Let’s hit the beach

January 9, 2005


— How do you like your beach?

Whatever your pleasure, the Caribbean has it, and the February issue of Caribbean Travel & Life magazine is running the pictures to prove it, along with a list of "beaches that will leave you speechless." The beaches are:

  • Sand Dollar Point, Pine Cay, a serene two-mile stretch of white sand and clear water on an 800-acre islet owned by the Meridian Club on the Turks and Caicos islands. Sand Dollar Point is home to a mere 30 cottages, 13 tiki huts and a 12-room hotel.
  • Casuarina Beach, on the western shore of tiny Palm Island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, part of the Palm Island Resort. Here you'll find tawny sand and more palm trees than sun-worshippers.
  • Trunk Bay, St. John, which was preserved in its undeveloped state as part of the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park.
  • Palmetto Point, Barbuda, a little-known spot with soft white-and-pink sand.
  • North Coast, Anegada, 13 miles of all-but-deserted beach in the British Virgin Islands.
  • Flamenco Beach, Culebra, 17 miles east of Puerto Rico, popular among the residents of San Juan, a ferry ride away.
  • Baker's Bay, Guana Cay, at the northeastern tip of the Abacos' least-populated island.
  • Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island, in the Bahamas.
