Kitesurfers have discovered what wave surfers have known: surf in Barbados. The most suitable time to visit is between December and June when the big breaks coincide with the best winds. The southern coast of the island is the leading kite site; Old trade winds guarantee a constant breeze from year to year. On Silver Rock Beach, beginners can gain momentum on the glassy waters inside the island’s barrier reef system, while experienced killers can catch surf brakes outside the reef.

Aquatic aficionados swear by the marine wonderland found under the waves around the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao). And an unforgettable way to get acquainted is by taking a night dive around the region’s vast coral reefs. The Ocean Encounter hosts various night dives, including “Fluorescent Night Dive”. And divers provided with unique “blue” UV lights and a yellow mask filter, which combined to create the effect of making fish glow in the dark.

Even more, particularly is an annual event that takes place in late September / early October. During which the marine life of the reef releases millions of spawned eggs, attracting crowds of multicoloured fishes. The best thing? The magical event coincides with the full moon.

The BVI is renowned as one of the most picturesque places in the Caribbean for yachting.

Make love The Offshore Sailing School operates out of Tortola and offers live-rider cruising courses on the Monohall and catamaran sailing boats.

Experience the tobacco fields of Cuba’s Valle de Viñales

The abundant attractions of Havana speak for themselves, but some visitors are beyond the charismatic capital. Those doing so are rewarded with some of the most breathtaking views of the Caribbean, such as the Valle de Viñales, a fertile valley located three hours’ drive west of Havana. The valley, known as the tobacco field, called Vegas, flows through the Mogotes — sheer-sided, conical limestone hills, which join together with the caves.

Consider joining a tour of Cuevas de Santo Tomás, Cuba’s most extensive cave system, which includes a half-mile stretch for visitors and includes stalagmites and stalactites, underground pools and intriguing rock formations.

Swim with pigs in The Bahamas

You have seen iconic photos on social media; Isn’t this the time when you surrender to the Creed of Pigs of the Caribbean? Porcine stars reside on Big Major Kei, a deserted island in Exuma, south-east of Nassau.
