Writer : Caribbean E-Magazine on Friday, August 30, 2013 | 11:25 AM

The Caribbean is packed full of sublime spots that boast the world’s best unspoilt rainforests, vibrant reefs and white sand beaches.  The breath-taking natural wonders of the Caribbean span across its many islands, with a whole array of stunning sights to feast your eyes on.

Here are just a few of the most gorgeous locations to visit during your break to the Caribbean.

The Baths, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

The calm and sheltered waters of the Baths in the British Virgin Islands make it a flawless expanse for snorkelers of all experience.  The ancient underwater boulders form a series of pools, grottos and caves that lead right up to the shore of the main beach. The intricate shelters and crystal clear waters makes The Baths a serene and refreshing way to explore the coral-kissed beauty that the Islands have to offer.

The Dig, Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas

The incredible settings of the Atlantis Paradise Island resort boast everything from private beaches to casinos, where players can enjoy renowned tournaments such as the annual PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. However, the marine habitats have earned it a place on this list. Out of all its striking marine life exhibits, the Digs offer an unrivalled experience, allowing you to search the streets of the lost Atlantis alongside an array of exotic marine exhibits, including jellyfish, lionfish and piranhas.

El Yunque Rainforest, Puerto Rico

El Yunqe Rainforest is one of the most famous in the Caribbean, and offers visitors 28,000 acres of staggering natural beauty. The native plants, expansive trees and wildlife attract around 600,000 annual visitors. For those looking to truly immerse themselves in the rainforest experience, the El Yunqe also provides fishing, hiking and camping activities.

Blue Mountains, Jamaica

As the longest mountain range in Jamaica, the Blue Mountains are home to a number of indigenous flora and fauna. Towering trees and more than 500 unique species of flowering plants can be found there, along with butterflies and 200 species of birds, including the Jamaican national bird, the Doctor hummingbird. Reach the summit by the walking track and just soak in the sights of both the north and south coasts of the island.

Emerald Pool Falls, Morne Trois Pitons National Park, Dominica

Take a 20-minute walk from the trail at the reception of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park in Dominica, and you will come across the jaw-dropping splendour of the Emerald Pool Falls. Fed by a 50-foot waterfall, the crisp and sparkling waters make this one of the must-see waterfalls in the whole of the Caribbean. The spot is popular with cruise-ship tours, with lookout points offering views of the windward coast and the lushly forested interior.
