The Caribbean, as far as geologists are concerned, is generally considered a nice and sunny little archipelago comprised of the Greater and Lesser Antilles. What tectonic forces came together to push and pull these little gumdrops of tropical paradise up out of the water we’ll probably never fully understand (or at least this author won’t), but what we do know is that there’s a lot of fun to be had here, and the Caribbean, especially the Southern Caribbean, is a great place to vacation.

It can be hard explaining to youngsters the appeal of doing nothing on the beach for hours on end, but rest assured – with a little forethought, there is plenty to do in the British Virgin Islands for the whole family.
