Water Island, U.S. Virgin Islands


Water Island has a population of under 200. This is one great place for a secluded Caribbean getaway. Honeymoon Beach serves as the unofficial community center for the residents. Heidi's Honeymoon Grill which is a food truck parked on the beach, dish out delicious fares on picnic tables. That should describe the experience that you can expect. This quaint speck of land is a short 10-minute ferry trip from St. Thomas. You can stay in one of the many vacation homes for about $1200 a week (Visit vrbo.com).


Isla de Providencia, Colombia


Providencia is great for a quiet romantic getaway. This secluded island is a short 25-minute flight from neighboring San Andrés Island. Residents of Providencia is proud of their island's association with Sir Henry Morgan, the 17th-century swashbuckler who is depicted on rum bottles. A floating bridge separates Providencia from Santa Catalina, which is one of Morgan's hideouts. You may well stumbled some old hidden treasures here. The view from the top of the El Pico mountain reveals a stunning view of pristine rain forests. You can get reasonable rates at the Hotel El Pitrata Morgan, near Aguadulce Bay. There are 27 rooms with private balconies overlooking the hotel pool. (Telephone 011-57/8-514-8232. Rates from $62).


Comarca Kuna Yala, Panama


Comarca Kuna Yala is a archipelago of more than 350 islands. One of Panama's largest indigenous groups, the Kuna people call this place home. The Kuna womenfolks make and sell molas, which are swatches of hand-embroidered cloth in vivid colors. The men fish for grouper and mackerel or work as guides for visitors on boat trips to the archipelago's many uninhabited islands. For an exclusive getaway, try staying at Cabanas Uaguinega on Achutupu Island, a 45 minutes flight from Panama City. Accomodation is a bamboo-walled, solar-powered cabin. (Check out uaguinega.com, rate from $140 per person).


Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe


Terre-de-Haut is a 45-minute ferry ride from Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe. Yet it is like a world apart. There are scenes of goats nibbling away at scrubby plants on the hillsides. In the villages, fishermen mend fishing nets on their front porches, while the womenfolks sell tourment d'amour from wicker baskets. The local culture is heavily steeped in the ways of early settlers from Brittany, so this place is more like a village in northwestern France. You will simply adore staying at the Auberge Les Petits Saints (Check out petitssaints.com).


Carriacou, Grenada


Carriacou is a tiny 13-square-mile island, a short 22-minute hop by air from Grenada. There are no high-rise buildings on Carriacou. There is an unwritten law forbiding any buildings taller than the average palm tree. Carriacou culture is known for the unique blend of traditions passed down by both West African slaves and the early 19th-century Scottish settlers. Ritual "big drum" dances is a big part of daily life here. The local festivals include the Carriacou Regatta, in which sailors race in boats built according to old Irish and Scottish shipwrights' plans. Try staying at the Green Roof Inn, near Hillsborough, on the island's west coast. The rooms has wi-fi and great sea-view verandas (Check out greenroofinn.com).


Cabrera, Dominican Republic


The Villa Castellamonte is probably the Dominican Republic's most beautiful, private beachfront villa. In fact, this exclusive enclave was voted as one of the top 10 in the Caribbean. This elegant grand 15,000-square-foot Tuscan-style villa sits on a majestic sea cliff soaring above a secluded white sandy beach and has a commanding views of surrounding luminous blue waters. You can relax here in style on the grand terraces, with great services from the bulters, gourmet chefs and maids. Or wade into the awesome swimming pool with its beautiful rockscape, sunning peninsula and swim-through tunnel. For the ultimate relaxation, sign up for spa treatments in a shady kiosk overlooking the gardens and the ocean.
