Princess Beatrice holidays in St Barts with Jimmy Carr and the Redknapps

Princess Beatrice is currently enjoying a sunshine holiday on the idyllic Caribbean island of St Barts.

And, along with her boyfriend of six years, Dave Clark, she's been joined by comedian Jimmy Carr, his girlfriend Karoline Copping, and Jamie and Louise Redknapp.

The unlikely group were spotted walking around town together, and indulging in some upmarket shopping, heading into Hermes.

They then enjoyed dinner together later that evening.

According to the Daily Mail, Beatrice had been spotted earlier in the day enjoying lunch on a yacht in a purple bikini.

For many of us just the name Barbados conjures up images of caster sugar beaches and warm azure sea. You can find all that and more, plus in Bridgetown music-filled bars, markets and the historic Garrison area. Must-sees include Harrison's Cave, a group of caverns filled with stalagmites and stalactites.
Take me there: P&O has a 14-night cruise departing Barbados on 2 Jan 2015 from £999pp, based on two sharing, including flights.
St Lucia boasts some of the most diverse landscape in the Caribbean, from the magnificent Pitons (twin peak mountain) to the sulphur springs and drive-in volcano at Soufrière. It's also a great island to try zip-wiring (all those trees) and exploring by ATV.
Take me there: Holland America has 11-night cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, calling at St Lucia, St Thomas, St Kitts and Barbados, from £891pp cruise only, departing on 5 Jan 2015, based on two sharing.
You've probably heard that Antigua has 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, and with its banana trees and stunning Englishman's harbour, it's certainly worth exploring. But the chance to visit the neighbouring (and exclusive) island of Barbuda, with its pale pink sand and Frigate bird sanctuary, is not to be missed.
Take me there: Princess Cruises has a 10-day Caribbean Islander cruise from New York on October 25 2015, calling at St Thomas, Antigua and Aruba from £599pp, not including flights.
Translucent water teaming with tropical fish and pristine beaches make the Bahamas the quintissential Caribbbean escape.
Take me there: On a Disney cruise you'll call at Nassau, where you can spend the day swimming with dolphins or hanging out at the Atlantis resort, and you'll also visit the cruise line's own private island, Castaway Cay. An 11-night cruise-and-stay holiday, including seven nights at Walt Disney World resort Florida and a four-night Bahamas cruise from Port Canaveral starts at £1299pp in 2015 (virginholidaycruises.co.uk).
With its lush green rainforest, mountains and reggae everywhere you go, Jamaica is without doubt one of the most intriguing islands in the Caribbean. On a day trip you can go bareback horseriding in the sea, climb Dunn's waterfall and still have time for a lunch of jerk chicken, rice and peas; or if you're a music fan, head for The Bob Marley Centre & Mausoleum. Jamaica is the kind of island that seduces you from your first visit. Trust us, you won't want to leave.
Take me there: MSC Cruises has a seven-night cruise from Miami, departing in February 2015, calling at Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas and Mexico,from £459pp (a saving of £200pp on the brochure price), based on two sharing, not including flights.
The chance to visit Cuba before big changes take place makes the island one of the hottest destinations for 2015. Havana, with its crumbling baroque and neoclassical buildings and squares, old cadillacs cruising the streets and extraordinary history is not to be missed.
Take me there: Thomson has a seven-night Cuban Fusion cruise, departing from 30 December to 7 April 2015, sailing from Montego Bay in Jamaica with two days in Havana, from £1,039pp, based on two people sharing, including flights.

Divers and snorkellers will be in their element in this small Central American country - the 150-mile Belize Barrier Reef offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world. There are also Mayan ruins to visit in the jungle, notably at Altun Ha, which dates back to 900BC.
Take me there: Norwegian Cruise Line has a seven night cruise calling at Belize from £1,040pp, based on two sharing, including flights.

