DESTINATIONS the beach t travelweekly.co.uk


he Caribbean islands are, with strong justification, regarded as some of the greatest places in the world for a fly-and-flop beach


holiday. But for those who want something more than a sunlounger, sand and a warm, calm sea, these islands have a bit more to offer.


BEST FOR… HIKING Where: Dominica Why: This island nation turns most Caribbean stereotypes on their head. Many of the beaches are black sand, and the mountainous, rainforest-covered interior is the star attraction. The most memorable walk is to Boiling Lake, which is reached via a six- hour round trip up steep hills, through forest and past volcanic landscapes and bubbling hot springs. That’s just scratching the surface, however. Other major hikes take in the Syndicate Nature Trail, home to the endemic sisserou parrot, and Middleham Falls,


a rainforest cascade that you can take a dip under. Book it: Explore’s nine-day Caribbean Island Walking – Dominica trip, with guided walks along the three aforementioned trails, starts at £1,999 excluding flights. explore.co.uk


BEST FOR… HERITAGE Where: Dominican Republic Why: Capital Santo Domingo is the oldest city in the Americas, and is home to a wonderful collection of Spanish colonial architecture. The Unesco World Heritage-listed Zona Colonial is the heritage hub, featuring the first cathedral, castle, university and monastery in the New World.


But Santo Domingo isn’t a museum piece – it’s a big, buzzing modern city. So once clients have got their head around the history, book them onto tours exploring its innovative food and nightlife scenes.
