60th birthday trip

Hi. I am planning a birthday trip in January 2014 and I am flexible on timing and location. I'm looking for 4 or 5 star location/accommodations, beautiful white sand beaches and some shopping and nightlife (doesn't have to be much though). Looking outside USA and for something leaning toward the more exotic or out of the way that maybe I haven't been before, so not Hawaii, Cabo and the typical Caribbean islands (but open to smaller, less touristy islands).

I'll take any and all ideas anywhere in the world as this is a special celebration. Thanks.

Dominica is smaller and less touristy, but the beaches are black sand (although still beautiful) not white sand like you request.....great place nonetheless............Saint-Maarten is a wonderful island, but is more well known, therefore busier, but has all of your other requirements for a special celebration..........

Have you looked at Barbados? Check out The Crane hotel. It might fit the bill.

I would also give Anguilla serious consideration.

You've probably booked by now? If so, where did you find?!?

A few Bahamian options…




Happy planning, hope you have a great birthday and a great trip!

We loved Corisca and you are old enough now (Happy Birthday) to venture beyond the Caribbean and Mexico right?

You should go to Thailand, I know it'll be far but hey why not, if you have the time Thailand is an absolute stunning place to visit.
