Prime Destinations for British Holidaymakers' Caribbean Holidays

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2010) - St Barts is arguably the most stylish, sophisticated and luxurious holiday destination in the Caribbean.

With a selection of fashion boutiques to rival the best in the world and a vibrant café lifestyle to enjoy, there can be little argument against St Barts' appeal. The island provides a wonderful setting for idyllic and enriching Caribbean holidays, and annually draws thousands from all over the world.

St Barts is an overseas collectivity of France, using the country's official currency and language. The island itself is small, only covering 8.1 square miles, but modern development has been done tactfully, blending seamlessly into the picturesque Caribbean backdrop.

The biggest hotel on the island has only 80 rooms and the airport is equally small, so visitors will be able to avoid crowds and congestion on their next Caribbean holiday in St Barts.

Another alternative for an ideal Caribbean holiday is Britain's oldest island colony, Bermuda. A trip to St George's is essential on every holiday to Bermuda as it was the first permanent settlement on the islands. When on the islands, it's handy to remember that the largest of the islands, Main Island, is sometimes referred to as Bermuda. Significantly, it claims to be the oldest continuously inhabited English town in the New World. The island enjoys a thriving economy, with finance and tourism being the two biggest contributing sectors.

Bermuda offers visitors 64 miles of pristine beaches on the 181 islands in the archipelago, which covers a total area of 20.6 square miles.

Caribbean holidays are a wonderful way to escape the cold UK winter and enjoy a warm, summery Christmas. The Caribbean offers tourists a wide selection of destinations that will cater for even the most discerning traveller's needs.
