As travel was abruptly put on hold earlier this year, recent signs of reopenings and restrictions lifting around the world have given sun chasers everywhere a sign of hope that lounging on a white sandy beach while looking out at shimmering turquoise water may not be too far off.

Specifically, the Caribbean islands have laid out their plans for a “new normal” among locals as well as welcoming back visitors after being forced to take a pause as the coronavirus pandemic swept across the globe.

In the interim, many islands — like Aruba and Saint Lucia — took the virtual alternative and provided dreamy beach island vibes online, but we all know that nothing can replace the real thing. Below is each island’s reopening plan along with the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus each has recorded since the beginning of the outbreak, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Anguilla

Number of cases: 3

The British overseas territory has closed its #Anguilla airport and ports until at least June 30, according to the UK government. For locals, however, restrictions started to lift on April 30, allowing up to 25 people to gather while practicing social distancing, according to the COVID-19 guidelines.

The island, which has been named the best in the Caribbean by Travel + Leisure readers several years in a row, is known for its scenic hiking, sea turtles, and bird life.

Antigua and Barbuda

Number of cases: 26

#Antigua and #Barbuda opened its borders on June 1 in a phased plan that includes reopening the international airport, according to the government. Visitors are required to wear a mask in all public places. Additionally, visitors must take a COVID-19 test 48 hours prior to arrival and be able to present documentation of negative results. If they’re unable to do so they must pay for a test locally or agree to quarantine at a hotel for 14 days.

This follows the islands’ mitigation efforts in which residents were told not to leave home except for food and emergency supplies, and beaches were closed.

Aruba

#Aruba, a territory of the #Netherlands, expects to reopen its borders between June 15 and July 1, according to the Aruba Tourism Authority. On May 25, the island allowed outdoor restaurants to reopen but remains under a nightly curfew.

Aruba has implemented a cleaning and hygiene certification program for tourism-related businesses to reassure tourists when they do return. This includes extra cleaning during tasks like handling luggage as well as plexiglass barriers at desks and the use of digital keys.

In the meantime, the island is offering a dose of wanderlust from home with a virtual tour, including a 30-minute calming video of the sights and sounds of Aruba.

Bahamas

Number of cases: Just over 100

The #Bahamas hopes to reopen to commercial travel on July 1, according to the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation, with visitors only able to go to the islands where COVID-19 has been contained (including Cat Island and Abaco). Currently, international arrivals are restricted and many resorts and hotels are closed to international travelers.

On June 2, the Bahamas allowed non-essential storefront businesses to open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on certain islands, including Grand Bahama, as part of Phase 3 of its reopening plan, according to the Office of the Prime Minister. Restaurants, however, are still limited to curbside pickup and delivery, and other facilities remain closed.

Barbados

Number of cases: 92

#Barbados requires all arriving passengers to quarantine for 14 days, according to the U.S. Embassy in Barbados.

On June 1, the island reopened retailers, parks, and dining in restaurants, according to the Barbados Government Information Service. A day later, the island opened beaches from 5 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., but picnicking was still banned. Businesses that open are required to implement health protocols, including temperature checks.

Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba

Number of cases: 7

Borders for the #Dutch islands are currently closed, and the #Bonaire airport will remain closed through at least June 15. On #SintEustatius, restaurants and bars were allowed to reopen with capacity restrictions on May 29, and hotels can open but leisure flights are still restricted. #Saba’s borders remain closed as well, but the island lifted its “lock-down” order on May 11, according to the U.S. Consulate General in #Curacao.

The British Virgin Islands

Number of cases: 8

The #British overseas territory will reopen its borders in June for returning residents and citizens who will each be subject to a 14-day quarantine, according to the Government of the #Virgin Islands. The islands have a nightly curfew, according to the UK government. Beaches, however, are open from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Cayman Islands

Number of cases: 150

Airports in the #Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory, will remain closed for international leisure and non-essential travel until at least Sept. 1, according to the Cayman Islands government. Seaports will remain shut as well.

