Discover the Beautiful World of the Caribbean Islands

by James Penn
Caribbean islands consist of the Caribbean Sea, its islands and the surrounding coasts. It is located southeast of North America, east of Central America and to the North West of South America. That was the geographical location of the Caribbean islands.

The area of Caribbean Sea consists of over 7000 islands with numerous reefs, and islets. It is mostly located on the Caribbean Plate. What we call West Indies is actually a collection of islands. It consists of Antilles which is itself differentiated into three parts-the Greater Antilles on the north, the Lesser Antilles on the south and the east and the Leeward Antilles. Other islands are the Bahamas to the northeast and Bermuda further north in the Atlantic Ocean.

In geo-political terms, West Indies is the "sub region" of North America and consists of 28 territories. These territories include sovereign states, overseas departments, and dependencies. In the past, it was a county named the Federation of the West Indies with about ten English speaking Caribbean nations.

And when it comes to Caribbean vacation, well there are very few other places in the world that could compete with it. The best thing about Caribbean vacation is that it has something for everyone's taste. So, if you are a water sport enthusiast or like hiking, swimming or diving or other such water sports, you would find Caribbean islands a never ending joy ride.

It is not for nothing that Caribbean islands are considered paradise on earth for tourists. Actually Caribbean islands offer you a whole lot of choices. Whether you seek fun and adventure or you seek seclusion and privacy, you can find some islands fitting the bill.

Caribbean Star marks final flight, transfers assets to LIAT

Advocate : "THE seven-year-old Caribbean Star operated its final flight yesterday, marking a takeover by competitor LIAT, in a buyout that Chairman, Jean Holder, describes as 'one of the most significant business deals in the history of the Caribbean' .
