The-Dunn's-River-Falls-and-Park-in-Jamaica

If you’re planning a trip to some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, take a detour in order to visit the world-famous Dunn's River Falls & Park. As one of Jamaica’s top tourist attractions, this incredible natural wonder can get very busy, but it is still well-worth a visit.

Climbing up the falls — 180 metres of vast limestone tiers — is an elating experience. The water cascades down through a variety of refreshing pools and, though the current can be strong is some places, the ascent is easily manageable for most. Whether you’re on a Jamaican luxury yacht charter or visiting this amazing country on a private superyacht, the Dunn's River Falls aren’t to be missed.

The-Waitukubuli-National-Trail-should-be-on-your-Caribbean-bucket-list

If you are looking for a challenge during your Caribbean superyacht vacation then hiking the 115 miles of the Waitukubuli National Trail in Dominica is bound to be an unforgettable experience. The trail is split into 14 different sections so if you are feeling a little less adventurous then you can choose to tackle as much or as little as you want.

Known as the “Nature Island” the coast-to-coast route takes in some of Dominica’s most scenic landscapes including the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Storm Erika devastated parts of Dominica in 2015 but the island is now happy to welcome back visiting superyachts. If you want to hike the trail guests are required to purchase either a one day or 15 day pass. No matter how much of the route you choose to tackle it is guaranteed to be a breath taking Caribbean experience.

Pig beach, Bahamas

The Caribbean is famous for its incredible sea life, boasting some of the world’s best dives, but an uninhabited island of Big Major's Spot in Exuma island chain, The Bahamas offers you the chance to swim with a different kind of creature — pigs.

The brown and pink wild pigs live freely on the white sandy beach, which has been nicknamed by locals as “pig beach”, and who regularly take to the water for a cooling dip.

There are various rumours as to how the pigs came to live on the island. Some people claim they swam to shore from a shipwreck, while others believe they were dropped off by sailors who intended to come back and cook them.

These days locals and tourists feed the pigs and swimming with them is definitely an experience to tick off your Caribbean bucket list. However, be warned, friendly as they may be they are prepared to swim after you for food!

The pigs have become a popular tourist attraction so it is worth trying to get there early in the morning. You can anchor the night before at nearby Staniel Cay Yacht Club, which can accommodate yachts up to 56 metres and has a great party atmosphere.
