Add These Underrated Caribbean Beaches To Your Bucket List
The black sand on this Martinique beach makes it a must-see. The warm, tranquil water is filled with sponges, turtles, and fish in the shallows and depths offshore.
Anse Noire
This beach — located on the south end of St. Kitts — is beautifully low-key with tall, skinny palms, slender strips of light golden sand, and glorious turquoise water.
Banana Bay
The gorgeous blue-green waters in this bay on the island of Tobago are great for snorkeling, and as it’s only accessible by boat, the beach is generally pretty empty.
Cotton Bay
The soft sand, turquoise water, and densely green headlands make this Jamaican cove pure bliss. The beach is part of the resort, but a day pass costs only US$12.
Frenchman's Cove
With unruly waters, this isn't a tranquil, float-in-the-water beach. But its rugged nature and rocky landscape are a welcome contrast to other beaches in St. Lucia.
