Unique Caribbean

Being some of the most popular beach destinations in the world, the 7,000+ Caribbean Islands see a footfall that crosses the 25 million mark every year, but a majority of that crowd never manages to see beyond the popular tourist spots. If you are planning a trip to the Caribbean any time soon, make sure you visit at least one of these four locations, which are unique in their own way and will probably give you a better experience than just going and seeing what everyone always does.


People don’t come to Dominica for the big resorts and lavish spas because there’s no shortage of that elsewhere in the Caribbean. People come to the tiny island-nation (which is often confused with the completely separate nation of the Dominican Republic) to experience the natural beauty of the region in its full splendor. Filled with mostly undisturbed rainforests, natural streams,and mountains, Dominica has been dubbed as Nature Island for good reason. As long as you enjoy outdoor activities such as trekking, swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling, you will love visiting Dominica.

There are five islands in this unique archipelago, which are namely Grand Terre, Basse Terre, Iles des Saint, Maria Galante, and La Desirade. What makes the Guadeloupe Islands unique is the fact that it’s one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse regions in the whole of the Caribbean. Although the place is part of French overseas territory and the official language is French, there are a lot of other languages that are spoken there. Before you set out to experience the multiethnic culture and cuisine, alongside the fabulous beaches and the picturesque mountains, visit to get all the information you need on the archipelago before actually going to the place.

The Caribbean Islands are still beautiful, but as is always the situation with any place touched by modern tourism, most of the popular islands in the region have changed over the course of the last few decades. Nevis is one of the last remnants of a golden time when the Caribbean was still untouched by the stain of tourism, and its centuries-old plantation homes that have since been converted into guest accommodations stand a testament to that fact. The nostalgic feeling you get in Nevis is what makes it unique.


If you are looking for a place to snorkel and dive in peace, it doesn’t get much better than Saba. The Dutch municipality spans about five square miles and is home to the majestic Saba National Marine Park. It isn’t as remote as Nevis though because there are a lot of guesthouses and hotels for the tourists here. Even so, they have been constructed in a way so as to not impact the ecology around them in any way.

When someone mentions the word “Caribbean,” stereotypical mental pictures of Bob Marley singing reggae, the Jamaican flag, and sunny beaches may spring up reflexively, but there’s a lot more to the region than just that and you can experience some unique aspects of the place by traveling to any of these four locations.
