For a real bonding experience, pack your bags for a girlfriend getaway in the Caribbean. Travel to exotic places like the Caribbean is fast becoming popular with sisters, girlfriends, and groups of women who want to get away together to enjoy some "girl time."  

The best destinations let you put aside your cares about work, kids, and relationships to share good times with the girls who are always there for you. The destinations must be safe, have plenty of action and dining, but also let you just kick back with your friends on the beach with no pressure to do more.

Our Caribbean destinations do just that. Pack your beachwear and take a trip to one of these amazing places.

St. Lucia is known for its beautiful beaches and dramatic scenery, and the lack of a busy nightlife scene helps ensure a low-key and hassle-free girlfriend getaway.

Girls can luxuriate at The Landings St. Lucia, where you can stay in a one, two or three-bedroom luxury villa suite with private furnished terrace and views overlooking the resort’s luxury yacht marina or the beach and shimmering Rodney Bay. You can have a spa day, sit by the swimming pool, or take advantage of hiking, golf, zip-lining, and immersive tours of St. Lucia.

If you've never been to Barbados before, you're in for a treat. The island enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the Caribbean and one of the lowest crime rates.

If you and your girlfriends are off-the-beaten-path travelers, break free from Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap and head east where you'll find hiking trails, great windsurfing, and authentic Barbadian culture just waiting to be soaked up.

The secluded beachfront Sea-U Guest House, an eco-lifestyle lodge, offers refreshing ocean breezes and over-sized hammocks to help you unwind, with yoga classes and guided hiking excursions.

If you're on the east coast and are looking for a quick weekend getaway with the girls, the Bahamas is the ideal Caribbean destination.

Just an hour by air from Miami, Nassau boasts two major tourist destinations: upscale Paradise Island (home of the Atlantis resort) and the more budget-minded Cable Beach with its growing Baha Mar resort area.

The Breezes Bahama Resort is a charming seaside all-inclusive resort on a pristine stretch of Nassau’s best beach, the powder white sands of Cable Beach. You can step out of your guest room right onto the white sand. Select from five dining options, sip on free-flowing drinks and cocktails, pamper yourself at the full-service spa, and get active with sailing, kayaking, paddle boats, and pool volleyball.
