Experience the Beauty of the Caribbean Beaches

Aug 17, 2007
Caribbean islands offer you Caribbean beaches that are second to none. The beaches here are sure to take your breath away. The beaches boast of white warm sand and clear pristine water. You can enjoy shade of coconut palms on some beaches while on others you can have a look at picturesque cliffs. So, there is no dearth of things to do on Caribbean beaches, be it sunbathing, or clicking the panoramic sites here or even collecting shells and swimming in the waters.

Caribbean beaches are essentially a delightful experience for anyone but before you take the plunge there are a few things you can try to remember.

It is true that swimming is very safe in Caribbean beaches but you should be careful of rip currents which are also known as undertow. It is always advisable not to swim alone because most of the Caribbean beaches don't have lifeguards.

If you are thinking of taking sunbath, always apply sunscreen and drink a lot of fluids. You would find that most of the Caribbean beaches have public beach that could be accessed by anyone but there are beaches which are exclusive for resort guests only. And yes, when it comes to resorts, you can not always trust brochure pictures. It is seen that with fall in prices, the facilities associated with resort beaches also deteriorate. And yes, one more point. There are some places where no one would care if you decide to bathe topless but at other Caribbean beaches, it won't be allowed.

Tour to Caribbean is all about exploration and finding your own special places. The number of Caribbean beaches is many but we are going to touch a few important ones.

ARUBA

Aruba is certainly one of the most popular Caribbean beaches. What is more it has consistently been named as one of the best beaches in the world. So, if you want to swim in its pristine waters or go on sailing to un-chartered territories or want to enjoy the myriads avenues to get fun here, you can't find a better place than Aruba. Its Palm Beach is considered one of the most popular places not just in Aruba but also in the whole of Caribbean and as such it remains very much crowded throughout the winters.

ANTIGUA

If you ask any locals here, you would be told that there is at least one Caribbean beach for you for every day of the year. And it is certainly not exaggeration. Half Moon Bay getting its name from crescent shape of moon and Dickenson Bay are the two more popular beaches. The former is a part of national park and as such there is no lack of activities here including wind surfing and snorkeling. You can easily get equipments for water sports on rent.

BAHAMAS

It is really a jewel amongst the Caribbean islands. It is one of the major tourist destinations here. This island caters to a variety of tastes right from shops, to restaurants to water sports to a casino for gambling enthusiasts. Paradise Island (Nassau) is a major center here. If you need a little bit privacy and seclusion visit Arawank Cay and Adelaide Village in Nassau. There are a number of shacks and huts here.

Nude beaches won't be that much of problem here. After all we are talking about thousands of Caribbean beaches here. But always follow local customs and do look out for any family beaches near to you.
