Top Beach Multicentre Holidays
By Jamie Simpson
Multicentre holidays are nothing new. Cruise ship lines have been offering holidays with multiple destinations since their inception and the idea of getting the most out of your holiday time is a very attractive scenario. In this day and age of jet travel, in a two-week period it is possible to enjoy a diversity of locations that are hundreds if not thousands of miles apart. Packages for multicentre holidays usually include three destinations and this usually seems to be an ideal arrangement for both travel and for leisure time.
When multicentre holidays with exotic tropical beaches are in mind, the Caribbean is the number one destination in the world and each island offers diverse and varied cultures, history, geography, accommodations and cuisine. Three of the must see locations in the Caribbean are Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Barbados.
In 1494 Christopher Columbus landed on Jamaican shores and claimed the island for Spain who held it for over 150 years. The English invaded the island and evicted the Spanish and Jamaica gained full independence in 1962. Jamaica is known for its beautiful beaches, mysterious mountains, historic attractions and rich waters. Jamaica offers the visitor jungle and river trips, big game fishing, Snorkeling and scuba diving and luxurious accommodations and a cuisine like no other on earth. Jamaica is unique and for multicentre holidays it shouldn't be missed
The Cayman Islands remained unsettled until the mid 1600s and the early inhabitants were made up of pirates, deserters, shipwrecked sailors and refugees from the Spanish inquisition. Scuba diving is the number one attraction and divers from all over the globe come to marvel at the rich undersea habitats and marine life. For non-divers and divers alike, high tech tourist submarines offer porthole views of the underwater world and make dives down to three hundred feet. The Caymans offer accommodations that run from modest beach bungalows to all-inclusive resorts
Barbados, the land of the bearded figs, was at first a Portuguese possession and the British took over in the early 1600s with little resistance. Barbados soon became the world's leader in the production of sugarcane and along with tourism it remains so today. Barbados is an exotic destination and offers beautiful beaches, pristine waters and forested backcountry with waterfalls, pools and caves. Barbados is romantic place for evening walks on the beach or horseback riding on the shore. There is sunbathing, scuba diving, surfing, fishing and sailing.