Arguably one of the prettiest islands in the Caribbean, with the 17th-century UNESCO-listed Dutch colonial quarter of Willemstad the biggest attraction. Must-sees include the gingerbread houses painted in pastel colours and floating market. 
Getting there: Carnival has an eight-day Southern Caribbean cruise from £627pp in March 2015, cruise only, based on two sharing.
Away from its all-inclusive resorts, the Dominican Republic is one of the most fascinating islands in the Caribbean, with a distinctly Latin flavour. Head for Santo Domingo, with its beautiful preserved architecture and museums. Must-sees include the former viceregal residence of Alcázar de Colón, Ozama Fortress and Santa Maria La Menor Cathedral. 
Getting there: Thomson Cruises has an 18-night cruise sailing in April 2015, from £1467pp, departing from Montego Bay, Jamaica and calling at La Romana in the Dominican Republic. Other ports of call include St Kitts, Antigua, the Azores and Majorca.
Considered the most glam of the ABC islands (the others are Curacao and Bonaire), Aruba has magnificent white-sand beaches perfect for chilling out.
Take me there: Norwegian has an 11-night Southern Caribbean cruise from Miami, sailing regularly from November to March, from £1,394pp, based on two sharing, including flights.

And St Barts is also a top holiday hotspot, with the rich and famous flocking to its white sands in their droves.

It is a volcanic island fully encircled by shallow reefs, and has a population of over 9,000. Its capital is Gustavia, which also contains the main harbour to the island.

One of the island's top hotels, the Eden Rock, is owned by the family of Made in Chelsea star, Spencer Matthews.

Walk along the ocean floor and discover the amazing corals and tropical fish in the Dominican Republic on an underwater family adventure. Children as young as eight can explore the underwater world as the only skills required are walking and breathing. The Seaquarium Underwater Adventure in Punta Cana allows you discover a submarine wreck, get up close to reefs and meet stingrays, sharks and colourful fish. All you have to do is slip on a helmet and attach an air tube to start exploring - you don't even have to get your hair wet!

Family holidays can be costly but if you're looking for an affordable way to experience the Caribbean, going all-inclusive could be the answer. The Dominican Republic has an excellent choice of all-inclusive hotels for families in Punta Cana, where you will find a 30-mile stretch of soft white sand, swaying palm trees and calm turquoise waters. The all-inclusive options here are vast and offer something for everyone. Try Dreams Punta Cana home to the largest free-form swimming pool on the island, Now Larimar Punta Cana for its fantastic Explorer's Club for kids or Occidental Grand Punta Cana for a tranquil atmosphere.

With lush green rainforest, tropical fauna and fascinating wildlife, Saint Lucia is the island for nature lovers. Rainforest Adventures is home to the Aerial Tram tour, where you are transported into the heights of the island's forest reserve. Both the kids and adults will enjoy the magical bird's-eye view of nature on this peaceful ride through the canopy of the Castries Waterworks Reserve in Babonneau. Those who like to explore the sights on foot should go on a Saint Lucia Rainforest Walk, where a forestry guide will lead you on an awe-inspiring nature walk to see massive gommier trees, spot Mangrove Cuckoos and hear the cry of the elusive Saint Lucian Parrot.

The crystal-clear calm waters of the Caribbean are ideal for snorkelling and perfect for discovering the beauty of St. Kitts as a family. South Friars Bay, White House Bay and Frigate Bay are some of the best spots for snorkelling. Blue Water Safaris offers a half day snorkelling trip with travel on a luxurious catamaran across the turquoise waters of St. Kitts & Nevis. Families will explore the finest snorkelling spot in the area, where colourful marine life is abundant, and enjoy a spot of lunch at sea.

Wonderful for kids with fun beach activities galore, there is plenty to keep the little ones entertained during a Caribbean getaway but what about the teens? St. Kitts is a fantastic island for older children and offers a wealth of adventure, thrills and nightlife. Zip lining, Flyboarding and stand up paddle boarding are some of the exciting experiences teenagers will love. They won't want to miss out on the lively beach bar scene at hotspot The Strip either. The area of Frigate Bay has a selection of places to eat, dance and socialise, such as The Dock (part of the Timothy Beach Resort) which boasts spectacular sunset views, lively Ziggy's Bar and Mr. X's Shiggidy Shack where you can enjoy a roaring bonfire, live band and karaoke. Stay at the three-star Timothy Beach Resort located directly on the Caribbean beach and beside The Strip.
Children will adore getting up close to sea turtles in St. Kitts and visitors as young as five can become a Sea Turtle Junior Conservationist to get a hands on experience in the life of sea turtles from April to June or July to September. As a Junior Conservationist, kids will accompany a research team during the nesting season as well as participate in fun-filled games aimed at teaching them about the survival and nesting behaviour of the sea turtles. They will learn how to make a sea turtle nest, take part in sea turtle jeopardy and even act as a sea turtle! Species found in St. Kitts include Hawksbill, Leatherback, Green Sea and Loggerhead Sea Turtles.

