Barbados’s capital Bridgetown makes a wonderful, vibrant place in which to start a circular Caribbean escape. We first set a course for sleepier St Barts, via a day at sea. Having slipped into the gorgeous port capital of Gustavia – known for super-yachts, stylish boutiques and chichi restaurants serving Gallic cuisine – you’ll discover why this volcanic French enclave ranks among the region’s A-list destinations. Wild beaches and reefs lie close by. 

South Friar’s Bay, on St Kitts’ sheltered southwestern coast, is our next port of call. It’s dotted with laidback barefoot bars and the upmarket Carambola Beach resort, where we’ll dock, with languid lunches and lazy swims very much the order of the day. Our itinerary then takes in the easy-breezy island of Antigua and its southern harbour town Falmouth. Beach-hopping catamaran trips and mangrove-paddling kayak adventures are popular here, as are rum-tinged food tours.

A further day at sea sees us arrive beside Anse Mitan’s shallow-watered beach in another French department, Martinique, with a chance to hike through rainforest before wending our way back to Bridgetown. If you didn’t do so the first time, try to visit the world’s oldest rum distillery, Mount Gay, and stroll around the World Heritage-listed old town.
