Bahamas; St. Maarten; St. Barts, Anguilla & Saba; and Barbados
Photos from mid-winter breaks in three separate parts of the Caribbean: The Bahamas, St. Maarten and its Island Neighbours, and Barbados. There are pages with more details on each (links below) but you can also access the pictures files directly from the links on this page.
Photos from my first visit to the Bahamas. The weather was perfect, sunny and warrm, and the Bahamas lived up to its reputation for beautiful sandy beaches and clear blue seas. The economy of the Bahamas now relies on tourism rather than physical piracy.
The part-Dutch and part-French Caribbean island of St. Maarten / St. Martin was my winter break destination for several years. I've assembled photos from all years and organized them by location and activity. St. Maarten / St. Martin is beautiful. It offers a wide range of activities for visitors. And it is an interesting case of lightning-fast tourist industry development. (I haven't been back since the devastating 2017 hurricane.)
St. Maarten's Island Neighbours, St. Barts, Anguilla and Saba, are each accessible as day trips from St. St. Barts is French and hilly, Anguilla is English and flat, and Saba is Dutch and extremely mountainous.
Barbados was one of my one-time winter break destinations. This former British colony is one of the most developed of Caribbean islands. It offers lots of great beaches and some unique tourist attractions.