On mountainous Saint Lucia, you can visit the Caribbean's only drive-in volcano in Soufriere with the kids. Locally known as the Sulphur Springs, the attraction's road runs right through the crater of the volcano, which emits steam and bubbling sulphur. Don't forget your swimsuits as further downstream the temperature of the sulphur is not so hot and perfect for enjoying a family mud bath. There are observation decks so visitors don't get too close to the hot sulphur and steam, and a mini picnic park where you can stop for lunch. Rainforest Adventure offers excursions to the Soufriere Volcano, including the hot springs and mud baths at the Sulphur Springs.

Whichever Caribbean island you’re visiting, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. Super soft white sand, warm turquoise water and swaying palm trees provide idyllic days out at the beach. The Dominican Republic's Playa Boca Chica is one of the island's most family-friendly of all, while Punta Cana offers safe swimming all year round. In St. Kitts, White House Bay, Turtle Beach and South Friars Bay are some of the best spots to float around and take in some Vitamin D. Those looking for calm waters and long strolls in Saint Lucia should head for Reduit Beach, Jalousie Beach and Grande Anse.

Coconut Bay Resort and Spa was voted the number one hotel for families by TripAdvisor reviewers in 2012, and with its fabulous oceanfront setting, brilliant kids' club and the island's largest waterpark we can see why. The Splash area is where families can stay in colourful rooms overlooking waterpark CocoLand, which features a large activity pool, lazy river and exciting water slides. There is also the fully supervised Kidz Klub and the Caribbean’s first paintball facility to keep children of all ages entertained. For the parents, there are Caribbean street parties, a swim-up bar and four different dining spaces.

The Dominican Republic is the perfect island to hit the waves and learn to surf. Awe-inspiring Macao Beach in northern Punta Cana boasts picture-perfect seascapes and consistent wave sets. As one of the top destinations for surfers in the Dominican Republic, Macao has shallow waters and a smooth sandy beach bottom making it safe for the whole family to learn how to surf. On a lesson with Punta Cana Tours, you will be taught the basic safety tips, how to paddle, stand up and keep your balance. It's the ultimate way for families to have fun and enjoy the dreamy Caribbean waters!

Highlights: Explore your adventurous side on a hiking trail or watch the wildlife in the national park. Relax on the sandy white beaches and cool down in the clear blue waters with some snorkeling and swimming.
Highlights: Enjoy the vibrant buzz on Grand Cayman's busy docks or relax on the beautiful Seven Mile Beach. A trip to Gran Cayman wouldn't be complete without a visit to Stingray City. Swim alongside the stingrays or take a boat ride through the tranquil waters.
Highlights: The most populated of the Turks and Caicos islands, Providenciales is recognised as one of the world’s top beach destinations.

The luxurious resorts of Grace Bay make it a popular choice for beach getaways.
Highlights: Bask in the beauty of the glowing electric blue water at Mosquito Bay. Take advantage of the neon waters with a trip in a clear-bottomed boat or a kayak trip. There is plenty of nature and wildlife to see, from the undeveloped beaches to the feral horses you will find exploring the dunes to the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.
Highlights: This beautiful unspoiled island is the perfect location for nature lovers. With more than 200 species of birds and as many flamingos as people, this island is brimming with natural charm. Join divers from all around the world in the reef-lined coast, a National Maritime Park. And if you can bear to drag yourself away from the beach for an afternoon, why not visit the Bonaire Donkey Sanctuary.
Highlights: This blissful island is the perfect location for a romantic getaway.

Highlights: For the ultimate laid-back relaxing break, head to Virgin Gorda (so named because this British Virgin Island resembles a large reclining woman).

Hanging out in the hammock at Mad Dog while you sip a Painkiller is the ultimate in Virgin Gorda relaxation.
