you been lucky enough to visit the Caribbean? You’ve probably seen the pictures, at least—turquoise waters, blue skies, sparkling white beaches. There’s no substitute for feeling the sand under your toes and the warm sun on your face, but we think these photos are a pretty good start.
Atlantis Kite Beach, Bonaire
Not only is Atlantis Kite Beach a hidden gem for kite surfers, it has just about the clearest water you’ll find anywhere.
Oyster Pond, St. Martin
Drive to the French side of St. Maarten/St. Martin for a spectacular scenic overlook on Oyster Pond Road.
Palm Beach, Aruba
We don’t mean to brag (much!), but the view from Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort is one of the most stunning in the Caribbean.
Bathsheba Beach, Barbados
The striking rock formations at Bathsheba Beach are the remnants of an ancient coral reef.
Arikok National Park, Aruba
We count Aruba among our favorite places, so you might have expected it would show up in our list twice. Visit Arikok National Park on the eastern side of the island to experience rugged natural beauty.
Grapetree Bay, St. Croix
You don’t need to travel far from Divi Carina Bay All-Inclusive Beach Resort to see this picturesque view—it’s right outside.
