Things to do in the Caribbean

Part 1

1)    Shop for sales in St Barth’s

Indulge that caribbean shopaholic in you and splash out in the designer shops of St Barth’s. Duty free, but still expensive, be ahead of the game and hit the sale in June and October.

2)    Catch and eat your own lobster in Nevis

The Four Seasons Resort in Nevis offers guests the opportunity to dive for the elusive Nevisian spiny lobster. Not only that, but they then can catch these exotic sea life, learn how to prepare and cook them and then come the evening dine on a delicious seafood extravaganza.

3)    Kite-surfing in St Martin

Is it possible to learn to kite-surf in one day? WindAdventures thinks you can. Take part in a class or learn with a private tutor and ride the waves of St Martin.

4)    Experience St Lucia on the ‘Aerial Tram’

For a totally different way of seeing St. Lucia, and perhaps the most exciting, try zip-lining. Take the St Lucia Aerial Tram and Zip line Canopy tour and experience the spectacle of St Lucia high up in the rainforest heights.

5)    Cruise underwater in your own private submarine.

Want to explore the depth of the Caribbean Sea in your own private submarine? The Nassau SUB Bahamas Adventure tour lets you do just that. Traverse through coral reefs and be up close to the colourful and exotic sea life.

6)    Shark Diving in the Bahamas

Try something slightly more dangerous with an exhilarating diving experience to see the Caribbean Reef Sharks. Stuart Cove offers trips to see these hunters of the deep as well as allowing divers to explore the reefs and coral walls of Nassau. This shark adventure is a a two-tank scuba dive for experienced divers and costs about £70 per person.

7)    Bird watching in Trinidad

A natural aviary along one of the major migratory route, Trinidad is home to hundreds of species of birds. From the Trinidad piping guan, to the bearded bellbird and scarlet ibis, Trinidad is a bird watchers dream.

8)    Visit original plantation buildings in Anguilla

Experience a true slice of Anguillan history with a visit to the Wall Blake House. An original plantation house built in 1787; one of a few left on the island, this whole complex has been meticulously restored and includes original kitchens, stables and workers’ gardens.

9)    A rail adventure in St Kitts

For a vintage travel experience, it is worthwhile opportunity to take the train in St Kitts Scenic Railway. Built between 1912 and 1926, the railway was used to carry sugar car from the plantations to the factory in Bassettere. A three-hour circular route of the island, there are over 18 miles of narrow gauge train track for one to explore, and 12 additional miles on sightseeing bus.

10) Turtle watching in Nevis

From early July to mid-August, join the Montpelier Plantation inn on their night vigils to watch Hawksbill and leatherback turtles bury their eggs along the Nevis coastline.

11)  Dive during the full moon in Curacoa

Once a year, usually in late September, the seas around Curacoa become awash with life as the coral reef species release millions of spawned eggs that are lit up by the summer full moon, attracting a multitude of fish.

12)  Have a ‘desert island’ BBQ in Anguilla

You can’t leave Anguilla without experience an authentic Caribbean Barbecue. Stop by then the barbecue restaurant on Sandy Island for some truly delicious food. A free shuttle runs from the mainland every 20 minutes and once there, eat, swim and snorkel and enjoy the local, live music.
