8 Amazing Places to Go in the Caribbean - United Hub

8 amazing places to go in the Caribbean

By The Hub team

Sure, everyone goes to Jamaica and Puerto Rico when they hit up the Caribbean. Not you. You're all about the fabulous under-the-radar destinations, where the water is blue and the tourists are nowhere to be found. Here, eight places to put on your can't-miss list.

Secret Bay (Dominica)

Not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, Dominica is a jungle-rich destination--about 600 miles east of the DR--that's home to 365 rivers, expansive nature preserves and cloud-skimming volcanoes. For a secluded spot (but also, Wi-Fi), stay at Secret Bay, where you can book your own cliff-top bungalow.

Andros (Bahamas)

Andros (Bahamas)

It's one of the least developed islands in the Bahamas (read: no tourists). It's also home to the third largest barrier reef in the world--142 miles in length. For easy access to all that blue water, stay at the Tiamo Resort, where a guided look at the angelfish, barracuda and parrot fish is available free of charge.

Mount Scenery (Saba)

Mount Scenery (Saba)

It's the island's tallest point and also the most Instagram-worthy. And if you need a place to rest your legs after the hike, don't worry: Private villas abound (like this one, which rents for a cool $4,250 a week).

Harbour Island (Bahamas)

Harbour Island (Bahamas)

This teeny-tiny island is just three miles long and one mile wide--but the sand on the beaches is pink, which basically makes it the best island ever. From Nassau, it's a short ferry ride away, and once you're on island, all you need is a golf cart for getting around.

Mill Privee (Nevis)

Mill Privee (Nevis)

Possibly the most romantic restaurant in the entire Caribbean, Mill Privée at the Montpelier Plantation and Beach serves up five-course meals inside a 300-year-old sugar mill. Come for the stone walls and authentic candlelit ambience. Stay for the plantain mahimahi and signature rum punch.

The St. Kitt's Scenic Railway (St. Kitt's)

The St. Kitt's Scenic Railway (St. Kitt's)

It's a three-hour tour we'd actually consider: The St. Kitts Scenic Railway--used to carry sugar cane from the plantations back to the island's capital city in the 1920s--is fully operational, and the best way to take in breathtaking sites like the volcanic cone of Mt. Liamuiga and plenty of rainforest views.

Little Bay (Anguilla)

Little Bay (Anguilla)

To get to this beach, you'll have to arrive by boat (or scale the cliffs with a rope), but it's worth it. Once you're there, you can swim and snorkel and float to your heart's content. Plus, it's known for having some of the best sunset views on the island.

Hotel Chocolat (St. Lucia)

Hotel Chocolat (St. Lucia)

Calling all chocoholics: At the Boucan by Hotel Chocolat you can pluck cocoa pods straight from the vine and make them into candy bars. (Then eat them at the infinity pool overlooking the Petit Piton volcano.)

United, Honeywell Invest in New Clean Tech Venture from Alder Fuels, Powering Biggest Sustainable Fuel Agreement in Aviation History

United agrees to purchase 1.5 billion gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) over 20 years - which is one and a half times the size of the rest of the world's airlines' publicly announced SAF commitments combined
By United Newsroom, September 09, 2021

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel. The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.
