The Best Of St. Barth: A Guide To The Caribbean���s Playground For The Rich & Famous

Most holidaymakers plump for a hotel, and there are properties to suit all tastes. For all-inclusive family resort hotels the Dominican Republic and Jamaica are the top choices, while Antigua and Barbados’s Platinum Coast specialise in white-gloved five-star hospitality. St Lucia’s southwestern coast is home to a number of honeymoon favourites — especially anywhere with a view of the Pitons — as is Anguilla’s West End. For the castaway experience, albeit in comfort, try the North and Middle Caicos or St Vincent, and if you seek a beach with French chic, choose Saint Barthélemy (usually shortened to St Barths) or Guadeloupe. Tobago and Dominica are good for eco-lodges, Nevis is the best at antique-filled plantation houses, and Cuba’s casas particulares offer guests utterly unique homestay experiences. The alternative is a villa, with or without a butler, driver and private chef. St Barths leads the region in choice, Jamaica’s Ocho Rios is top for luxury, and Barbados has a villa or a house for every budget.

Wherever you choose, remember that the Atlantic-facing eastern shores of the Lesser Antilles — that’s the arc of islands from the British Virgin Islands in the north to Trinidad and Tobago in the south — have significantly rougher seas than their sunset sides.
