  • Casting Off For Buccoo Reef, Tobago
    Many are the excursion boats for hire in the Crown Point area of Tobago that can get you up and close and personal with the teeming undersea environs of Buccoo Reef, the sexy and restorative wonders of Nylon Pool, and the somewhat secluded sun-kissed shores in and around No Man’s Land. We’ve shared our experiences with our prime choice for such fun here, here, and here. No matter who you choose, though, the trip out to these special spots always comes with the type of calm and serenity captured by Vimeo user Talib Ali in this video… Your Monthly Moment of Zen.You're reading Casting Off For Buccoo Reef, Tobago from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.

  • Uncommon Photo-Op: En Route to Ilet-Oscar, Martinique
    I’ve never much paid any real attention to the sights en route to Ilet-Oscar, the tiny islet situated off the Atlantic coast of Martinique where you can live a Robinson Crusoe-like rustic private island getaway for less than $200 per-night. I guess I’ve always been too excited about what’s to come. Previous visits had long informed my senses of Oscar’s laid-back wonder, its utter peace, serenity, and sublime Planteur’s Punch. They’d also informed my common sense for keeping my camera equipment high and dry. As noted previously, Ilet-Oscar and its neighboring sister islets combine with a long coral reef system to keep the waters here calm by Atlantic coast standards.You're reading Uncommon Photo-Op: En Route to Ilet-Oscar, Martinique from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.

  • Wish You Were Here: Bodysurfing in Barbados
    It’s still my favorite form of surfing, and not just because I’ve sucked at the more tradition version we all know and love. Bodysurfing requires no board, of course. It’s just you and the waves, your swimming skills and good timing (and a steady stream of swells of the size and variety usually found along the Maxwell Coast section of Christ Church, Barbados) all that’s required to fill an afternoon with a few cheap and memorable thrills.   *Photo credit: Flickr user Ben Ramirez.

  • Historic, Welcoming Philipsburg Courthouse, St. Maarten
    It’s easy to come away from the Front Street area of Philipsburg without gaining much, if any, sense of St. Maarten’s history. This is Ground Zero for the cruise ship hordes that descend upon the capital of the Dutch Side most every day, the narrow streets and modest beachfront routinely choked with crowds bent on partying, shopping, and sunning, not necessarily in that order. My favorite port-of-call this is not. On the beach in Philipsburg, St. Maarten | SBPR Here, though, as everywhere in the Caribbean, the uncommon can be found and enjoyed. Take the stately old courthouse pictured above, for instance… Like the iconic Guavaberry Emporium just a few blocks away, the courthouse sticks out among a sea of staid retail storefronts; its allure undeniable for a history buff like me.You're reading Historic, Welcoming Philipsburg Courthouse, St. Maarten from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.

  • Playing Hide and Seek With Hog Bay Beach, Bermuda
    Could there be a more perfect beach anywhere than Hog Bay, Bermuda? From what we’ve read/heard, not likely. Located within the 32-acre unspoiled nature preserve of Hog Bay Park in Sandy’s Parish at the far western end of Bermuda, Hog Bay Beach arrests you with its pristine beauty. Most every beach in Bermuda does that, though. The thing we really love about Hog Bay is its “hide and seek” seclusion. Like a lot of our favorite beaches, Hog Bay is not readily accessible. You have to hike a good bit over intermittently rocky, steep, and hilly terrain to get here. And, depending on when you do get here, there may not be any beach to enjoy.You're reading Playing Hide and Seek With Hog Bay Beach, Bermuda from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.

  • Wish You Were Here: Skirting The Shore in Aruba
    It may appear too close for boating comfort, but the steep drop off just beyond the shoreline of the sweet section of Eagle Beach directly in front of the Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort makes for a busy boat traffic spot. All throughout the day, sailors and jet-skiers parade atop these depths, hugging ever closer shore to shore in order to attract attention, customers. You’ll want to stay alert swimming here, or simply head around the bend to the left where water conditions are just as nice and absolutely devoid of traffic of any kind.

  • Puppy Love in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
    A warm and wonderfully familial feeling of welcome swept over me soon after checking into Ocean Club East on my last visit to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos a few months ago. I’d never set foot on the property before, but something about about the place, the people, the vibe just made me feel right at home from the moment I arrived. It’s the kind of place that entices you to settle in quickly, put your feet up, and just enjoy, as you would after coming home from work every night. Among the only things missing from my home away from home Ocean Club experience: my dog.You're reading Puppy Love in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.

  • Windy Wavy Sunset at Rum Point, Grand Cayman
    The bar and surrounding sandy shores at Rum Point may be a bit crowded when you stop in here near sunset while adventuring around Grand Cayman, throngs of toned and tanned locals and visitors soaking in the last few rays of sunlight along with a mud slide or two. Head down the jetty pictured above for a little breezy peace and serenity… Your monthly moment of zen.

  • Photo Of The Day: No Campaigning Beyond This Point
    It ends today. And not a moment too soon, I imagine, for most of America. It will be hard for a lot of us to forget all the ugliness of the 2016 Presidential Election here in the U.S. ? to repair long-cherished friendships severed in the absence of civil discourse; to move forward. Personally, for me, the beach has always provided the perfect spot for healing of any/all kinds. So, I’m spending part of this Election Day sitting in this chair staring at the sea and hoping for the best. Here’s hoping that the day’s results bring similarly salubrious results for you… You're reading Photo Of The Day: No Campaigning Beyond This Point from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.You're reading Photo Of The Day: No Campaigning Beyond This Point from Uncommon Caribbean - The Insider's Caribbean Travel Blog.

  • Finding Your Own Private Paradise in Bimini, The Bahamas
    Two main islands comprise the district of Bimini, the westernmost portion of The Bahamas lying a mere 50 miles from Miami. North Bimini and South Bimini each offer their own special brand of uniquely Bahamian fun, curiosities, and uncommon adventures. For us, though, there’s nothing quite like getting out on the water here and hopping around Bimini’s seemingly endless array of islets, rocks, and sandbars in search of our own private paradise. More on all that Bimini has to offer here.   *Photo credit: Flickr user Matt Kieffer.
