Anegada Beach in the Caribbean

Always on top of the game, the New York Times recently featured the Top Caribbean Beaches to “See Before you Die” in honor of the upcoming swell of travelers heading south for winter. Although it could be argued that just about every beach in the Caribbean is beautiful in its own way, this list of 6 beaches covers some of the most beautiful, most pristine and picture-perfect swathes of sand in all the Caribbean islands.

Anegada in the British Virgin Islands – This island sports eleven miles of pearly white sand free from crowds as the popular resorts on Virgin Gorda are miles away. The coral island is surrounded by beaches that spill into vibrant reefs. Charter a private jet to arrive or take a private yacht from Virgin Gorda.

Pink Beach on Barbuda – Although Bermuda may be famous for its rose colored beaches, this romantic burst of color on Barbuda is a welcome alternative from the popular beaches of neighboring Antigua. The remarkable Pink Beach is one of the widest shores in Barbuda and perfect for a quiet beach getaway.

Flamenco Beach in Culebra - Culebra is the spicy Spanish isle in the British Virgin Islands that harbors a simply spectacular paradise – Flamenco Beach. Like the dance of its namesake, this symmetrical beach gracefully frames a turquoise bay that’s warm and calm like a swimming pool.

Grace Bay on Providenciales – It’s no wonder that most of Providenciales’ luxury hotels are found alond Grace Bay’s beautiful sand. The idyllic shore embodies the Caribbean ideal – crystal blue water, powdery beach and ultra-luxury accommodations.

Cinnamon Bay on St. John – Head to the US Virgin Islands and you’ll most likely stop at the beautiful Trunk Bay. Just a few minutes away you’ll find Cinnamon Bay, a quiet, hidden gem guarded by palm tree groves. Popular for camping and laid-back beach days, you won’t have any sprawling resorts or fine dining here but you will find gorgeous views and a cove all to yourself.

Anse Chastanet on St. Lucia - The New York Times states that it may not top everyone’s list for Caribbean beaches, since it doesn’t have the pink and turquoise colors found in most of the other islands. Anse Chastanet offers ash-gray sand and dark, lake-like water that’s home to a variety of fish, making it one of the best unknown spots for snorkeling.
