Start dreaming up your next vacation to the tropics with these inspirational destinations perfect for a girlfriend getaway

Escape the doldrums with a Caribbean vacation that is sure to lift everyone’s spirits and create lasting memories. Relax on pristine white sand beaches, catch with friends over local cuisine, snorkel with colorful fish or charter a yacht for a multi-island cruise where you choose your own adventure. Below are a few suggestions of beautiful tropical islands ideal for soaking up the sun on a girlfriend getaway.

Antigua Fun in the Sun

This island has the best of both worlds with plenty of tourists and things to do as well as secluded private beaches. It is in the center of the Leeward Island archipelago and the official language is English. Due to the island’s central location in the archipelago, you can easily charter a yacht to the other islands in the chain such as St. Barts and St. Maarten. Many charter trips originate at Falmouth Harbor on the south side of the island. You can water ski and swim alongside the boat, and dock at pristine beaches and take a stroll in the surf. Taking a yacht charter is also a great way to get your snorkeling in. After all what is a trip to the tropics without observing the unique and colorful wildlife?

Bahamas Girlfriend Getaway

Speaking of wildlife, the hopping city of Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, is a great place to mix, mingle and explore nightlife. This is a perfect place to go out dancing with the girls. Enjoy tropical cocktails and island music at night, while during the day you can sleep in and then take your group to get a spa treatment at one of the many luxurious spas in Nassau. Groups can visit art galleries and the zoo, and make sure to visit the Clifton Heritage National Park. Your group can even rent scooters and explore the island using them as your fun transportation. For a convenient option, consider an all-inclusive resort like Sandals with beachfront rooms, a golf course, restaurants and a spa.

You can also take ferries to the neighboring islands like Vieques and have a once in a lifetime experience of kayaking and swimming in the bioluminescent bay at night, or ferry to the island of Culebra and experience one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Playa Flamenco. It will be a memory you and your girlfriends share for the rest of your lives.
