If so, the locality of the Caribbean Sea is the most ideal choice. Refresh yourself with a tasty drink next to the charming white sand of the shore.

Location of the Caribbean
The phrase, Caribbean region, stands for the North and Central American groups of islands. In a broader sense, some Central and South American countries also belong here, such as Columbia or Venezuela. There are more than 700 islands in the region. We can divide the Caribbean Islands into three main parts. The Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the Lesser Antilles.
History of the Caribbean
Christopher Columbus discovered the vicinity of the Caribbean Sea. Spain and Portugal colonized the region. According to the Treaty of Tordesillas, both parties agreed on a peaceful subdivision of the area. Spanish and Portuguese influence decreased in the 1600s as the Dutch, French, and British expropriated the islands. The region engaged in the trade of sugar, coffee, tobacco, cotton, and rice thanks to the plantations on the Caribbean islands.
Beaches in the Caribbean
There are several gorgeous beaches, gulfs, and lagoons here. The crystal clear seawater and warm sunlight create a picturesque view. The beauty of the landscape will surely make your travel memorable. The white sandy shores of the Caribbean Sea are among the most astonishing swimming sites in the world.
Gulf of Maundays, Anguilla
One of the most popular holiday resorts, Cap Julica is in this gulf. The amazing five-star resort provides full comfort and luxury. Thus, no wonder celebrities also like staying here. The beach has a private bar and other services as well.
Valley Church, Antigua
A cosy beach that enchants visitors with different shades of blue water. The water is calm and crystal clear, white sand carpet covers its shore. You can discover hundreds of other beaches between Antigua and Barbuda. They will certainly outshine your expectations. The secret gems of this area are its hidden gulfs, which you too can explore if you rent a boat.
Pink Sands beach
Many visit Harbour Island to view this famous section of the seaside. The coral is a unique mixture of broken shells, miniature stones, and calcium carbonate. It colours the sand with pink fragments. It’s a wide and long beach surrounded by calm water. It can be an ideal and beautiful venue for wedding ceremonies, sports, or yoga.
Treasure Beach, Bahamas
It’s among the best beaches in the world. Treasure beach is a 3,5-mile-long section of the shore with every service available to make a vacation incomparable and even more excellent. You can enjoy pleasant cafés and restaurants or try watersports.
Main attractions in the Caribbean
The picturesque scenery welcomes visitors with several colourful and unique programs. Besides beautiful beaches, you can take pleasure in viewing the exotic flora of the jungle or the underwater wildlife. Sea turtles are amazing residents of the Caribbean Sea. They are one of the endangered species, thus, numerous rescue and breeding programs started in the past few years to protect the animals.
Many visitors come to Puerto Rico to see the turtles, while they’re laying their eggs in the sand. They also come to see the exciting moment, when the little turtles leave their nests and go into the water. Besides water and seaside sights the Caribbean region also has a rich cultural heritage. There are more than 40 museums in Cuba, that display art, music, the revolution, chocolate, or cigars.
The Caribbean weather
The Caribbean region has the traits of the all year hot and humid tropical climate. The weather is somewhat cool and dry from the middle of January to the middle of April. From the middle of June to the middle of November it’s usually hot, wet, and rainy. Subtropical monsoon climate dominates in the region. The average yearly temperature is 28 °C.
Caribbean yacht charters
A roundtrip on the Caribbean Sea could be a very exciting and memorable program for the whole family. Rent a small boat, a luxury yacht, or a sailboat. It’s important that you find out about landing places. The Caribbean region involves numerous ports, small and large. However, they might be very different.
The most popular and most high-standard ports are in the larger cities. These are the ports of for example Nassau, Falmouth, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, or Mexico. They are well-equipped and provide all services inevitable for boating. The majority of sea centers and smaller islands are in daily connection. Thus, they arrange boat trips and ferryboats as well.
Another option is to explore the sea by yourself on a deck of a yacht charter. If your only wish is an amazing sea vacation, or the presence of stunning natural wonders, visit the Caribbean Sea to find all of these.