Currently, the island has a strict nightly curfew. Beach access is limited to certain days, based on the letter of people’s last names, and exercise is limited to groups of two people for up to two hours. People have to wear face masks in public places, and shopping at supermarkets is staggered based on people’s last names.

Cuba

Cuba

Number of cases: Just under 3,000

#Cuba has closed its airport until at least June 30, according to the U.S. Embassy in Havana. Southwest Airlines had initially said it planned to start flying from Tampa to Havana on June 7, but the airport will still be closed. In addition, American Airlines has said it will start operating flights to the island on July 7, The Miami Herald reported.

While U.S. citizens are not allowed to travel to Cuba for tourism, they are allowed to legally travel there under several criteria, including “Support for the Cuban People,” which requires that travelers have a “full-time schedule” of activities that “enhance contact with the Cuban people, support civil society in Cuba, or promote the Cuban people’s independence from Cuban authorities.”

Curaçao

Number of cases: 20

The #Curaçao International Airport is closed to arriving passengers, according to The Curaçao Tourist Board. Additionally, while Curaçao, a territory of the Netherlands, has lifted its “Shelter in Place” order, the island still has a nightly curfew. Restaurants have reopened for dine-in, but groups larger than 25 people are not allowed.

Dominica

Number of cases: 18

#Dominica has closed its borders to commercial and private flights or boats, according to the U.S. Embassy in Barbados. The country also has a curfew in place at night.

Dominican Republic

Number of cases: More than 17,700

The #DominicanRepublic has closed its borders to land, sea, or air arrivals, according to the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism. Additionally, masks are required in all public places and a curfew is in place at night, according to the U.S. embassy there.

Grenada

Number of cases: 23

#Grenada is looking at June 30 as a possible date for re-opening its borders, according to its prime minister. In order to do so, he said procedures have to be in place, including ensuring hotels have sanitation protocols. Charter flights, however, may resume earlier than that.

Grenada remains under a state of emergency, according to NOW Grenada, but beaches are accessible during morning hours.

Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe

Number of cases: 162

The quarantine on the #French island was lifted on May 11, the #Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board shared with Travel + Leisure, but the island still remains closed to tourism.

In the meantime, you can virtually dive into the sights and sounds of Guadeloupe through the tourism board’s dreamy Instagram stories.

Haiti

Number of cases: More than 2,200

On June 2, Airlines was authorized to fly from Port au Prince to Fort Lauderdale, according to the U.S. Embassy in #Haiti, which added it was unaware of “any flights from Haiti to the United States after June 02 or if any flights will be authorized in the future.”

In March, the country shut its land border with the Dominican Republic and suspended flights from several areas, including Europe and Canada, according to the Miami Herald. There is a nightly curfew in place.

Jamaica

Puerto Rico

Number of cases: More than 3,900

Order in Place: #PuertoRico started reopening businesses and public areas like beaches for exercise and restaurants with capacity restrictions on May 26. While the island’s phased reopening has started, a nightly curfew remains in effect and face masks are mandatory in public.

All visitors to the island may be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, regardless of symptoms and all commercial flights are being diverted to San Juan, according to Discover Puerto Rico. Rapid COVID-19 testing is also being offered there. Additionally, hotels on the island remain open, but amenities like pools are closed.

St. Barthélemy

Number of cases: 6

This island, commonly known as #StBarts, had a deconfinement plan in place from May 11 to June 1, which allowed people to be in public spaces if social distancing was observed, according to the U.S. Embassy in Barbados.

But if you can’t get to the beautiful island right now, you can feel like you’re there with a creative Zoom background (just don’t forget a glass of French wine to go with it).

St. Kitts and Nevis

Number of cases: 15

The border of #SaintKitts and Nevis is currently closed to international travel, according to the Prime Minister.

Additionally, the island has a nightly curfew and while residents can check out the beach, they have to do so during early morning weekday hours only, according to the U.S. Embassy in Barbados. Face masks are required in public areas.

