Beach junkies and sun lovers will find some of the world's most spectacular stretches of sand on the islands of the Caribbean. With so many palm tree-lined, silky sand expanses leading down to warm, azure water, it's hard to narrow it down to just ten.

  • Paradise Beach

    Paradise Beach
    Carriacou

    Paradise Beach is considered one of the most popular of Carriacou’s beaches. The green shade trees, white sand, and clear turquoise waters are considered the sights that give Paradise Beach its name. A souvenir shop with handmade crafts and a restaurant and bar is nearby for shopping and dining.

  • Eagle Beach

    Eagle Beach
    Aruba

    Aruba's widest beach is also one of its most spectacular, thanks to its blindingly white sand, warm Caribbean waters and some of the island's most famous (and photographed) fofoti trees.

  • Grand Anse Beach

    Grand Anse Beach
    Grenada

    Many a visitor to the Caribbean's Spice Island never leave the 2-mile stretch of creamy white sand known as Grand Anse Beach. Located conveniently close to St. George's, the beach has an old Caribbean feel, plenty of room for walking and loads of restaurants, hotels and shops to meet any beach-goer's needs.

  • Grote Knip

    Grote Knip
    Curacao

    This curve of white sand backed by verdant hills is popular with locals as well as tourists, busy on weekends but almost deserted on weekdays. Strong swimmers can snorkel above a reef offshore.

  • Dickenson Bay

    Dickenson Bay
    Antigua & Barbuda

    10Best Contributor Ursula Barzey reports, “Popular with locals and tourists, the mile-long white sandy beachfront is lined with hotels, restaurants, and beach bars.” Water sports facilities and concessions are readily available on Dickenson Bay beach, and the calm waters provide an ideal setting for an active day in the seas. Jet skis, kayaks, banana boat rides, and catamaran boat cruises are all easily assessable.

  • Maho Beach

    Maho Beach
    Sint Maarten

    Its position at the end of the runway makes Maho Beach one of the most famous in Sint Maarten. Beach goers soaking up rays on the white sand stretch can watch as jets come in for landing.

  • Honeymoon Beach

    Honeymoon Beach
    St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

    Honeymoon Beach, inside Virgin Islands National Park on the island of St. John, offers soft white wand, shallow water and shade from coconut palms. Beach goers can rent water sports equipment from an outfitter right in the sand.

  • Grace Bay Beach

    Grace Bay Beach
    Turks and Caicos

    On the north side of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos sits three-mile-long Grace Bay, a long stretch of sand lined with excellent resorts and tourist services. The endless (and unbelievably soft) white sand and mesmerizing turquoise water are often rather quiet, as there isn't a cruise ship in sight.

  • Shoal Bay

    Shoal Bay
    Anguilla

    “Two miles of pristine white sand beach with crystal clear water” is how 10Best Contributor Ursula Barzey describes Shoal Beach, considered by many to be Anguilla’s most famous beach. This two-mile sandy beach is known for its unique, pinkish-tinted white sand and exceptional turquoise water. Restaurants, beach bars, and hotels line the beach, and it is the home of many water sports, including diving, kayaking, and snorkeling.

  • Seven-Mile Beach

    Seven-Mile Beach
    Cayman Islands

    To experience an ideal tropical setting, visit Seven Mile Beach in Negril. This Jamaican beach offers panoramic ocean views, serene blue waters, and silky white sand. It is full of fun activities and attractions – jet skiing, scuba diving, glass-bottom boat rides, and more. 10Best Contributor Chelle Watson recommends, “Avoid spring break and all-inclusives for a beach experience where you become part of the local scene.”
