The name itself speaks of exclusive experiences under coconut palms lining blue lagoons: the Caribbean is home to an infectious joie de vivre and colourful natural beauty. Marvel at the pink flamingos in the Bahamas, glide over the rainforest or go snorkelling in shimmering coral reefs. The colonial heritage of the islands is impressive. The waterfront in Willemstad and the marina on St Barthelemy are great places to sit in a bar and enjoy an exotic cocktail to toast your relaxing holiday.
