This is a hugely popular island for Canadians and one of the most striking destinations in the Caribbean. The twin towers of rock called The Pitons dominate the southwest coast, a pair of immense rock formations rising hundreds of feet into the sky that give the area a South Seas/Tahiti kind of feel. Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, has a series of beautiful villas spilling down the valley towards a small but marvellous beach with great snorkelling.

There’s also one of the Caribbean’s top spas, built in the rainforest. Not far away, and offering tremendous views of the Pitons, is Jade Mountain. It’s owned by a Canadian businessman named Nick Troubetzkoy and features open-air suites with an outside wall missing for optimal views. Each suite has a butler and a sizable infinity pool, as well as useful mosquito netting for around the bed at night. A once-in-a-lifetime splurge if you can handle it. There are more affordable spots further north, including the lovely Cap Maison, Windjammer Landing and a series of Sandals resorts.
