Bridgetown, Barbados
On the wild and rugged east coast of Barbados, the isolated beaches are the colour of sunrise, the red sands having blown all the way across the Atlantic from the Sahara. The eastern most island of the Windwards, and indeed, of the entire Caribbean, reaches out to Africa and the Old World, as if not quite part of the New. Bridgetown, Barbados is an interesting town full of contrasts. George Washington actually slept here! Trafalgar Square reminds you that the laid back, rum-and-fun-loving island’s British-influenced heritage includes revered traditions like cricket and high tea.

At Sea


Montserrat Island, Lesser Antilles
Montserrat is a mountainous Caribbean island, part of the Lesser Antilles chain. Its Soufriere Hills volcano erupted in the 1990's causing significant damage to the south side of the island but leaving the north side unscathed. Black sand beaches, coral reefs, cliffs and shoreline caves remain intact.

Montserrat was the home of the famous recording studio founded by the Beatles producer, Sir George Martin, now deceased.

Tourists travel here to observe the devastating destruction of the south side.


Basseterre, St. Kitts
Unlike other islands where traditional lifestyles have been stamped out by mass tourism, St. Kitts boasts a thriving West Indian culture. Her lush and forested slopes rise gracefully to mist-shrouded peaks.

A worthwhile site for history buffs, the imposing 17th century fortress (Brimstone Hill) looms over green fields of sugar cane and banana trees. St. Kitts’ was the first successful colony in the British West Indies. Indeed, when viewed from the top of Brimstone Hill, the “Gibraltar of the Caribbean” appears to dominate everything in the Southern Sea.

Originally discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, the island was named for his patron saint, St. Christopher. The British later shortened the name to St. Kitts. The island was colonized beginning in 1623, first by the French, and then by English settlers. Britain and France held the island jointly from 1628 into the 1700's, with periods of fighting. By 1783, the treaty of Paris ceded St. Kitts and Nevis to Great Britain.

Basseterre has been the capital of St. Kitts since 1727, and remains the capital of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis today. It offers elegant Georgian architecture and colorful shopping.


Les Saintes, French West Indies
Just south of Guadeloupe, these idyllic tropical islands float like jewels in the Caribbean sea. Les Saintes are perfect for the kind of sailor who relishes unspoiled tropical beauty and the serenity that comes from doing next to nothing on a vacation. Only two of the eight little islands are inhabited, and Terre-de-Haut is the one travelers visit first. With superb beaches, lovely bays, great snorkeling and fascinating historical sites, this small island has a charming village with excellent restaurants, interesting shops and unique art galleries. The other populated island, peaceful Terre-de-Bas, is only a few minutes by boat from Terre-de-Haut. There are only 3,000 inhabitants in the islands. About half of them live on Terre-de-Haut with just a few dozen four-wheel drive vehicles on its roads.

Martinique Island
Martinique is directly north of St. Lucia, northwest of Barbados and south of Dominica. Land mass is 420 square miles of which 15 square miles is water. The island is volcanic in origin. The population is estimated at approximately 390,000. Martinique owes its name to Christopher Columbus who sited the island in 1493 and later to return in 1502 naming the island Martinica.

Historically, Martinique's economy relied on sugar cane farming which has since dwindled. Today tourism is the main source of income as well as the export of bananas to France.

The island has quirky historical sites which compliment European flair and Caribbean beauty. It is fashionable and elegant with an abundance of flora. A leading destination for European vacationers, it offers gorgeous beaches, great food and a variety of accommodations. Tourism is an important economic base yet, so are banana farming, cane raising and rum to a lesser degree.


Pigeon Island, St. Lucia
Pigeon Island National Landmark is one of the Caribbean's most historic spots, an important monument of St. Lucia's history.
