Which islands to visit depends on which activities you want to be involved in.

The Virgin islands are simply stunning and if you want a backdrop for

spending time on the yacht or making the most of the sports equipment

– look no further, it doesn’t get any better.

In the Bahamas flit from island to island scuba diving off the coral

rich Abacos, Andros or the most beautiful of them all, Eleuthera.

Here is a place where parrots,

angels, tigers and butterflies

are all species of fish.

The Leewards and Windwards form a 500 mile curve of Caribbean culture

where locals speak English, French, Spanish or Dutch. Beautiful desert islands

(Anguilla and Barbuda), mountainous jungle clad islands (St Lucia, Nevis and

Domenica), volcanic islands (Monserrat, St Vincent, St Kitts), lifestyle islands

(St Barths, Antigua, Barbados).

The list goes on until you quickly realise that no matter what you want to

do, there is an island for it. The French style of St Barths, English cool on Antigua,

the river deep mountain high sights of Domenica or the gorgeous sailing

shallows of the Tobago Cays. Regattas such as the St Barths Bucket or Antigua

Sailing Week are wonderful events in which to participate, spectate or just be

part of the after party.
