Sparkling clear water, bright blue skies, and white sand between your toes - finding beautiful scenery in the Caribbean couldn't be easier.

So how do you decide on the best beach to lay on during your vacation? It's most important to take into consideration how you'll be spending your time. The person looking for great jet skiing and bars isn't looking for a remote island in a nature preserve, but that may be exactly what a couple on a romantic getaway wants.

Active beachgoers who don't see themselves sunbathing all day will find their paradise on beaches like Eagle Beach in Aruba. This beach offers all types of watersports, plenty of restaurant options, and miles of beach for a pick up football game. Snorkelers in the Caribbean will have their pick of great beaches with reefs just a swim away. Trunk Bay on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands is a perfect spot for beginners and families. For those who want total seclusion, try making the trip to Englishman's Bay in Tobago.
