In this article, we summarize five of the top Caribbean islands we believe will be epic for a mother daughter trip.
Furthermore, we will also include exciting activities which we are confident will may your stay memorable.
Our first recommendation is the beautiful Caribbean island of Grenada which is often overlooked as a place to visit.
It is known for its beautiful beaches, unique cuisine and friendly people. Grand Anse Beach is a must visit location in the South of the island.
This is a pristine stretch of white sand with turquoise waters. The location is perfect for swimming, sunbathing and other water sports activity.
Restaurants, bars, malls, banks, supermarkets and other amenities are all within walking distance.
A visit to Grenada will be incomplete without you and your daughter trying the national dish called oil down.

Grenada has a bit of everything including hiking trails, rainforests, waterfalls and chocolate.
There is so much to experience that we believe you and your daughter will make lasting memories.
2. St Lucia
Our next suggestion is the Caribbean island of St Lucia. This destination is known as one of the best Caribbean islands for honeymoons.
Nevertheless, it is a great place to visit for a mother daughter trip.
St Lucia is home to the majestic twin peaks called the Piton. The Gros Piton is the designated hiking trail while the Petit Piton seldomly climbed.
As one of the steepest peaks in the region, the hike may be strenuous complete especially if you are not extremely active.
Nevertheless, there are simple trails that both you and your daughter could explore such as Tet Paul Nature Trail.
Both trails are filled with amazing lush tropical vegetation where you can admire the flora, fauna and wildlife on the island.
St Lucia is also home to many beautiful waterfalls. Diamond, La Tille and Sapphire are three of the must visit waterfalls.
Honestly, if you are seeking long strips of white sand beaches, St Lucia will not be the best island to choose.
Nevertheless, there are many beautiful black sand beaches that are stunning such as Cas en Bas Beach and Anse Chastanet Beach.
These are truly breathtaking and are worth exploring if you are on island.
Our third destination of choice is none other than Barbados. One of the tourism slogans of this island is that there is never a dull moment in Barbados.
This destination is one of the more developed in the Eastern Caribbean region.
Barbados is known for fish dishes, Harrison caves, horse racing and beautiful beaches.
Harrison cave is a spectacular site and the most popular attraction in Barbados.
This excursion allows visitors to explore inside the cave via trams where you can see stalactites and stalagmite formation.
The Garrison Savannah is the venue of the Sandy Lane Gold Cup which is one of the biggest horse racing event in the Eastern Caribbean.
The race usually occurs every March at the Garrison Savannah which attracts jockeys, trainers and thoroughbred from other Caribbean islands and around the world.
For a magnificent day at this beach, we suggest that you explore Brighton Beach, Accra Beach and Carlisle Bay Beach.
4. Antigua & Barbuda
If basking on beautiful beaches is your priority, Antigua & Barbuda is the perfect destination to visit.
The island boasts of having 365 beaches being one for every day of the year.
Dickenson Bay is one of the most famous in Antigua and it shares it shoreline with several high end resorts on the island.

It is called 17 mile beach which is truly pink sand and is hard to articulate how amazing this location is.
It is truly amazing and a wonder to behold. Getting to Barbuda is seamless from Antigua.

5. St Thomas
Our final recommendation for an epic mother daughter vacation in the Caribbean is the beautiful island of St Thomas.
This destination has the advantage of being an overseas US territory. Therefore, no passports are required for entry and exit.
Some of the amazing things to do in St Thomas are island hopping to neighboring islands, relaxing on Megan beach as well as duty free shopping.
