The resorts are either located directly on the beach, hence offering the possibility to practice water sports without having to get to another location, or perched on top of the hills, offering incredible views of the sea.
The main industry on the islands is not tourism as the locals still relay on cultivating bananas and other crops, but in recent years the tourism started to develop. As in the rest of the Caribbean, the high season lasts between December and April, while the low season coincides with the wet season (June to November). Many resorts are closed in September and October.
