Things to Do on a Caribbean Holiday
By David R Hughes

All of us get tired of the humdrum of life and want to get away somewhere calm and peaceful for the holiday season. The Caribbean islands offer the perfect getaway. Its everything that our hectic daily life is not, sandy beaches, blue skies and turquoise waters, a bewitching landscape and nature at it's most raw and pristine form. No wonder 80% of Americans pick the Caribbean, the perfect tropical paradise, as a holiday destination.

The key holiday destinations from among the Caribbean Islands are the Virgin Islands, St. Barths, Antigua, The Genadines, St. Martin and St. Lucia. All of these Islands provide numerous activities and endless adventure throughout your stay.

Whether you're much of a sportsman or not, you'd find yourself compelled to try some of the thrilling water sports that the Caribbean is known for. From water skiing and jet skiing to canoeing, and from kite boarding to parasailing, there is a vast variety of water sports to suit your mood and disposition. Surfing is yet another hobby with Caribbean holiday makers that is appealing for the thrill it provides. Scuba diving, yachting and snorkelling are two more water sports that make the Caribbean a favourite destination for scuba divers and smokeless. Antigua is a great boating and yachting haven, with its famous Nelson's Harbour and the Antigua Yacht club. Barbuda is close to Antigua and is a favourite with visitors for scuba diving and snorkeling. It offers the world's best diving conditions and its exceptional caves, reefs and wrecks offer you a peek into the stunning marine life...

Talking of things to do on a Caribbean holiday, sailing is the best pastime with the ladies, and many of the holiday makers are seen sailing off to undiscovered, secluded little islands with their packed lunches, enjoying a private picnic in the midst of all the activity the main beaches are always buzzing with. The British Virgin Islands is the prime attraction for sailors with points of interest such as Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Peter's Island, Norman Island and Anegada For those who like to walk, a great pastime is hiking. Whether it be hiking up a volcano or walking through rainforests, the Caribbean offers an exciting terrain to explore. Yet another exciting pastime is horse riding. The Besse- Terre is one of the small Islands comprising the Guadeloupe Islands, which consists of thick forests and volcanic mountains and is an ideal location for hiking. For those who aren't much into walking, horse riding is an excellent way to explore the sandy beaches, lush landscape or enchanting forests of the Caribbean. The Spanish Virgin Islands, such as the Vieques offers horseback riding, bicycling and other activities for lovers of nature.

Those who would rather watch than take part in sports can count on the exciting range of spectator sports that are held regularly throughout the Islands. From cricket and polo matches to surfing competitions, the islands have it all. In addition to all that there are the legendary Caribbean carnivals, which are held with regularity all through the year. The carnivals are rich with music, dancing and street parades and add to the festive mood of the whole place. From among the things to do on a Caribbean holiday, the carnivals are the favourite with kids and old people alike. Some of the festivals of the Caribbean are the New Year's Sailing Regatta held at the coast of Montego Bay, Barbados annual Festival, Aruba Caribbean Carnival, Dominica Carnival, Trinidad Carnival, Moonsplash Music Festival, and Anguilla and so on. The large variety of things to do on a Caribbean holiday, in addition to the truly picturesque backdrop that it offers is one reason that that the Caribbean remains the most favourite holiday destination among people.
