Each Caribbean island has its own visa regulations. In general though, if you are planning a short trip of less than three months (with a return ticket) then you won’t usually need a visa to visit the Caribbean if you hold a UK passport.
Airlines from the UK serve former British colonies like Barbados (Grantley Adams International Airport) and Antigua (V. C. Bird International Airport).
