Aruba – One Happy Island by Natalie Huggett

By |2018-07-09T19:44:52+00:00July 9th, 2018|Caribbean|

Just 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela in the Caribbean sea are the Dutch Antilles, and its 3 most westerly islands are the ABC islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Aruba’s location outside the hurricane belt makes it the perfect place for year-round sunshine – and that’s why we call it One Happy Island! [...]

The Cayman Islands, by Katy Hallmark (age 14)

By |2018-05-23T13:12:24+00:00May 23rd, 2018|Caribbean|

Some places make you want to jump for joy! Some places make you want to sing! And some places just bring out the poet in you. A place that is beautiful A place that is calm A place where the stingrays Do you no harm. A place that is hot Yet relaxing, so pretty A tiny, little island – Not [...]

A Touch of Barbadian Luxury by Gabriele Scholes

By |2017-06-12T14:24:41+00:00December 17th, 2015|Caribbean|

Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick, convenient if you’re in the South, and a great start in the Virgin Clubhouse Lounge! Spacious and quiet, lots of seating and a treatment area for a facial or a manicure before your flight, a space for children and a business corner if you need to work! The food is lovely and all made [...]

Guadeloupe Islands – The French West Indies

By |2017-06-12T14:24:42+00:00August 4th, 2015|Caribbean|

  Guadeloupe!! What springs to mind? I imagined small islands, back to nature, remote villages and ‘the real Caribbean’ with a touch of French flair. How wrong I was! “Touch” of French, not at all! I was in France! The official language is French, the currency is the Euro and it is a French overseas territory. I flew with Air [...]

A Caribbean First by Chris and Sue Webb

This was our first visit to the Caribbean and we stayed at the Secrets Royal Beach Hotel in the Dominican Republic, for ten nights. The photos are of the hotel’s beach which as you can see is lovely white sand, and very few people and the other is a view from our hotel balcony which had a wonderful [...]

Liming on the Strip in St Kitts

By |2017-06-12T14:24:54+00:00June 12th, 2013|Caribbean|

This little island of St Kitts, is the classic picture postcard of what you'd expect to find in the Caribbean! The "Kittician" folk welcomed and waved, smiled and said hello whenever, and wherever we travelled, exploring their lovely island! The capital Basseterre, is a small but busy city, and lively too! Like many other Caribbean islands there is [...]

Grenada – the Spice of the Caribbean

By |2017-06-12T14:24:54+00:00June 12th, 2013|Caribbean|

I was delighted to be going to Grenada, famously known as the Island of Spice, with a band of fellow travel agents, guests of Grenada Tourism. Just nine hours after leaving Gatwick on a cold, wet November morning we arrived in the warmth and sunshine of the beautiful island. Located on the southern-most tip of the Windward Islands, Grenada [...]

The Body Holiday – Le Sport, St Lucia

By |2017-06-12T14:24:54+00:00June 12th, 2013|Caribbean|

Returning to the same place for a holiday can sometimes prove to be a mistake. It often doesn't quite measure up to the fist visit. This was certainly not the case for us when we went to embark on our second cruise on the Star Clipper's magnificent Royal Clipper, the 42-sail square rigged clipper ship that cruises the Caribbean [...]
