The 10 Best Islands to Visit in the Caribbean

Get swept away in paradise with some of our favorite Carribean Islands!

Saint Lucia
Honeymooners have travelled hundreds of miles just to stay at the “World’s Leading Honeymoon” destination. It is not surprising Saint Lucia has earned this title, with its volcanic beaches, reef diving sites, fishing villages, and luxury resorts. The Pitons, tapered mountains on the West Coast, and the spectacular waterfalls of the Toraille flow over a cliff into lush gardens, are sites not to be missed!
Dry and sunny, with tropical trade winds, bring cool breezes to you each and every day at this dreamy spot. Powdery, white sand and pastel facades invite you to slow down and relax. Experience the languages spoken in Aruba of English, Dutch and Spanish, at this unique location.

St. Kitts
Known for the warm welcoming of its locals, this island has just opened Park Hyatt Hotel, the first of theirs to be located in the Caribbean Islands. If you are looking for pure luxury, look no further than this world-class hotel. Visit St. Kitts to dig your toes into the gray, black, and white sand of the beaches that this spectacular island is so famous for.

St. Barth
Also known as St. Barts, St. Barth is a French-speaking island, with exquisite designer shops and white beaches. The most charming area to visit is Shell Beach. St. Barth is also host to one of the four most spectacular beaches in the world because it is covered with millions of unique shells. This is a gem that should not be missed!

With its distinctive blend of French and the West Indian influence, this island has been a vacation hotspot for many years for both the upper-class French, and the budget-conscious traveler. Martinique has a hybrid-type cuisine, which features African, French, Carib Amerindian, and South Asian elements. Be sure to bring your appetite!

St. Croix
The largest of the Virgin Islands has become the home to the Caribbean Islands of top-notch restaurants. In the historic town of Christiansted, you will find Zion Modern Kitchen and Uptown Eatery, showcasing the finest Carribean cuisine.

Many sand beaches and coral reefs are yours to explore, with winding trails that lead up to Shirley Heights --a former military lookout, to see the most phenomenal panoramic views ever. Visit Jabberwock Beach for kitesurfing, or for a true taste of the island, enjoy a drink at the Antigua Distillery.

Harbour Island
This spot is quickly becoming the Crown Jewel of the Caribbean with its quaint boutiques, pastel-painted cottages, and lovely hotels. One of the biggest draws on the island, however, is the famous Pink Sand Beach. This is a site not to be missed! Be sure to also visit Devil’s Backbone, where marine life is plentiful with turtles and stingrays.

Known for the island that “has it all,” this one will blow you away. Experience the powdery sand beaches and tranquil turquoise blue bays, as well as local traditions like afternoon tea or cricket. Looking for something more energizing? The nightlife in Barbados is as big as the island itself --with dinner shows, romantic cruises, and live bands!

As the capital of the Bahamas, this island has offshore coral reefs that are ideal for diving and snorkeling, and views of its dainty pastel-colored city. This has been a long-time favorite port for cruise ships, as it has a major appeal of a big city, while still remaining tropical.

So come visit the spectacular beaches and enticing crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Islands! Interested? Contact us today for a free quote!

Why Booking With a Travel Agent Gets You the Most Bang For Your Buck

The Struggle is Real

Are making travel plans for you and your family a complete headache? Are you sick of getting bounced around to international call centers that leave you feeling confused and frustrated?

That frustration stops here. With L&S Travel, we'll handle your travel arrangements from start to finish, with no fuss, no confusion, and absolutely NO drama.

Consider This

Did you know that by NOT booking with a travel agent, you are ultimately paying for a service that you never received? 
In Layman's terms, booking with a travel agent costs you nothing more than you would pay if you were to book online yourself. Yes, the agency makes a commission on the trips they book, but only until after you've return from travel –which is already factored into the price.
So really, if you book your next getaway with a travel agency, you will not only get to utilize their travel planning expertise and services, but you will be supporting their small business. See, everyone wins. :)
