An island that blends the exotic mood of the Caribbean with a hint of home (it was British for over 350 years). Here rum punch and calypso meet afternoon tea and cricket in perfect harmony, and Bridgetown’s Trafalgar Square is older than our own. With over 30 miles of beaches, 3, 000 hours of sunshine a year, welcoming ‘Bajan’ smiles, excellent shopping in the port and flying fish for lunch, Barbados is for many British visitors the quintessential Caribbean island!

Kralendijk, the lively, Dutch-controlled capital of Bonaire, is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and fantastic Caribbean climate. This colourful town is characterised by its many beaches dotted with quaint stucco houses in pastel shades of pink, green and blue. Surrounded by the protected Marine Park, the island’s waters are home to large numbers of tropical fauna, rare seabirds and sea life, including turtles, tuna, Blue Marlin and sailfish. Washington Slagbaai National Park is a great place to spot flamingos, iguanas and giant cacti, while sun-worshippers intent on pure relaxation can enjoy the gorgeous white-sand beach on the nearby uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire.In Kralendijk itself, interesting shops sell jewellery, wood and leather products hand-crafted by the locals. There are plenty of restaurants selling an enticing mixture of cuisine, from Creole dishes, such as grilled spicy fish, goat stew and cactus soup to local versions of Dutch foods, such as smoked meat and excellent cheese. The locally brewed beer is also worth trying, as is the creamy hot chocolate.

On the mountain-backed Caribbean shores of Costa Rica (the name, meaning ‘rich coast’ was bequeathed by Columbus), Puerto Limon is a gateway to Central America’s most welcoming (its been a democracy for over a century) and surprising country. Though smaller than Ireland, it boasts an amazing biodiversity. With more butterfly species than the whole of Africa, more bird species than Europe, its precious tropical rainforests harbour over half a million plant and animal species. Small wonder that about a quarter of Costa Rica is protected nature reserve or national park. From Puerto Limon shore visits offer an opportunity to journey inland to the picturesque capital of San Jose or to see more of its rich widlife and exotic scenery.

UNESCO-protected Willemstad on Curaçao has narrow-gabled, 18th century houses in cool pastel shades, juxtaposed with intense yellows and royal blues. It’s akin to a carbon copy of Amsterdam, but with the gorgeous Caribbean climate thrown in.The town has a number of intriguing museums worth visiting: the Curaçao Museum, the Maritime Museum and Kura Hulanda, which tells the history of the local slave trade. At Scharlooweg 77 is the house known as the ‘Wedding Cake’, a near perfect example of Dutch colonial architecture.Willemstad is actually divided into two sections, Otrobanda and Punda, and both boast a rich, cultural heritage. They are connected by the Queen Emma Bridge, also known as the Swinging Old Lady, a floating, pontoon bridge powered by diesel, which swings open daily to allow ships in and out of the harbour.Situated not far from the waterfront, the crowded streets of Punda are packed with smart galleries and shops, while nearby Pietermaai is alive with cool restaurants, bars and clubs. The island’s fantastic beaches are a true delight, with Santa Barbara Beach probably the pick of them all.

Location Tobago

Scarborough is a port city on the southern coast of the island of Tobago. Established in 1654 as the Dutch port of Lampsinburg, Scarborough is s a lively, bustling little town dominated by the 18th century Fort King George that overlooks the town.

Scarborough boasts some attractive Georgian buildings, such as the House of Assembly. The town has some good places to grab a bite and a neat public market, Scarborough Market, which sells fresh produce and clothing. Close by are the indigenous trees and shrubs of Scarborough Botanical Gardens.

The mountain-top Fort King George is worth a visit, and while some of the fort is in ruins, the well-preserved old guardhouse is now the excellent Tobago Historical Museum. Inside are fascinating displays on the history of the island (it has changed hands over 30 times over the years) as well as weapons, old maps, photographs and pre-Columbian artefacts. There is also a fine-arts centre within the fort.

Location Grenada

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.

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.
