The South Pacific and the Maldives are famous for their shallow clear waters and their glamorous overwater bungalows. The type where you can look through the floor when you’re sleeping and see Spotted Eagle Rays and any number of fish. This type of resort has, for the most part, been absent from the Caribbean. Why? I have no idea.

That all might be coming to an end though.

Find out which island may soon be getting an overwater bungalow style resort, take a drive along the North Shore of St. John, and find the best beach bars on Anguilla in this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up.

Cheers!
