With 28 island countries and more than 7,000 actual islands, choosing where to visit can be a challenge. Here is a guide to which Caribbean island suits you.
1. Barbados – The best all-rounder Caribbean Island
Barbados is loved by everyone for a reason: it can please even the pickiest of holiday-goers. Whatever your budget, and whether you are interested in sunning yourself, playing golf, hosting your wedding or going scuba diving, you can do it here.
It's one of the more laid-back islands thanks to the famous friendliness of the Barbadians, and they're always keen to share their culture with visitors, including their great food that combines European, African and East Indian influences for a unique mix.
The island itself is beautiful and boasts acres of pretty tropical flowers and trees as well as coral beaches and clear waters. Those interested in the history of the island should visit Sunbury Great House for an example of the large plantations that used to dominate the island, while families will enjoy submarine tours that take you to shipwrecks, mini golf, wildlife reserves and underground caves.
