Suggestions for Caribbean honeymoon

I am helping my daughter and fiance plan their week long honeymoon because they are swamped with other aspects of their lives! They need both island suggestions and resorts/hotels on the island(s) you suggest, if possible.

They would like an island that has beautiful beaches, interesting places to explore, and activities such as zip lining. They aren't interested in Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas or the Dominican Republic.

As far as resorts/hotels they want an onsite beach, decent restaurants and service, ideally per night rates not exceeding around $450-$500 if it's AI. Would prefer AI, but if there are good restaurants that are an easy walk from their hotel that is also a good option.

Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have!

Turks and Caicos... Grace Bay Beach is considered one of the worlds most beautiful

Look at the HOTELS section on the actual dedicated Turks and Caicos Forum to see all the listings which include Prices and Reviews...

Make a shortlist of your hotel, preferences and seek feedback about them on the Tripadvisor, Turks and Caicos forum, where local members and destination experts can weigh in with their opinions

What are forum guidelines?

Late to this party but… a dear friend went to surf camp in Costa Rica and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Worth a peek perhaps?

I'm with WT on this one - cruise! Visit several places, unpack once, try beaches and a variety of land activities, plus lazy relaxing sea days..

One thing to keep in mind is places with amazing Corona style white sand beaches tend to not have much in the way of lots of land activities as they're flatter and more arid, while those with amazing land topography and scenery like cliffs or rainforest or stuff tend to not have as spectacular long white sand beaches (not hard and fast rule but general).

St Maarten/St Martin is a wonderful spot to visit, some absolutely beautiful beaches, they do have a zip line spot, two cultures on one island and the two sides are remarkably different for such a small place, great food, easy to get around.

Barbados is, of course, beautiful. Caves, beaches, food, etc

St Lucia, amazing land options, beautiful coves, Pitons, volcano, waterfalls, rainforest, snorkeling, etc.

Grenada, lush rainforest, mountains, snorkeling, spice Island, great people, etc .

Cruise!!!

SXM Dutch side is peaceful easy relatively affordable travel, depending on hotel selection. We favor the Simpson Bay area when going, for all of the above. Not an AI destination per se, but easy enough access to restaurants and the lot.
