The Caribbean is a popular spot for holiday makers who are craving sun, sea, and stunning scenery. Thankfully there are some spots in this beautiful part of the world that remain somewhat untouched by the tourist crowds and offer a unique Caribbean sailing experience

1. Nevis

The picturesque island of Nevis often gets overlooked by Caribbean holiday goers due to it’s small size (only taking up 36 square miles) and the fact that it is only accessible by boat. However, this makes it the perfect unspoilt destination to explore as part of a sailing trip! In a day spent on Nevis, you could hike around a dormant volcano, explore some 17th century plantation sugar mills, and visit the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton – the U.S. Founding Father whose life story has been turned into hit Broadway show, Hamilton.

 

2. Cancun Underwater Museum

With more than 470 lifesize statues submerged off of the coast of Mexico, the Cancun Underwater Museum is like nothing else you have ever seen. This man-made wonder is the perfect spot for exploring both the unique wildlife, and the captivating artworks that live beneath the surface. Swimming through the turquoise waters that surround the underwater museum is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something a bit different in the Caribbean and leave with some amazing stories to tell.

 

3. Curaçao

If you’re visiting the Caribbean for stunning coastlines and idyllic swimming spots, then Curaçao is the place for you! With no less than 35 beaches and some of the most untouched coral reefs in the world, this island offers amazing snorkelling, swimming, and sunning on its beaches.

 

4. Pink Sand Beaches in the Bahamas

For a unique Caribbean beach experience head to the Bahamas and check out the breathtaking pink sand beaches that have been created thanks to a microscopic organism called foraminifera! This organism’s reddish-pink shell mixed with crushed coral and shells makes a coastline view that is like nowhere else in the world.
