I am not surprised that bdos has a couple of beaches on here
I've been to. 5 of the beaches on the list
I don't know what the criteria was but
Horseshoe beach is ok but not all dat
And these sound like popular beaches such as orient bay and seven mile - both nice beaches

Do u think the ones you've visited deserve " top 10"
Bermuda beaches are overrated to me.....they are nice beaches but ijs

I've never been to curaçao or Aruba
Best beach ever (for me)is the one in St. Thomas ... Kids loved the cayman beach..

Can't remember anything significant about the beach in Aruba because I was focused in how expensive everything was there

  • Bold = I've been
  • Bold and larger = Going in July
  • Bold and underlined = Might go sometime in the future


That article is biased to the islands. Also, Bermuda is NOT in the Caribbean. Many of the best Caribbean beaches aren't on islands or are in DR, Cuba, etc...

The following Caribbean beaches are better than pretty much any Trinidadian, Vincentian, Lucian or Dominica beach:

  • Hopkins, Belize
  • Placencia, Belize
  • Playa Blanca, Colombia
  • Playa Tayrona, Colombia
  • Beaches around Puerto Viejo and Cahuita in Costa Rica
  • Varadero, Cuba
  • Punta Cana, DR
  • Samana, DR
  • Punta Sal, Honduras
  • Akumal, Maroma, Tulum and Xpu Ha, Mexico

It's a true post. I think the article should be labeled "island beaches". Bermuda isn't Caribbean, Bathsheba is on the Atlantic Ocean and if you are talking about "Caribbean" then you have to include more than just islands.
