Ready to plan a trip filled with beautiful beaches, year-round outdoor activities, and a chance to spend time with the one you love? If you and your partner need an escape just the two of you, we have four big ideas to share. Here are our favorite Caribbean vacations for couples.
Where to Stay: Hilton Grand Vacations at The Crane
If you are searching for a combination of white sand beaches, cultural sites, and incredible cuisine, travel to the east side of the Caribbean to the historic island of Barbados. This charming Caribbean island in the West Indies might be small in size, but provides a long list of things to do along its shores.
Hilton Grand Vacations at The Crane is the perfect resort to consider when planning Caribbean getaways for couples. Founded as the first hotel in Barbados in 1887, The Crane offers all the comforts of home. It’s nestled on 40 sprawling acres of beachfront property featuring a treasure trove of amenities for the ultimate beach lover’s vacation.
When you first arrive, book a couples massage in the Serenity Spa, followed by dinner at one of the resort’s seven restaurants and bars. At the resort, spend your vacation relaxing together in the cascading cliff-side pool complex. Or choose to walk through tranquil gardens, play a game or two of couples tennis, and enjoy a cocktail on the rooftop terrace. Off property, explore the island’s historic plantations, rum factories, Ragged Point Lighthouse, and even swim with resident turtles in the island’s welcoming waters.
Since you are researching Caribbean vacations for couples, we recommend a splurge on the Residences by the Sea condos at The Crane, offering ocean views of majestic Crane Beach.
