Pink Sand Beach, Harbour Island, Bahamas
Harbour Island itself is a charming village with colourful little homes with white picket fences, full of friendly locals waving as you pass, and unforgettably delicious fresh seafood. When you walk down the sandy path and emerge at Pink Sand Beach, you feel like you’ve been transported to another planet. The sand is as pink as the name implies, the beach feels endless and you will never want to leave. This is HolidayPirates top tip for a beach in the Caribbean for 2018
Eagle Beach, Aruba
Aruba's widest beach is undoubtedly one of the Caribbean’s most spectacular. With blindingly white sand and warm waters it is a paradise of relaxation. HolidayPirates top Photo Tip - What makes the beach stand out from the other hundreds of beautiful white sand beaches in the Caribbean are the famous fofoti trees. Their angled, hanging style make for perfect shade, while their strange, tangled trunks are hypnotising. In 2017 it was voted by TripAdvisor as the 3rd best beach in the world!
Shoal Bay, Anguilla
Shaded by coconut trees, Shoal Bay Beach is often found at the top of the “world's best beaches lists” found online. The two-mile-long sandy beach can be discovered in its entirely by walking from one end to the other with your feet touching the gentle water. Shoal Bay is popular with families as many activities such as kayaking and diving possible, with an unforgettable reef just offshore that makes it a top snorkelling spot.
Tropic of Cancer Beach, Little Exuma, Bahamas
The longest beach on Little Exuma, Tropic of Cancer Beach (although also known as Pelican Beach) is named after the meridian line that defines the northern limit of the tropics, and while it's one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean, visitors can still be lucky enough to have the picturesque white sand all to themselves. HolidayPirates Expert Tip - This beach has everything one dreams of except for shade, bring an umbrella to protect your skin!
Grand Anse Beach, Grenada
Many a visitor to the Caribbean's Spice Island never part with the 2 miles of silky white sand and glimmering water known as Grand Anse Beach. Visitors and locals can relax and enjoy a stunning view of the capital, St George’s, or more active types can take advantage of the multiple water-sports on offer, as well as the numerous restaurants and beach bars.

Long Bay Beach, Turks and Caicos Islands
Long Bay is a lively three mile long beach on the southeast coast of Providenciales. The water is pristine with 1 metre depths going out hundreds of feet. As it is located on the southern Caicos Banks side of Providenciales, the beach does not have the larger ocean swell waves that the beaches on the other side of the island do. HolidayPirates expert tip - Long Bay is one of the most popular kiteboarding locations in the region. Dozens of kites can be seen flying on windy days. The spectacular water, combined with the clean sandy ocean bottom with such a shallow depth makes it much easier to learn as you will be able to stand without drifting down wind.
