Its about that time of year again, when the holidays are over, and the world is starting to freeze over. That hump of winter right after Christmas and New Year can bring a lot of depression to a lot of people. There are no holidays to look forward to, and all we are left with is cold, wet weather that seems like it will never leave.
There are some islands that are more popular than others when it comes to getting away. Turks and Caicos is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and thousands of people flock there every year.
However, there are a lot of other islands out there that dont get the same attention, and they should. We have uncovered 15 Caribbean islands that no one is really talking about, and we tell you why they should be.
Guadalupe may be located in the Caribbean, but it is actually a region that is owned by France, bringing a European flair to the island.
There is a lot to do on the island, that a tourist would never be bored. There is swimming in hot springs, climbing an active volcano and many historic sites to see.
Barbuda is an island that is often forgotten about, and that is because people are more familiar with its sister island, Antigua.
What draws people to Barbuda is that it has a small andrelaxed feeling to it. The island is small, and only has about 1, 600 people, but it has some of the most beautiful beaches.
Grenada has a great tag line, The Spice of the Caribbean. The reason it has this tag line is that it is one of the largest producers of nutmeg and mace.
Grand Anse Beach is a world-famous beach located there that has a 2-mile stretch of soft, white sand and very calm waters for wading in.
If you are thinking of travelling to Trinidad, you may also want to skip it for Tobago, the smaller part of the island.
Tobago is a divers dream, as there is a lot to discover under the sea. They have 3 underwater shipwrecks to explore and a lot of tropical fish. There is also a ton of shopping and dining experiences.
If Martinique has a French sound to it that is because this is another Caribbean island that is owned by France. This is one of the largest islands found in The Lesser Antilles.
There are tons of things to do there, including exploring a volcano. They also have a wide array of beaches, including one that has grey and black sand.
Anguilla is an island that is located near Saint Martin in the middle of the Caribbean sea. It is a British territory, so that means that cars will drive on the left side of the road.
It is a smaller island, but there are still tons of things to do. The Travel Channel actually named this the number one in the world for best overall beaches. The island has 33 of them!
The Dominican Republic is well travelled and known, but Dominica is one that is often forgotten about. This island is located in the southern part of the Caribbean sea and is called the nature island.
The island is known for its many waterfalls, springs, rivers and a huge rainforest. This is the perfect island for nature lovers out there to explore.
Vieques is definitely a place that should be on your bucket list of Caribbean islands to visit. It is actually located in Puerto Rico.
It is home to Mosquito Bay, but dont let the name fool you, it is one of the brightest bays in the whole world. It is also home to some of the most secluded towns in the country.
The Bahamas may not be the most under-the-radar islands in the Caribbean, but they have a lot more to offer than a lot of people realize.
The Bahamas is home to one of the most beautiful pink beaches in the world. It is due to a small organism that has a reddish-pink shell. It is definitely one of the most fascinating things you will ever see.
Iles Des Saintes may technically be another Caribbean island that belongs to France, but it is a great destination in the Caribbean.
It has been described as a small slice of paradise, and it is often overlooked for the larger islands. This location is actually a small string of islands, and they have some of the best cafes in the world.
Jamaica is definitely still a popular vacation spot, but has the world forgotten about Montego Bay? If they have, then it is time that they book a trip.
Swimming is one of the most popular activities for tourists to do when they are in the Caribbean, however, Montego Bay offers something special. You can swim with horses!
One of the best parts about going on vacation is eating. A lot of people look forward to trying the delicious food and letting their diet go out the window for a week or two.
Saint Martin is where you want to go if you are looking for good food. They are famous for their skilled chefs and fine cuisine. The food is heavily influenced by French and Creole cooking.
Barbados is another island that is being neglected, and it shouldnt be if you are a surfer.
The island has the most consistent surf conditions. It is a coral island, which means that it has a coral reef that stretches all around the islands coastline. There is always a place to surf on this island.
Belize is one that you dont hear too often, but it is a dream for anyone out there who is itching to explore something.
Belize is home to Mayan ruins and lush jungles, perfect for anyone who wants to explore. They also have a lot of perfect beaches and caves, meaning there is something for everyone to do.
Cuba tends to get a bad reputation, and not a lot of people choose it as the first choice for their vacation. This may be a mistake because it is a great island to explore.
The 16th-centurytown of Old Havana is one of the most interesting and unique destinations in the world. The architecture is stunning, and the culture of the island will have you see the country in a new light.
