  Snorkeling Caribbean

Rumor has it, some islands have made it to Conde Nast’s Best Islands to Visit in 2020, and some just didn’t make the cut. Starting with the Caribbean, Conde Nast gives you the insider’s look at top islands to watch out for from sustainability heroes to ultimate superstars.  When it comes to choosing your next vacation getaway, we wanted to give you a better look at what’s the latest and greatest from travel experts and from our personal collection.

Here are our favorite islands to visit in 2020:

The British Virgin Islands

According to Conde Nast, conservationist Laurance Rockefeller had such strong determination to preserve the wilderness of Virgin Gorda that it has made quite the impact on the new scenery of gorgeous villas and coconut groves. When visiting the British Virgin Islands, you’ll find yourself falling in love with picturesque hiking trails, stunning beaches, and a lifetime of serenity packed into the soft sand.

Choose a West Indies Voyage when sailing with SeaDream and bask in the beauty of Virgin Gorda and the other British Virgin Islands like Cruz Bay and Jost Van Dyke which remain nothing short of noteworthy.


Explore the spectral blue mountains, warm springs, and a labyrinth of tropical rain forests when exploring Dominica. This magnificent island offers more than the average beach flop, with its high-end wellness options like the Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski and hiking trails in the Cabrits National Park.

When sailing with SeaDream, take part of our Yachting Land Adventures and enjoy thrilling experiences like visiting caves, volcanic vents, coral gardens, and even taking part of a 2-tank dive.
St. Barths

It would be difficult to describe St. Barths without mentioning the flawless trifecta of soft sand, scenic beaches, and elegant nonchalance. But aside from these exceptional must-haves, all eyes are really on the reinvented Eden Rock Hotel, with new additions like the bar frosé trolley, and Villa Nina.

Escape to the heart of St. Barths and enjoy SeaDream’s most treasured destination in the West Indies. Take a scenic hike or bike around the island and simply relax while watching all of the incredible yachts arriving and departing off the ship.


Being the largest city and capital of Barbados, Bridgetown is gleaming with landmarks, so make sure your camera is fully equipped for all those gorgeous captures! Visit the Barbados Museum, shop around Sagicor Plaza, and revel in architectural sightseeing like St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral and the Nidhe Israel Synagogue.

Known for its exotic beaches and becoming an official UNESCO heritage site, Barbados will always be one of our favorite destinations to enjoy a full spectrum of land activities, sea adventures, and some beaching.

Now that you’ve got the scoop on some of the best islands of 2020, take some time to explore SeaDream’s upcoming voyages and choose your favorite. Along with scenic itineraries, you’ll have a chance to enjoy gourmet five-star dining, experience sleeping under the stars, and get pampered with our award-winning service.
