Favourite Caribbean beaches

Toronto Sun: "Carry-a-what? Carriacou (Carry-a-coo) is a tiny, southern island in the pretty Grenadine chain, a favourite stop for sailors touring the Caribbean, and a little-sister island to much larger Grenada.

Sandy Island is a Gilligan-like isle off Carriacou's coast consisting of little else but a white sand beach with lapping azure-coloured water.

Reaching the beach takes a bit of work, but whiling away an afternoon on Sandy Island beach is about as relaxing as a good whiling can get, so it's worth the effort. If you're vacationing on Grenada, hop on a morning ferryboat (The Osprey), which sails daily roundtrip to Carriacou. The hour's ride whips by about as quickly as the Pirates-of-the-Caribbean scenery."

Forbes   I recently spent a week in  Turks and Caicos , my first time out of the country since the pandemic hit. Like many Caribbean countries, Turks and Caicos rely  almost entirely on tourism  to power their economy, so they’re desperate for travelers to return. I’m happy to report that these beautiful beaches felt like an escape from the despair of this global pandemic, and here’s how they are keeping travelers safe.

Advocate|Call for LIAT support

Advocate : "According to Gonsalves, the issue of the increased cost of air travel and the fashioning of a sound air transport policy, are matters on which the regions people expect satisfactory answers and effective resolution. It cannot be right nor reasonable to expect the tax payers of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, to continue to subsidise the regional air travel of other member states, he stated. It is in my view an act of irresponsibility, for any government to stand askance from regional solutions to the practical issues of intra-regional air travel. More over, it is entirely contrary to the letter and spirit of the regional integration movement, for some governments to act subversively of the enterprise known as LIAT. "
