LONDON, July 23, 2010 - The Caribbean is one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in the
world offering paradise beaches, some of the friendliest people on the planet
along with fascinating culture. For a unique holiday experience Virgin
Holidays recommends The BodyHoliday at LeSPORT (
in St Lucia, which offers guests to take part
in as much activity as they want or unwind on the secluded Cariblue beach.
The resort offers three swimming pools plus Jacuzzi, the Oasis spa and a
range of activity classes from spinning to windsurfing. The hotel also
features its own golf centre with four practise holes and a putting green,
tennis courts and an archery range.

Sandals resorts are Virgin Holidays luxury adults' only resorts and the
Sandals Royal Hicacos (
Resort & Spa is located on the largest
Caribbean island of Cuba on the magical Veradero beach. This couples-only
retreat has five tantalising restaurants all serving up their own speciality
from seafood to Italian as well as several bars including the poolside swim
up bar, ideal for those hot Caribbean days.

Tobago offers so much as an island; it's home to the oldest protected
rainforest in the Western hemisphere as well as the protected marine park of
Buccoo Reef. The Coco Reef resort (
is a brilliant base from which to explore
this stunning island and the villages of Charlotteville, Castara and
Scarborough are well worth a visit to get an authentic experience of life on

The Coconut Bay Beach Resort (
is a Virgin Holidays favourite hotel based
on the spectacular island of St Lucia. The resort is split into two parts;
'Harmony' is a relaxed adult only environment with a spa and tranquil pool,
the other part is 'Splash', which hosts St Lucia's only water park and
children's centre. This enables Virgin Holidays' guests to enjoy the type of
holiday that they require. The resort also has a wide variety of activities
ranging from free tennis lessons to paintball and even a dedicated
watersports centre for wind and kite surfing.

A popular resort on the laid back island of Antigua is the Halcyon Cove
Antigua (
by Rex Resorts located on the sandy white
beach of Dickenson Bay. The hotel features its own picturesque pier which
serves as a restaurant in the evening. For awe-inspiring views of the lush
rainforests and sparkling beaches the climb to Boggy peak, the highest point
on Antigua is well worth the effort!
