Summer travel is in full swing and travelers are more than ready to lounge on sandy beaches, enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

The news is full of headlines about the influx of crowds in Europe this season, so Why not trade it for a different location this year? The Caribbean is a hotspot for travelers from the US, due to its proximity and somewhat affordable flight prices. (It’s also hard to say no to the friendly cultures, blue waters, and sandy beaches!)

Travel and Leisure has just launched its Awards to the best in the world asking its readers to share their opinions on experiences, locations and stays around the world.

The Caribbean Islands were specifically rated based on criteria including restaurants, friendliness, beaches, activities, and overall value. Here are this year’s winners!

St. Johns: US Virgin Islands

Imagine dolphins swimming alongside the ship and green sea turtles gracefully floating through the waters: St. Johns is ranked #3 on the Best Islands list – and it’s no secret why.

With Virgin Islands National Park spanning half the island, the smallest of the 3 Virgin Islands attracts hordes of nature enthusiasts year-round. Migratory birds can be found nesting in the shade of the forests, and thriving marine life lies beneath the oceans here.

Lush green mountains and impressive alcoves draw guests to the shores. You definitely don’t need to venture too far to meet some animals or find a relaxing spot on the beach.

Some of the landscapes you’ll see look like they’re straight out of a TV show. Maho Bay, Trunk Bay, and Cinnamon Bay are among the most popular places to visit, but there are also more remote areas if you’re looking for unspoilt beauty.
