LONDON, July 23, 2010 - The Caribbean is a firm favourite as a Virgin Holidays destination, which
comes as no surprise with everything on offer. With dazzling beaches, endless
watersports and quality golf the Caribbean attracts.

Affectionately known as 'Little England', Barbados is a charming island
with English traditions such as the classic afternoon tea or a day at the
races with the added bonus of glorious weather! Take advantage of the warm
waters and explore stunning coral gardens by snorkelling or scuba diving. The
Sea Breeze hotel Barbados (
os/sea_breeze_beach_hotel/) unsuprisingly has a beachfront location just five
minutes away from the lively St Lawrence Gap. Turtle Beach Resort
dos/turtle_beach_resort/) is another Barbados gem with a brilliant location
close to the airport and St Lawrence Gap. The resort is aptly named after the
turtles that lay eggs on the pristine beach in May and June, a wonderful
sight to behold.

Grenada is a beautiful island that is largely forgotten due to its more
developed neighbours. Grenadian by Rex Resorts (
a/grenadian_by_rex_resorts_all_inclusive/) is a great base from which to
explore the lush interior of the island including Etang National Park, home
to the spectacular Concord Falls, monkeys and exotic birds.

For an exciting Afro-latin vibe the Caribbean's largest island, Cuba is
the place to go. Cuba not only offers the gorgeous beaches, snorkelling and
the chance to swim with dolphins but a truly unique cultural experience.
Superclubs Breezes Jibacoa (
a/grenadian_by_rex_resorts_all_inclusive/) is a large resort in a picturesque
location which boasts five bars, four restaurants and nightly evening

Antigua is a classic paradise island and St James Beach Club Antigua
ua/the_beach_club/) is a brilliant base from which to enjoy the laid back
vibe. The resort owns a 100-acre site with two beaches, ample sports
facilities, two beautiful restaurants and the enchanting Nelson's Dockyard is
a mere five minutes away.
