The sun-drenched islands of the Caribbean make it the perfect candidate for an utterly luxurious break - and even more so if you're able to visit several islands and experience the very best of each. We'll be looking at some of the finest destinations below.
Before we do, though, it's worth bearing in mind that if you like the sound of visiting more than one isle, a cruise is a natural choice. Caribbean cruises (which you can find out more about by visiting this website) are perennially popular and itineraries typically include stops at gems like Antigua, Barbados and the Bahamas.
Of course, opting for a cruise isn't purely a question of practicality. Indeed, it's also one of indulgence - after all, what more luxurious way to travel is there than on a cruise ship, where you can be pampered and do exactly as you please the entire time you are travelling?
Famed for having a beach for every day of the year, Antigua is a beach lover's paradise. The island's 365 stretches of sand are really varied, which means there's a place for everyone, whether your idea of the perfect spot on the coast is tranquil or abuzz with locals and tourists alike.
If the former appeals most to you, Rendezvous Bay is one beach that should definitely make your must-visit list, while fans of the latter ought to head to Runaway Bay or Dickenson Bay - two of the most popular and vibrant beaches on the island.
There's more to Antigua than beaches alone, though. For example, the island has an incredibly rich history, which means there are some fascinating historical sites just waiting to be explored.
The best-known of these is English Harbour, which is also home to Nelson's Dockyard National Park. Dating back to the 18th century, it is now the world's only surviving Georgian dockyard, and was once a base for the British Navy. To get the best view of it, make your way up to Shirley Heights - another key attraction - which is a complex of military buildings.
Encompassing those classic Caribbean attractions of year-round sun and beautiful beaches is Barbados. Not content with this, though, the island is also home to some spectacular natural wonders.
These include Harrison's Cave, which is not to be missed. For those who are going on a cruise, you will usually find that a visit to the cave is offered as an excursion. This 2.5 km long stream cave system is filled with waterfalls, pools, little streams and pretty, natural columns - it's virtually impossible to come here and not feel awestruck.
Like Antigua, Barbados also has a rich history that's well worth exploring. Make sure you visit Sunbury Plantation House, which was built in the 17th century and will give you insights into the island's plantation era.
The final destination on our list is the Bahamas, a beautiful cluster of islands that offers the opportunity for both relaxing and letting your hair down. Indeed, the type of experience you have to a large extent depends on which island you visit.
Crooked Island, for instance, is virtually untouched. So, coming here is the perfect way to have that desert island experience - even if only for a few hours. If, however, you'd like a taste of the livelier side of the Caribbean, visit Nassau, which has plenty of attractions and nightlife.
These include the Pirates of Nassau Museum, where you can learn all about the history of piracy in the Caribbean. Nassau also has a host of great restaurants where you can indulge in some authentic Caribbean food - remember to try conch, which is one of the nation's specialities.
