Looking to go somewhere off the grid with fewer tourists?
Visiting an island that many tourists overlook gives you an opportunity to experience a more authentic Caribbean. For some, it’s to avoid the cost many touristy islands have and for others, it’s to take in an outdoor paradise the way it used to be. No matter what your reason to look for the road less traveled, it’s always worth it.
Here are our top three unspoiled Caribbean islands:
Montserrat is most well known for its lush greenery and Beatles producer, George Martin’s love for the island. Because of this, he even built is own ultimate recording studio here where big names like Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Michael Jackson, and more have visited. After the island’s volcano erupted in the 90’s, the island has yet to get back the tourism it once had. Since, the island has adapted to an eco-friendly atmosphere since, leaving more room for you and your blanket on the pristine white sandy beaches.

This island is a slice of Caribbean paradise and often called a hidden gem. Mostly because Anguilla is a quiet place for travelers to go to get away from all of the hustle and bustle. Since the island is neighboring St. Martin it’s a great destination for island hoppers alike. Here you can expect to find a rich art community, secluded beaches, fantastic diving, and incredible tropical beauty throughout.
3. St. Vincent & The Grenadines
Here is a wonderful collection of 32 islands all offering a wide array of activities for everyone. Eco-adventures are abundant, giving you plenty of room to create unforgettable memories on your trip. In addition, unlike many other destinations, only 8 of the islands are inhabited. If you’re a movie buff, it’s also where the blockbuster Hollywood movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl” was filmed.
While many islands thrive on tourism, some grow just by taking a step back and appreciating a slower pace. Any of these Caribbean destinations seem like a place you want to add to your trip itinerary? Contact our trip specialists here to start finally planning your dream vacation!
