  • Photo Of The Day: Sugar-Sweet Sands of St. Kitts
    Sweet, Sweet St. Kitts. More so than most anywhere in the Caribbean, St. Kitts is synonymous with sweet, the association a hold-over from the island’s prodigious history of sugar production, extending from the earliest days of European colonization up until the last sugar mill was closed in 2005. Sugar may not be king in St. Kitts anymore, but as the image above clearly illustrates, there’s still plenty that’s sweet about this place, especially for uncommon beach lovers. One size, or color, does not fit all when it comes to St. Kitts’ beaches. Silver-grey sands line the island’s northwestern shores near Mount Liamuiga, St. The post Photo Of The Day: Sugar-Sweet Sands of St. Kitts appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Uncommon Envy: Waiting 3 Long Years For The Best View in St. Kitts
    In the fun few years since we birthed Uncommon Caribbean, my brother and UC partner, Patrick, has enjoyed quite the run of super-posh villas and hotels across the region. Tequila Sunrise Villa in Anguilla; Jade Mountain in St. Lucia; Chabil Mar, Belize; The Residences by Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos ?? if the digs are ultra-luxurious and uncommon, then he’s likely to have experienced ’em. Sometimes he gets to do this with friends. Often his family tags along. The one person always missing… ME! Yeah, we don’t get to travel together very often. When we do, though, luxury is NEVER on the itinerary. The post Uncommon Envy: Waiting 3 Long Years For The Best View in St. Kitts appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Echoes of Tobago on Baby Beach, Aruba
    If you’e ever been to No Man’s Land, or seen this, then you might think I snapped this photo in Tobago. As I’ve noted before, the weathered tangle of wood that sits at the water’s edge in the pristine natural surrounds separating Tobago’s Bon Accord Lagoon with the sea presents one of the top photo-op’s in Trinidad’s sister island. These particular faded trees by the sea, though, sits about 600 miles west of Tobago… in Aruba. Specifically, you can find it along the tranquil shores of Baby Beach at the far southeastern tip of Aruba. Tobago echoes in Aruba | SBPR Though not nearly as wide or stunningly beautiful as the sands we enjoyed at Bucuti and Tara on Eagle Beach, Baby Beach is still well worth checking out for uncommon travelers.

  • Travel Forward (and Back) In Time From The Shores of Southeastern St. Kitts
    If you’ve ever heard of St. Kitts, or were lucky enough to make a stop here, even if just for a few hours, then you very likely know of the island’s volcanic origins, manifested most dramatically in majestic Mount Liamuiga. Formerly known as Mount Misery for reasons I can’t wait to understand first hand, hopefully before the end of 2017, Liamuiga is the highest point in St. Kitts, towering a good 3,792 feet above all that makes St. Kitts so sweet. It’s not the only volcano here, though… St. Kitts’ 68 square miles is actually comprised of a series of overlapping volcanic centers stretching along the Lesser Antilles Volcanic Arc.

  • Orient Beach, Saint Martin Just After Irma
    It’s a little strange seeing it this way… Orient Beach, the famed (and infamous) stretch of sand and miraculous Caribbean Sea set on the French Side of St. Martin, completely devoid of chaise lounges, Hobie Cats, umbrellas, and any/all other signs of beachy fun accoutrements.. Okay, maybe not 100% completely devoid… Good seats available on Orient Beach, French Side, St. Martin | Credit: Malaika Maxwell Still, you get the picture. These images, like the ones of Grand Case we shared earlier, were captured by our good friend and SXM resident, Malaika Maxwell, just a few weeks after Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc over St. The post Orient Beach, Saint Martin Just After Irma appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • See Things More Clearly in The Bahamas
    Clear. Your. Mind. Nothing allows us to unplug, de-stress, and unclutter our heads quite like escaping to the islands. If said escapes includes time in The Bahamas, all the more fitting… Sandy Bottom Somewhere in The Bahamas | Photo credit: Zach Stadler As illustrated brilliantly in these photos captured by UC fan/ace photographer Zach Stadler, it’s easy to see things more clearly here. Undersea Blues in The Bahamas | Photo credit: Zach Stadler No matter where you might roam in this singular country of 700+ islands, you’ll find gin-clear waters that are obviously intoxicating in their own special way… Check out more of Zach’s amazing undersea pics here, and be sure to follow is photo adventures on Instagram.

  • At The Baths in The BVI?s, One Month After Irma
    One month. For most of us, it doesn’t seem like very long. After all, time doesn’t necessarily only fly when you’re having fun. Modern life and its many attendant worries, demands, and distractions tends to speed our clocks and calendars along. This is not usually so in the BVI’s, as sublime and relaxing a string of islands as you’ll find anywhere along your travels. Here, time tends to the play the long game for visitors and locals alike. In the 30 days immediately following the passage of Hurricane Irma, though, things were a bit different. The rugged slog toward recovery made the month seem especially long for BVI friends I’ve been in touch with, each day attaching new challenges to what once were the simplest of daily tasks.

  • Leap Into The Refreshing Depths of Owl?s Hole, Grand Bahama Island
    I’ve said it before and I’m likely to say it again: I much prefer beaches to pools… assuming, of course, that the pool in question isn’t located at the bottom of a naturally formed, open-air cave like the one UC friend Bob Davies promised to show me at Owl’s Hole on a recent trip to Grand Bahama Island. The promise of a perfect pool. Bob picked me up bright and early. The trek to Owl’s Hole began with a drive out of Freeport and along Grand Bahama Highway through the beautiful Caribbean pine expanse of the island’s interior. The perfect Bahamas sun was pouring down warmth, riddims danced out of the radio, and just the right amount of breeze filled the cab with the natural perfume of the pines.

  • Haunted Caribbean: Ghostly Lovers of Fort Napoleon, Guadeloupe
    Many are the examples of the thin line between love and horror throughout history. It’s like you can’t have one without the other, especially when an ancient fortress set high atop a cliff is involved. That’s exactly what I found at Fort Napoleon (est. 1867), the French military stronghold that crowns Mt. Mire (elevation: 351 feet) on the tiny island of Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe. As noted here, Fort Napoleon never got to test its mettle in battle. Still, death was no stranger here. Well, at least two alleged deaths went down here, according to a legend detailed within the tidy museum housed inside the fort.
