The Caribbean is known for its abundance of beautiful beaches, but these six destinations are renowned for being the best of the best.
According to TripAdvisor's 2023 Travelers' Choice Awards, these are travelers' favorite beaches in the Caribbean for a picture-perfect tropical getaway.
If you're looking for a slice of Caribbean paradise, check out these six stunning beaches:
1. Eagle Beach (Aruba)
Part of the ABC Islands in the southern Caribbean, Aruba is known as “One Happy Island” due to its year-round sunny weather and warm, friendly locals.
It's also known for having some of the most picturesque beaches in the Caribbean.
Eagle Beach in Aruba won the coveted top spot for the best beaches in the Caribbean in 2023, thanks to its tranquil and pristine clear waters and white sandy shores stretching as far as the eye can see.
This is the perfect beach to relax and bask in the warm sun or go for a dip in the equally warm water.
2. Grace Bay Beach (Turks and Caicos)
Next up on the list of best beaches in the Caribbean is Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos.
Located on the island of Providenciales in this Caribbean island chain, Grace Bay Beach is known for being one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
With clear, calm water ranging from shades of azure to turquoise and sugar-white sand beaches, Grace Bay Beach is the kind of place you dream of when you think of the Caribbean.
3. Varadero Beach (Cuba)
Cuba may not be the first place you think of when you consider a Caribbean getaway, but this country is home to stunning beaches like Varadero Beach.
In addition to beaches, Cuba is also a great cultural destination, with the vibrant and colorful city of Havana topping the list of things to do. The quaint countryside region of Viñales is also worth visiting on a trip to Cuba.
And, of course, you can cool off at Varadero Beach to beat the heat. This award-winning beach is known for having crystal-clear water and sandy white shores.
4. Seven Mile Beach (Cayman Islands)
Another contender for the best beaches in the Caribbean is Seven Mile Beach in the Cayman Islands.
Located on Grand Cayman, Seven Mile Beach is aptly named because, as you can probably guess, it stretches on for seven miles of unbelievably beautiful Caribbean shoreline.
Seven Mile Beach is known for its white sand beaches and clear waters, which are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
5. Magens Bay (U.S. Virgin Islands)
Located in the U.S. Virgin Islands on the island of St. Thomas, Magens Bay is another one of the best beaches in the Caribbean.
American travelers don't even need a passport to visit the U.S. Virgin Islands, which are made up of three large islands and more than 50 smaller islets and cays.
Magens Bay is one of the best beaches in the Caribbean because of its clear blue water and great snorkeling. Lush green foliage rises up around this bay, giving it even more of a look of tropical paradise.
6. Cinnamon Bay (U.S. Virgin Islands)
Finally, another contender on the list of the best beaches in the Caribbean also comes from the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Cinnamon Bay is located on the island of St. John and is unique because the beach is fully contained within the Virgin Islands National Park.
If you're looking for a truly pristine and untouched Caribbean beach, you'll find it in Cinnamon Bay. This beach is known for its beautiful clear waters where you can go snorkeling and swimming.
