The island, only 8 square miles wide, is hilly and offers several protected inlets with its picturesque and quiet beaches, making it a perfect destination for luxury travel for couples.
A must see is the city of Gustavia, which develops around a modern harbor where mega yachts gather together as well as fishing boats.
Behind it, the hills are dotted with the red roofs of the villas, and the avenues are populated by various shops. Another local feature is the high quality of the cuisine. Everything here, in short, is refined and elegant.
We are still in the Caribbean, but this time we are moving to the Bahamas, an archipelago of over 100 islands. The capital is on the island of New Providence, a heterogeneous mix of social life and uninhabited expanses, large resorts and accommodations slightly hidden from view.
This island, where two-thirds of the local inhabitants live, is often only a crossing point because it is characterized by a frenetic lifestyle, almost like that of the Western world.
However, there is no lack of pleasant places to find peace, especially in terms of white beaches, where the only sound you hear is waves.
The Abacus Islands, which are part of this archipelago, are also in high demand for luxury holidays for couples. They are characterized by an almost wild and uninhabited environment while allowing access to high-level services able to meet any need.
Here, ecotourism is very widespread. Tourists can explore the pine forests where wild boars and wild horses live, as well as the rare Abaco parrot and myriads of rare birds.
For this reason, among the most requested activities, walks with a final stop at the abandoned beaches that meet at the edge of the forest along the trekking routes stand out. You can also go kayaking to discover protected areas but, for the more traditional activities, there are proposals like golf, tennis or beach volleyball.
In the Caribbean area, we also find an evergreen, the Dominican Republic, with its beautiful peninsula of Samana that almost seems like an island in its own right characterized by coconut trees that skim the water of the sea.
It is a sort of microcosm that embraces every extreme, from poverty to wealth, from new highways to ill-traced paths.
But what most characterizes this peninsula are the green mountains, the tropical forests, the small villages dotted with stands of colorful fruit and vegetables, the exclusive and pristine beaches and the incomparable, radiant heat of the Dominicans.
The bay is also a favorite place for whale watching from January to March. The luxurious and modern Puerto Bahía Marina & Residences and Bannister Hotel resorts are located here and have brought a new type of tourism to this area, aiming for exclusivity.
