It all begins with the beach. Sure, you love the food, the hotels and the culture in the Caribbean. But every journey starts with inspiration, and it always comes from that daydream of an afternoon spent on a beautiful shoreline, a moment of waves and palms and perfect sand.

Caribbean Journal recently published its list of the best Caribbean beaches — 25 of them! — to visit in 2019. The beaches celebrate diversity — from signature Caribbean beaches that are a must for any Caribbean aficionado to beaches that remain largely undiscovered by travelers to beaches that are just plain fun.
