You may have heard of the legendary private islands, the places like Antigua’s Jumby Bay and Turks and Caicos’ Parrot Cay.

But if you dig further, you’ll discover that the Caribbean is filled with all kinds of private-island destinations with many different personalities, from the ultra-luxe to the castaway chic and everywhere in between.

Because it’s one thing to find a private island; it’s another to find a secret one.

Here are six under-the-radar private islands worth journeying to right now in the Caribbean.

bahamas st vincent private island

Kamalame Cay, Bahamas Tucked off the northeastern coast of the mysterious, wonderful island of Andros in The Bahamas, this private island has been a haven for in-the-know travelers for years. Set on 96 acres, this beachy paradise has a mix of 27 rooms and suites, along with a collection of charming two-to-four bedroom cottages.

Pine Cay, Turks and Caicos Home to the Meridian Club resort, this is the essence of barefoot elegance, with an off-the-grid mentality and a boutique ambience that means you’ll find just 14 residences here, all perched right on the sand, with the sort of privacy and serenity that makes even other private islands feel, well, public.

Young Island, St Vincent and the Grenadines With the debut of its major new international airport, the island of St Vincent is getting its first real time in the travel spotlight; and while its hotel product remains largely inchoate, there is one exception: Young Island, the venerable, romantic little island set right off the coast. It’s a throwback to the Old Caribbean and the sort of cheeky, lovable destination that will have you instantly falling in love.

bahamas st vincent private island

Guana Island, British Virgin Islands The BVI is filled with beautiful private destinations from Scrub Island to Cooper, but Guana has that extra degree of ethereal beauty, a private island that’s equal parts nature preserve and luxury retreat. And with 850 acres but just 15 cottages, you’ll feel as though you have the entire place to yourself.

The Palm Island resort in the Grenadines.

Palm Island, The Grenadines If you could dream up your perfect private island in the Caribbean, it would probably look a lot like this, with its sugar-white, pristine beaches, its swaying palms and its breathtaking views of the green hills of the Grenadines. Set a short boat ride off of sleepy Union Island, Palm Island is perhaps the ultimate private destination — a private island that’s also all-inclusive. And while you’re here, it will feel like you’ve found your own secret paradise.

Belize’s surging growth in 2018 has continued into the new year.

After one of the fastest growth rates in tourist arrivals of any Caribbean destination last year, Belize has seen a 6.3 percent increase in the first quarter, according to new data from the Belize Tourism Board.

That represents a total of 158,290 stayover arrivals in the first three months of 2019.

The tourism surge has come as Belize has welcomed a host of new flight routes from North America, while its hotel sector continues to see a boom.

The latter includes a sizzling development pipeline including brands like Four Seasons and Marriott, which actually has two properties in the pipeline: the Autograph Collection-branded Alaia and a Marriott-branded hotel.
