Best beaches in the Caribbean
Did you know? Providenciales is famous for its world class diving with miles and miles of spectacular coral reefs to explore. 
Did you know? Playa Paraiso translates as 'Paradise Beach' which isn't surprising given the beauty of this white sand beach which boasts some of the calmest waters in Cuba. 
The area around Flamenco Beach was used for US Navy and Marine exercises until the late 1970s and relics from that time, including tanks, can still be seen dotted across the beach.
Did you know? Hundreds of turtles nest all over Aruba each year but Eagle Beach is the most popular. The beach is covered with red and white markers to protect the nests during hatching season. 
Varadero beach is found on the Hicacos Peninsula, a spit of land which extends from the northern side of Cuba and is only 1.2km wide at its widest point.
The giant granite boulders on the beach at The Baths are evidence of the island's volcanic origins. The unusual formation forms grottos that open onto the sea.
Did you know? Despite its name, the beach is actually only around 6.3 miles long. The annual erosion that hits the beach may be the reason it's not as long as its name states. 
The Punta Cana area has beaches that face both the Caribbean and the Atlantic and the name Punta Cana literally means 'tip of the white cane palms'.
This beach not as long as it claims. The Jamaican beach is actually only four miles long.
Did you know? Even though Cruze Bay is the main town on St. John it has a population of less than 3,000 people. Maho Bay is home to some of the calmest waters on the island and is the perfect place to teach children to swim.
