Icons of the Caribbean
Discover the Caribbean favourites of Barbados, Antigua and Saint Lucia, where exquisite beaches, national parks and historical treasures await.
Soak up the buzz of Barbados’s colourful capital, Bridgetown. Explore its art galleries, museums and foodie culture, before setting sail to the millionaires’ mecca of St Barts.
Arrive on satin sands, where brilliant blue waters lap rugged green hills. This little island fuses French cool with Caribbean beauty. It’s all about laid-back luxury on St Barts. There are 16 beaches on the island, so take your pick. You could spend your day on Saint-Jean beach, a top spot for swimming, people-watching and sipping cocktails at toes-in-the-sand bars, or take the 30-minute hike to historic Colombier.
Our next stop is St Kitts. A must on this mountainous island is Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, a 17th Century citadel and UNESCO World Heritage Site with an 18-mile scenic railway via old sugar plantations. Chill out this afternoon beneath a thatched umbrella on South Friars Beach, or explore the warm waters on a paddleboard.
In Antigua, it’s possible to go exploring by off-road buggy or inflatable dinghy, while history fans can visit crumbling plantations or the restored 18th-Century Nelson’s Dockyard. Alternatively, spend decadent days on some of the Caribbean’s best beaches where local shack cafes sizzle fresh lobster.

In Saint Lucia, you may get no further than Rodney Bay’s Reduit Beach, a mile of soft golden sand. But if you do venture across the island, head for the dramatic and iconic Twin Pitons or visit a spectacular drive-in volcano at Sulphur Springs.
