Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

It’s a new year, full of new goals, new aspirations, and new beginnings. Hopefully some of those goals are exploring the new Caribbean islands and diving into the rich culture of the region.

This week’s Caribbean Wrap Up highlights  Bonefishing on Andros, exploring culture of Grenada, the top 50 Caribbean restaurants, island hopping the Grenadines and more. I’m not a big fisherman, but I think fishing the shallows of Andros would be a grand experience. Quiet seclusion, cooler full of Kalik, blue water and a feisty fish–sounds like a hell of a time.

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

The 50 Best Caribbean Restaurants: Lots of people will tell you what a great meal is, especially in the age of the foodie. But you know what it is — it’s one you remember long past dessert. Maybe it’s because of the view of the ocean, or the seasoning of the fish, or the impeccable service. Our 2014 50 Best Restaurants guide aims to take you to places in the Caribbean where you won’t just have a great meal, you’ll have a memorable one.  –Story by Caribbean Journal

Spicing it up on fragrant Caribbean isle of Grenada: I started searching for the scent as soon as I landed at the Maurice Bishop International Airport. For many people, the fragrance is redolent of grandma’s kitchen during holiday cookie season, or of potpourri. For me, the blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, mace and cocoa smells of Grenada. -Story by NorthJersey.com

Island hopping in the Grenadines: St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a dreamy island country in the Lesser Antilles, Caribbean. It’s roughly divided into two, with the larger island of St Vincent home to the capital Kingstown, and the smaller, more remote islands of the Grenadines. Collectively, they total a chain of more than 32 islands and islets, many of which are uninhabited, giving you your own little slice of the Caribbean if you board a boat and get island hopping. –Story by weather2travel.com

Welcome To Sandy Island, Anguilla’s Tiny Niblet Of Total Paradise: Sandy Island is a quick boat ride from Anguilla’s Sandy Ground beach. This little landing is home to just three structures: an open-air gazebo, a restroom hut and a restaurant that serves what numerous visitors say is some of the best food (snapper, lobster and the like) that they’ve ever tasted. –Story by HuffingtonPost.com

Bone Fishing in the Caribbean, Andros Islands: Although tranquil Andros is one of the least visited of the Bahamas islands, it holds the unofficial title of “the Bonefish capital of the world” because of the abundance of shallow mangrove swamps and mud flats around its coastline, which are the ideal habitat for Bonefish. –Story by holiday-area.blogspot.nl

    Hi, Ryan. Happy 2015! Wishing you all the best for this New Year.
    Just a quick note to say we posted about a cool beach bar (run by a Rasta named Joe) on Carriacou, Grenada this week. It’s called Joe’s Banana Bar on Paradise Beach, and yes, it was a little bit of paradise.

    Cheers!