Sint Maarten

Number of cases: 77

 The #Dutch territory is currently closed to tourism and is “very much dependent on the health situation of other countries COVID-19 to be under control before we can feel comfortable opening our borders to the world and traveling Public,” according to the Prime Minister.

On May 11, #SintMaarten lifted its “shelter-in-place” order, according to the U.S. Consulate General in Curacao, but a nightly curfew remains in effect.

St. Lucia

Visitors will also have to wear face masks and health authorities could conduct temperature checks on arriving passengers. In addition, the island is requiring hotels to apply for a COVID-19 certificate from the government that addresses several safety protocols like cleaning measures and enforcing social distancing.

Businesses on Saint Lucia have been allowed to reopen, but they must have protocols in place for social distancing and disinfecting surfaces.

And if you can’t get there immediately, you can virtually escape to the islandthrough an Instagram mini-series.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Number of cases: 26

While #SaintVincent and the #Grenadines’ airport remains open, there are no commercial flights, according to the U.S. Embassy in Barbados. All people arriving from several countries, including the U.S., are subject to a 14-day quarantine.

Trinidad and Tobago

#CaribbeanIslandsVacations #FriendsTravelWestHollywoodCa90069 #JessKalinowsky JESS@FriendsTravel.com

When you are dreaming of a vacation made up of palm trees, white-sand beaches, and turquoise waters, look no further than the Southern Caribbean islands. Located south of the Dominican Republic, these islands consists of exclusive and exotic destinations that appeal to any type of traveler.

The Southern Caribbean is made up of the islands of #Aruba, #Bonaire, #Curaçao, #Barbados, #StLucia, #Grenada, #StVincent and the #Grenadines, #Dominica, and #Martinique.

The ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao) are a popular family destination with a variety of restaurants, bars, and hotels. Other islands, such as Grenada and Dominica, are full of national parks, rainforests, and outdoor adventures.

One of the greatest draws of the Southern Caribbean region is that most of its islands fall outside of the hurricane belt in the Caribbean, so you will likely avoid a major storm during your vacation.

These are some of the best Southern Caribbean islands to visit during your next getaway.

Aruba

Beautiful aerial view of white beach in Aruba

Aruba

Considered the sunniest island in the Caribbean, Aruba is the perfect place to visit year round, as it has the least amount of rainy days on average than any of the other surrounding islands.

Known for its mix of sandy stretches of coastline near #Oranjestad, Aruba also has plenty of natural wonders to explore, like rock pools, caves, and volcanic lava formations.

Bonaire

One of the main attractions of Bonaire is the Bonaire National Marine Park, a treasure trove for scuba divers who are interested in exploring one of the world’s largest reef ecosystems.

If you don’t have your scuba certification, experience the wonders of the park by snorkeling, booking a boat tour, and engaging in other fun water activities by the reef.

White sand Te Amo Beach in Bonaire

Te Amo Beach, Bonaire

You can also cycle along the coastline, spend a relaxing day on Te Amo Beach (a.k.a. “I Love You” Beach), windsurf at Lac Bay, or spot bright pink flamingos (the island’s official bird) while enjoying lunch by the shore.

Curaçao

Colorful buildings of Willemstad, Curacao at night

Willemstad, Curacao

Stroll along the colorful, #Dutch colonial-style buildings that line the #Handelskade waterfront and visit the Willemstad city center (a #UNESCO World Heritage Site) on a vacation to Curaçao.

Adventurers will want to step inside the island’s Hato Caves and marvel at its limestone formations, while animal lovers won’t want to miss visiting one of the island’s 30 aquariums, where you’ll be able to interact with sea lions, swim with stingrays and dolphins, and even feed sharks–if you dare!

Don’t forget to cap off the day with a stop at a local distillery and try a glass of the island’s famous blue Curaçao liqueur, too.

Barbados

Promenade in Bridgetown, Barbados, Southern Caribbean Islands

Bridgetown, Barbados

If you are a rum fan, you will especially enjoy Bridgetown, Barbados, home to the world’s oldest rum distillery. Learn all about the island’s signature liquor on a tour and tasting at Mount Gay Visitors Centre, which has been distilling rum for over 300 years.

