It is definitely not difficult to find a gorgeous beach in the Caribbean, but, with so many to choose from, it can make planning a Caribbean vacation slightly challenging. From secluded stretches of pristine white sand with nobody else in sight, to large, vibrant beaches that are ideal for people watching, OROGOLD brings you some of the best Caribbean beaches.
Plage de la Perle, Guadeloupe
Guadeloupe consists of two islands, Grande-Terre, which is full of white sand beaches and busy resorts, and Basse-Terre, which is much less populated since it is so mountainous. However, in the commune of Deshaies on Basse-Terre, you will find the Plage de la Perle, an almost perfect arc of soft, golden sand. A laid back and intimate beach, Plage de la Perle almost feels like an isolated island with its uprooted palm trees and washed up driftwood, however, there are a couple of beach bars serving delicious cocktails to bring you, almost, back to reality. Although it is favored by locals on the weekends, it never gets too crowded, especially when compared to Plage de Grand Anse, a more popular beach nearby.
Varadero Beach, Cuba
A 13-mile long peninsula of powdery white sand makes Varadero Beach the most popular beach destination in Cuba. Although there may be dozens of beachfront hotels dotted along the beach, it is so large that even when the hotels are full, there is still plenty of space to spread out on the sand. The highlight of Varadero Beach is the huge variety of water sport options, and since there are so many hotels and resorts that offer them, prices are quite competitive.
Pigeon Point, Tobago
This stunning beach is within walking distance from the airport, ideal for those who can’t wait to get into the water. This beach appeals to just about everybody, from couples watching the romantic electric sunsets, to families sharing lunch under the thatched huts, to friends drinking cold beers at the beach bar, to outdoor enthusiasts paddle boarding in the bay. Whether you are looking to get active in the water, or relax on the sand, Pigeon Point can offer it all.
Pink Sands, Harbor Island, The Bahamas
Frequently referred to as one of the best beaches in the world, Pink Sands biggest attraction is the way in which the beach turns a salmon color when the sun begins to set. The water is crystal clear and absolutely ideal for snorkeling, especially when you take into account that the waters are protected from the harsh Atlantic sea by a large coral reef. It is not too difficult to organize a boat to take you to Harbor Island, but OROGOLD only recommends that you visit if you are looking to escape from the crowds, as it is rather isolated.
From pink colored sand on a secluded island in the Bahamas, to the most popular beach in Cuba, these are some of OROGOLD’s favorite Caribbean beaches. For those of you who are planning to visit, OROGOLD recommends that you check their facilities in advance, so that you know what food and activities you need to bring with you.
