The Best Secluded Shores of the Caribbean
The best strips of sand under the Caribbean sun are the ones less traveled. The ones away from the throngs of tourists and all-inclusives. Here are a few of my favorite secluded beaches throughout the West Indies.

Bathing, Beers and Beautiful Buck Island

Large arrow left

What’s one of my favorite things to do when I go home to St. Croix?

Literally beg one of my friends with a boat to have a Buck Island lime.

There’s no better way to spend the day than casting off, heading north for a few minutes, and weighing anchor at this protected paradise.

The water is warm and crystal clear. You can even go for a short hike if you get bored, but really this is just about limin’ strong. Knocking back some Greenies, floating around, reminiscing and letting the hours pass blissfully by.
