Bermuda «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Enjoy an unforgettable rafting experience along the picturesque Martha Brae River. Keep your eyes peeled for local flora and fauna while you meander gently through whispering groves of bamboo and ferns. Santiago de Cuba, Cuba Visiting Santiago de Cuba is your chance to delve deep into Cuban history; it’s regarded as the root of the Cuban Revolution, with the Moncada Barracks and the Plaza de la Revolución key landmarks in Fidel Castro’s rise to power. Elsewhere, head to Céspedes Park and you’ll experience a slice of typical Cuban street life amid an abundance of colonial architecture. Road Town, Tortola Tortola was a famous pirate haunt of old, and still exhibits an air of mystery. Uncover the swashbuckling legends surrounding the area; unwind on the vast sugar-white sands; or enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with dolphins in the azure waters. Road Town, meanwhile, is typically old-world Caribbean and home to Pussers Bar, the perfect place to try some authentic rum. Basseterre, St. Kitts The elegant St. Kitts capital, Basseterre, is proudly home to some of the oldest buildings in the Caribbean. Take a tour to Brimstone Hill Fortress to admire spectacular views across the island, or to the natural wonders in the Botanical Gardens of Nevis. Alternatively, just relax on one of the tranquil beaches in the balmy climate. St. John’s, Antigua The stunning English Harbour and historic Nelson’s Dockyard are two of pretty Antigua’s highlights, sensational views of which can be savoured from the 490 feet-high lookout point at Shirley Heights. Elsewhere, a visit to the colourful street market in St. John’s is a must, along with a stop at one of 365 stunning beaches – one for each day of the year, so the locals say. Fort-de-France, Martinique The largest city in the French West Indies is surrounded by steep green hills. Among the tree-shaded walks and verdant floral displays you’ll find a cultural centre featuring a handful of historic sites, markets and museums. Plus, your stay on the island presents opportunities to visit the St. James Rum Distillery and sample typical Creole cuisine. Bridgetown, Barbados The laid-back atmosphere of Barbados is just one of many reasons why tourists flock to this very British Caribbean island. Go in search of sea turtles in the shimmering waters; venture to Harrison’s Cave and marvel at the impressive stalactites and stalagmites; or simply unwind on one of the many palm-fringed beaches, soaking up the tropical climate.
