LONDON, July 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Caribbean is a firm favourite as a Virgin Holidays destination, which comes as no surprise with everything on offer. With dazzling beaches, endless watersports and quality golf the Caribbean attracts.

Affectionately known as 'Little England', Barbados is a charming island with English traditions such as the classic afternoon tea or a day at the races with the added bonus of glorious weather! Take advantage of the warm waters and explore stunning coral gardens by snorkelling or scuba diving. The Sea Breeze hotel Barbados ( os/sea_breeze_beach_hotel/) unsuprisingly has a beachfront location just five minutes away from the lively St Lawrence Gap. Turtle Beach Resort ( dos/turtle_beach_resort/) is another Barbados gem with a brilliant location close to the airport and St Lawrence Gap. The resort is aptly named after the turtles that lay eggs on the pristine beach in May and June, a wonderful sight to behold.

Grenada is a beautiful island that is largely forgotten due to its more developed neighbours. Grenadian by Rex Resorts ( a/grenadian_by_rex_resorts_all_inclusive/) is a great base from which to explore the lush interior of the island including Etang National Park, home to the spectacular Concord Falls, monkeys and exotic birds.

For an exciting Afro-latin vibe the Caribbean's largest island, Cuba is the place to go. Cuba not only offers the gorgeous beaches, snorkelling and the chance to swim with dolphins but a truly unique cultural experience. Superclubs Breezes Jibacoa ( a/grenadian_by_rex_resorts_all_inclusive/) is a large resort in a picturesque location which boasts five bars, four restaurants and nightly evening entertainment.

Antigua is a classic paradise island and St James Beach Club Antigua ( ua/the_beach_club/) is a brilliant base from which to enjoy the laid back vibe. The resort owns a 100-acre site with two beaches, ample sports facilities, two beautiful restaurants and the enchanting Nelson's Dockyard is a mere five minutes away.
