The Caribbean's Best Beaches

It’s no secret that the Caribbean is home to some of the best and most beautiful beaches in the world. Warm turquoise waters lap against pristine white sands that seem to stretch on endlessly, creating the perfect backdrop for a blissed out getaway.

With each Sandals resort nestled upon a truly stunning beach, sand and sun worshippers will be well served by any of our luxury-included resorts.

Read our list of the best beaches in the Caribbean, as well as where is best to stay so that you can make the most of every inch of the stunning white sands on every day of your holiday.

Where: Seven Mile Beach - Negril, Jamaica

Why: When you’re looking for the best beach in Jamaica you really do have plenty to choose from. Jamaica boasts an abundance of immaculate beaches, including the picturesque Seven Mile Beach in Negril, which has many times been voted best beach in the world.

While technically the beach is not quite seven miles long, with white sands that stretch as far as the eye can see, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was. The water is shallow and calm on Seven Mile Beach, so it’s also a great place to take a dip if you want to cool off from the beautiful sunshine. It’s also home to many scuba diving and watersports providers, so you can enjoy the ocean just as much as the shores.

Stay: Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa

Where: Dickenson Bay - St Johns, Antigua

Why: Countless coves can be found scattered across Antigua’s coastline, and one of the most beautiful has to be Dickenson Bay. Antigua’s most protected beach, Dickenson Bay boasts soft white sands and tranquil waters - perfect for taking a dip in.

While Dickenson Bay is a very popular beach, you won’t often find it too crowded. Which makes it a great place to take a romantic stroll with your partner, or to relax and enjoy the white sands.

Stay: Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa

Where: Pigeon Island Beach - Gros Islet, Saint Lucia

Why: The perfect white sand beach in the Caribbean for beach days, our favourite beach in Saint Lucia has to be the stunning Pigeon Island Beach. With its powdery white sands, turquoise waters and the lush green mountains of Saint Lucia rising up in the distant horizon.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by to get drinks and snacks for your day spent at this beautiful beach. If you want to explore a little further there is also plenty of history nearby on Pigeon Island.

Stay: Sandals Grande St Lucian Spa & Beach Resort

Where: Cable Beach - Nassau, Bahamas

Why: Boasting 700 islands, as you might expect the Bahamas is full of plenty of beautiful beaches. We love the idyllic Cable Beach where the sand is soft, the water warm, and offshore islands boast even more secluded beaches just waiting to be discovered.

Cable Beach is also a great destination for watersports enthusiasts, with plenty of opportunities for various water sports, if you want to get off the beach and in to (or on to!) the water.

Stay: Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa & Resort

Where: Pink Gin Beach - St Georges, Grenada

Why: Home to both white and black sand beaches, Grenada’s volcanic origins ensure you’ll be treated to some awe-inspiring scenery and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. One of our favourite beaches here is the private and untouched Pink Gin Beach, which is delightfully peaceful and crowd free for those who just want to relax.

Stay: Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa

Where: Maxwell Beach - St Lawrence Gap, Barbados

Why: A jewel of natural beauty, in Barbados stunning beaches are fringed with swaying palm trees making this the vision of paradise. Maxwell Beach stands out as one of the best, offering turquoise waters and some of the softest sand you’ll ever come across.

Due to its location on the south side of Barbados, the waters at Maxwell beach can be a little more lively than in other places. However they are still calm enough to take a dip from the heat, or enjoy a small boat trip. There are places to rent Hobie Cats along the beach and a few other watersports.

Stay: Sandals Barbados

While there is much more to the Caribbean than just its fantastic beaches, it truly is home to some of the best in the world. There are plenty of long white beaches to relax on, with waters great for scuba diving and other great water activities.

We know that just looking at the pictures of the best beaches in the Caribbean is enough to make you want to hop on a plane - but now you have more information about the amenities and activities available you can pick which one you want to lay your beach towel out on on your next holiday.
