Contemplating a Caribbean wedding? Here are the top spots to tie the knot
Destination weddings are as popular as ever and whatever the season, the Caribbean seems to be one of the most popular choices. However, with so many islands to choose from, each with their own distinct character, it can be tricky to find your perfect destination. This is why CV Villas has revealed the best Caribbean islands for couples, whatever your interests. From couples with an adventurous spirit to those looking for the best Instagram pictures, you can easily find the island that will suit you best for your big day.
For couples looking for a slice of luxury: Mustique
With Tommy Hilfiger’s daughter Ally recently getting married on this magical island and Kate and Wills being regular visitors, Mustique is arguably the most exclusive of all the Caribbean islands. With its white sandy beaches, decadent parties and the chance to hobnob with the rich and famous, it’s the go-to place for couples looking for a luxurious and glittering backdrop for their wedding.
For outdoorsy couples: Barbados
More than just lazing of the beach, Barbados is a hub for hiking, surfing and cycling. The island’s varied terrain of waterfalls, caves and even a national park mean that lovers of the outdoors can fill their time with a different adventurous activity every day. The range of scenery can also make for some fabulous wedding photos as well.
For foodie couples: Jamaica
When you think of the Caribbean you may not immediately think of its cuisine, but the region is becoming a mecca for foodies - with Jamaica being at the heart of the scene. So, if your wedding food is one of your top priorities, then Jamaica would be the ideal choice. The home of jerk spices, scotch bonnets and a plethora of exotic fruits, the island is great for those with adventurous taste buds.
For Instagram-loving coupes: British Virgin Islands
The perfectly turquoise waters of the British Virgin Islands make for stunningly romantic Instagram shots, perfect for social media savvy couples. On any of the many islands’ picture-perfect beaches you and your partner can nail an idyllic shot, featuring coconut palms, lush sands and sail boats in the distance. If you’re looking for jaw-dropping sunsets as a backdrop to your big day, then head to Bananakeet on the island of Tortola.
For couples that love the ocean: Grenada
If you and your partner love nothing more than the exploring the ocean, then there a number of Caribbean islands to choose from that offer some of the world’s best snorkelling and diving. The island of Grenada is well-known for its shipwrecks, coral-encrusted canyons and awe-inspiring underwater scenery. For those who love the water, what could be better after your big day than taking in the Caribbean’s majestic underwater world?
For chilled couples: Nevis
If you want nothing more from your destination wedding than kicking back and truly relaxing, then Nevis is the island for you. Reportedly with more monkeys than people and a distinct lack of big resorts, there is a quiet and chilled feel that gives the whole island an authentic atmosphere. With undeveloped spots all over the island, it’s a great place for your and the partner to just enjoy each other’s company in the most beautiful of settings.
Couples who love the nightlife: St Kitts
In true Caribbean style, most nightlife in the region consists of beach parties under the stars. Famed for its intoxicating mix of live music, long drinks and lively beach bars, St Kitts is must-visit for couples looking to let their hair down before, during and after their wedding. From glitzy beach clubs to bar shacks by the waterfront, there’s a place for you whatever your taste.
