There can be few more evocative-sounding destinations than those in the Caribbean. Antigua, Mustique, St Lucia, Turks & Caicos – they all have wonderful names and characters to match.

Many of them have been visited by our expert consultants – all of them have been carefully chosen with the perfect luxury Caribbean honeymoon in mind. Click on them to discover more. When to go: Year round, but best between December and March. The hurricane season is from August to October.
