Caribbean Islands

It certainly is a specialist’s job trying to put together the perfect geographical description of the Caribbean islands. Extending from the eastern side of the Mexican Gulf just below the Straits of Florida to the west side of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean region is a group of several island nations that play host to thousands of visitors and tourists from across the globe, all year long. The Caribbean Sea engulfs these islands, and is itself land bound on the east and south sides by the lands of Mexico and Central/Southern America. 
To make the understanding of the precise geography of Caribbean islands, they are categorized in three broad classes. Really, there is no other better alternative to cover the 7000 small and large Caribbean islands. The islands of Bahamas sit like a crown atop the Caribbean islands, on the northern side of the Caribbean Sea. It might even come as a surprise for some to know that Bahamas actually is a group of as many as 3000 unique islands and reefs. Bahamas islands are regarded as heavenly tourist destinations by even the most demanding of travel review magazines and websites. The overwhelming beauty of these islands is unmatched in stature; no wonders even the more inaccessible of these islands are thronged by vacationers for a good part of the year. Nassau and Freeport are the two most popular tourist attractions in the Bahamas islands.

The heart of the Caribbean Sea is constituted by the group of Caribbean islands known as the Greater Antilles. Among the many great island nations making this group, there are Cuba and Jamaica, and not to forget Puerto Rico. These names would stand apart on any list of the world’s most fascinating vacation destinations. These Caribbean islands have grown massively over the past few decades and developed into full blown tourist centres with all the world class facilities and amenities the elite class of visitors demands from a contemporary tourist getaway. And the best part is that these Caribbean islands have managed to hold on to their cultural vitality despite the need of the times to open up. Jamaica and Cuba play hosts to visitors from all corners of the world map. The world class tourist resorts that have opened up in the past few years have act as catalysts for the tourist industries in these Caribbean islands.

The southern portion of the Caribbean Sea engulfs the Lesser Antilles, the third group of Caribbean islands. Among the Lesser Antilles, the island of Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, some 50 British Virginian Islands, Anguilla and Montserrat make up a subgroup of Caribbean islands known as the Leewards. The other sub group is that of the Windwards, and this is constituted by some really impressive names such as Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenadines, Grenada and Barbados. The southern Caribbean islands include some of the more renowned and preferred island locations of the world tourist map.
