Which Caribbean Destination Should You Choose?
Crane Beach (click on any link in this slideshow to be taken to Frommer's' pages about that island), located on the southeast coast, is equipped with the picturesque white sand and palm trees that people day dream about; Prince Andrew even has a house overlooking Crane Beach. The waters are beautiful, but be cautious because the waves may be too rough for leisurely swimming. This beach and all beaches in Barbados, even the ones located in front of privately owned homes and resorts, are open to the public.
Located on the north coast of Aruba, the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino provides you with luxurious resort accommodations with a small island feel. The hotel has 6 restaurants, 1 café, 2 bars, casino, and a lot of fun outdoor and indoor activities.
