Must-sees in the Eastern Caribbean

  • St. Lucia
  • The Tet Paul Nature Trail offers unbeatable views of both land and sea, and Sulpher Springs is the ultimate in natural beauty – it’s also great if you fancy a mud bath!
  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Half Moon Bay is just one of many beaches in Antigua and Barbuda where you can totally unwind in the sun. Check out the view from Shirley Heights, too.
  • Montserrat
  • Relaxation is the name of the game here. From the Montserrat Volcano Observatory you can take in the stunning scenery, whereas the Oriole Walkway Trail will take you into the luscious rainforest.

Dealing out the dollars

The East Caribbean dollar (XCD) is the legal tender in the countries that make up the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States – all except for the British Virgin Islands, which use the US dollar. You can use the XCD in Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The first series of XCD coins were introduced in 1981, and changed in 2002 to the series that is used today. Keep some of the one dollar coins to hand for smaller bills, and also for leaving tips.

If you’re out and about shopping for a bargain at the markets, always negotiate – you’ll rarely end up paying what’s on the price tag.

Frequently used banknotes

The most recent series of banknotes came into circulation in 2012, and feature Braille on the surface for use by the visually impaired. The four notes in common use are to the value of 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollars, each of which feature the image of Queen Elizabeth II.
