favourite Caribbean destinations

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

While St Barts has a reputation for celebrities, no island is more associated with the British royal family than Mustique. Princess Margaret put the tiny island on the map in the 1960s and the Queen and Prince Philip have also made several visits to the island.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have now taken to holidaying on the tiny island.

For their “babymoon” before the birth of Prince George they rented a luxury house on the island. The couple have been spotted on boats during their vacations and are thought to have enjoyed some of the Caribbean’s best scuba dives.

Staniel Cay, Bahamas

LeBron James

NBA star LeBron James was joined by his former Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade for a luxury yacht charter in the Bahamas earlier this summer.

Le Bron James vacationed on board Amarula Sun, one of the best charter yachts with exciting water toys, and was spotted enjoying a banana boat ride near Staniel Cay.

The group spent several days anchored off Staniel Cay and made the trip across to Big Major's Spot to swim with the pigs — an activity on many people’s Caribbean bucket list.

Oprah Winfrey has in the past enjoyed a luxury yacht charter in the Mediterranean during the summer, but for her winter sun she has a permanent base in Antigua. The stunning waterside residence near Galley Bay offers beautiful views out onto the ocean. Her famous neighbours on the island include Eric Clapton and owner of superyacht Main Giorgio Armani.
