Uncommon Caribbean Photobook

Uncommon Caribbean is Steve and Patrick Bennett, two brothers from St. Croix changing the way people think about travel to the Caribbean by putting authentic aspects of island life and the region's unique cultural heritage in the spotlight ahead of the glitzy, one-size fits all tourist trap image popularized over the years.

    Sunday is beach day! Which would be easy if we were back at @xeliter on the Samana peninsula or the Dominican Republic. Nestled between two rocky outcroppings, this approximately 100-yard beach greets lucky sun worshipers with slightly off-white sand, clear warm water, smooth waves, a picturesque line of palm trees, a rustic wooden facilities area, and some of the least salty sea water I’ve probably ever swam in.

    On a recent visit to Curtain Bluff, I stayed in an older portion of the 50 year-old property, but you wouldn’t have know it. The remodeled deluxe room was well appointed with a rain shower, spacious bedroom, and, best of all, a terrance that lead straight out onto the sands of Surf Beach — complete with an idyllic hammock hung between two palm trees barely 10 feet from my door. With that kind of relaxing on the schedule, it’s no wonder I frequently hung this cheeky little door hanger outside to ward off interruptions!

    Get a head start on the rest of America by greeting the sun as it rises over the eastern most part of the country, Point Udall on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.

    This isn’t quite all the way there, but rather the view from the nearby Solitude area of the island… Still it’s earlier than most!

    You meet all kinds in Barbados! The Barbados green monkey was originally brought to the island from West Africa approximately 350 years ago. Over the 75 monkey generations since then, due to environmental differences and adaptations, the Barbados monkeys of today have different characteristics than those in West Africa.

    You can find these curious cousins mainly in the parishes of St.John, St.Joseph, St.Andrew and St.Thomas, where natural vegetation and woodlands still exist, especially in the gullies… And people’s gardens. 

    Every morning, we had a troupe saunter past our house in Fryers Well Bay! Good morning!

    Simply can’t do #Barbados without fresh fish cakes! (And pepper sauce, of course!)

    Another stellar design from our friends from @bajancherryswimwear in their quest to create that perfect bikini — one that looks good and stays put when charging waves.

    You can’t have a rainbow without rain. Waking up to this view in Barbados has me (Patrick) hoping everyone who got a visit from Arthur has a rainbow for their weekend.