When you are looking for a little more activity, take a catamaran out to shore and swim with leatherback turtles in the ocean, or schedule a snorkeling session through a sunken shipwreck. Of course, no one will judge you if you choose to simply enjoy a rum punch while lounging on one of Bridgetown’s beautiful beaches, either.

St. Lucia

The lush green landscape of St. Lucia is distinguished by the Pitons, two impressive volcanic peaks that provide a dramatic backdrop for the entire island. When you visit Castries, the island’s capital, you will find plenty of outdoor adventures to enjoy, like hiking the Piton mountains or driving by an active volcano.

Water flowing on rocks in Sulphur Springs, St. Lucia

Sulphur Springs, St. Lucia

When you are seeking a little more R&R, spend a day relaxing at the luxurious Sugar Beach or take a mud bath at Sulphur Springs, where all of your worries will melt away in one of their therapeutic sulfuric pools. Take the kids to Splash Island, where there are plenty of slides and fun water attractions to keep them busy.

Grenada

You will know you are in Grenada the second you step foot on the island and take a whiff of its scented air. Nicknamed “Spice Island,” Grenada’s major exports include aromatic cloves, ginger, and cocoa, which you can enjoy and learn more about during a spice tour in St. George’s, the island’s major port city.

Beautiful Annandale Falls flowing smoothly in Grenada

Annandale Falls, Grenada

Take a break from swimming in the ocean and head to Annandale Falls, where you can admire the 30-foot high waterfalls and even jump off from the top. Journey down the island’s Grand Etang Rainforest Reserve while lying on a river tube.

Dominica

Emerald Falls surrounded by lush greenery in Dominica

Emerald Falls, Dominica

There is a reason why Dominica is called “Nature Island”. With over 300 waterfalls, tropical forests, mountains, and hot springs, this is the place to go if you are looking for some quality ecotourism.

In the city of Roseau, you can choose any variety of adventures, including hiking up to Boiling Lake, the world’s second-largest hot spring; snorkeling in Champagne Reef, where you’ll be surrounded by fizzy bubbles during your dive; and swimming in the crystal waters of Emerald Pool inside Morne Trois Pitons National Park.

Martinique

Colorful houses in Fort-de-France, Martinique with mountain backdrop

Fort-de-France, Martinique

In Fort-de-France, Martinique, relax on the island’s serene beaches or discover the magic of its tropical rainforest. As the largest city in the French West Indies, Fort-de-France is also one of the best places to try French and Creole cuisine in the Caribbean, and a glass of local rum, too.

History buffs will be thrilled to visit the island’s plantations and military forts, while the sportier types can kayak through mangrove bays.

St. Vincent

Wooden arch in Grenadines Botanic Gardens, St. Vincent

Grenadines Botanic Gardens, St. Vincent

As one of the more underrated islands of the region, St. Vincent possesses all the charm of the Caribbean.

When you visit the capital of Kingstown, you’ll be able to experience the life of a pirate as you board a schooner or catamaran and sail along the coast of the island, spend some quiet time admiring the serene St. Vincent Botanical Gardens, or lay out on one of the island’s unique black-sand beaches.

Palm Island Resort

 

JESS@FriendsTravel.com Reservations 24/7/365

Privacy reigns at this exclusive island resort in the Caribbean archipelago of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where the 135-acre property is the setting for just 43 guest rooms and cottages. All have verandas for taking in the sea and lush garden views, cheerful tropical décor (lots of bamboo, wicker, and bright splashy prints), and woven rattan ceilings. (There’s air-conditioning, but you’ll likely prefer to let the breeze in through the louvered windows.) The beach, with its talcum-soft sand and turquoise shallows, is postcard-perfect, and the massive free-form swimming pool—waterfall-fed and surrounded by boulders (and servers bearing cocktails)—is no slouch, either.

Take a tour of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean, including natural wonders, underwater sites, and some of the world’s dreamiest hotels.
