Funchal, the capital of Portugal’s Madeiran archipelago, has a timeless old-world charm. Enhanced by a subtropical climate that fills this ‘floating garden’ with the year-round colours and perfumes of flowers and fruit, Funchal was a favourite of Sir Winston Churchill. His praise of the city has ensured British visitors always receive a warm welcome from locals.

Backed by rolling hills, the town is famous for its harbour, the 17th century São Tiago Fortress (now the Contemporary Art Museum) and world renowned Madeiran wine cellars. Funchal’s parks and gardens are a delight, and a hike through the Laurel Forest nearby is highly recommended. The ancient Funchal Cathedral mixes Gothic and Romanesque architecture, and is noted for its impressive carved wooden ceiling.

Location Antigua
In
Out

Whatever rugged Antigua may lack in tropical scenery the island more than makes up for with what are some of the best watersports conditions found anywhere in the Carribbean, and 365 beaches (‘one for each day of the year’ say the Antiguans) to enjoys! For many, too, the great bay of stunning English Harbour and historic Nelson’s Dockyard (Britain’s West Indies naval base now restored to its 18th century prime) will prove a magnet.

Date 27/11/2023
Location Martinique
In
Out

Martinique’s lively, unmistakably French capital is, like the island itself, a flamboyant fusion of Gallic sophistication and Creole exuberance. It was, after all, the birthplace of the Empress Josephine! Its many bistros, restaurants and boutiques will provide temptations in plenty, while to visit St. Pierre, engulfed a century ago by volcanic Mont Pelée, is to recall an epic moment of island history.

Location Barbados
In
Out

The independent British Commonwealth nation of Barbados is a haven of relaxation. In addition to pristine powdery sand and gorgeous turquoise bays, Barbados has a UNESCO-listed World Heritage capital, a stunning interior dotted with botanical gardens, 70 miles of wild, east coast surf and a spectacular nightlife.

Inhabited by proud, welcoming locals, Barbados truly is a paradise island. Its bustling capital, Bridgetown, has a fine natural harbour, and colonial buildings and busy markets that provide a glimpse into the laidback lives of the Barbadians. The Caribbean island has an endearing blend of British and West Indian cultures, and its balmy, tropical climate makes it a favourite with travellers drawn to its relaxed sophistication.

A cruise to Barbados opens up a world of delicate natural coral reefs and warm, inviting seas. Other extraordinary finds around the island include breath-taking cave formations and 17th century plantation houses. Local traditions include afternoon tea and cricket, the national sport.

Date 29/11/2023
Location Grenada
In
Out

Grenada is the ‘Spice Island’ of cinnamon, nutmeg, mace and vanilla plantations, dense with lush rainforests, and was the setting for the film Island in the Sun. St George’s must surely be the Caribbean’s prettiest capital, almost Mediterranean-looking with its picturesque buildings (some dating from the 18th century), steep cobbled streets and stepped alleys rising as if part of a terraced amphitheatre set amid the wooded hill slopes that surround the harbour. Lovely Grand Anse beach – within easy reach – is not to be missed.

Date 30/11/2023
Location Bequia
In
Out

Home to fewer than 6000 people, the tiny island of Bequia is a quiet, sun kissed paradise with beautiful sandy beaches, lush green hills, small traditional villages and barely any traffic to contend with.

A homely island with friendly locals, tourists are always warmly welcomed to Bequia, so whether you spend your time by the beach soaking up the sun or in town sipping cocktails, you are sure to find that perfect solitude.

Location Roseau
In
Out

Discovered by Columbus on a Sunday (hence its name), Dominica was once inhabited by fierce Carib Indians and is still home to 3,000 of their descendants. Arriving at Roseau you’ll definitely find the welcome friendlier today! And to travel from the capital into the island’s exotic tropical interior – which soars to 4,700 feet – is to discover a wonderful environment of dense (and now protected) rainforest, deep lakes, glittering waterfalls and fast-flowing rivers quite unlike any of its neighbours.

Date 03/12/2023
Location St Kitts
In
Out

Adjust to the easygoing pace of St Kitts’ dignified little capital, then check out its imposing cathedral before lingering over the purchase of attractive batiks. Ascending past the lush sugar-cane fields to take in the sweeping views from the 17th century Brimstone Hill Fortress – the ‘Gibraltar of the West Indies’ whose ramparts recall Anglo-French battles fought here long ago.

Date 04/12/2023
Location St Maarten
In
Out

The world’s smallest island shared between two nations – its 16 miles square (and more developed) southern part is Dutch and the northern, French – hilly St Maarten in the Windwards is a dual personality setting of absorbing contrasts. Philipsburg, built on a sand bar, is the old capital and still preserves some attractive colonial architecture, though the island’s enticing beaches, excellent restaurants, and shops stocked with duty-free bargains will probably detain you longer!

Since their discovery in the early 15th century, the Portuguese Azores have played an important part in oceanic navigation. They were a logistical point for the discovery of new worlds; a port of call for ships engaged in trade between Europe, America and India; and a place to lay anchor for the galleons bringing the wealth of the Americas back to the old world.
