Sun, sea and sand: Homes for sale in the Caribbean

Thinking of swapping London for the Leeward Islands? These tropical properties may prove all the inspiration you need

We at Luxury London are pros when it comes to period properties, City new builds and quaint cottages in the home counties. But, while London is our home, our outlook is global, and, this month, we’re heading for sunnier climes. Because, given the state of our summer so far (16 degrees in June, anyone?), who hasn’t been tempted to bag a one-way ticket to Barbados or Bermuda?

Not only do the islands of the Caribbean Sea enjoy balmy temperatures year round (the statistically sunniest, Aruba, boasts up to 300 clear days per year), but foreign investment is welcomed here, meaning the process for buying, owning and selling is straightforward. Some Caribbean countries, including Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Lucia, and St Kitts and Nevis, even offer citizenship through property investment.

If you, like us, are scratching your head as to why you’ve committed yourself to a lifetime of three-week summers, these spectacular homes for sale in the Caribbean will pose a tempting prospect.
