These Caribbean Countries Are Safe For Solo Female Travelers

By Kelsey Marie


Summer is in full swing, which for many of us, means vacation mode. Female solo traveling has been on the rise and more accepted lately with the Caribbean being a hot spot for many.

The recent deaths of travelers in the Dominican Republic have made tourists hesitant to visit this destination, leaving many to wonder: which Caribbean countries are safe for solo female travelers?

Below is a list of Caribbean countries safe for the woman who craves solo travel:


With the slogan, “Tranquility Wrapped in Blue”; this island is quiet and filled with friendly locals.

Although Anguilla’s tourism industry is on the rise, they have managed to maintain their laid-back appeal.

With the population being around 15,000, this tiny island has one of the lowest crime rates in the Caribbean.

Not only does Barbados have beautiful beaches and amazing food, but it is also a country safe for female travelers.

Welcoming around 1 million visitors annually, the tourism industry stimulates the economy tremendously. The locals are extremely friendly and will make you feel at home.

Barbados also has recently elected their first woman Prime Minister, Mia Mottley.

The British Virgin Islands (or B.V.I) consists of more than 60 islands and is one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean. It is so safe that exploring by yourself after nightfall isn’t considered high risk. There are enough national parks, white-sand beaches, rainforests and beautiful, blue waters to please even the pickiest traveler.

If you’re one that prioritizes tropical rain forests, live-music, and white sandy beaches when traveling, then this French territory is goals.

Martinique offers history, culture and can even help you learn French while on vacation. To top it all off, Martinique is known as an overall safe island.

This British Overseas Territory consists of three islands and boasts some of the world’s best scuba diving. It is both a destination for wealthy travelers and female travelers because of their low murder rates.

The Cayman Islands are very strict with their firearms policy, making it safe for both tourists and locals.

Not only is this a popular vacation destination for travelers craving sunsets and beaches, Turks and Caicos also has very little rain and scarce hurricanes. The Grace Bay Beach was even called the “Best of all Tropical Islands in the World” by Conde Nast.

Although petty theft does occur, the overall crime is very minimal.

These islands may be generally safe for female travelers but it is always important to be observant of your surroundings and your personal possessions.
