Where shall we go?

Spouse, myself, an 8 year old and a 6 year old. Looking for the PERFECT beach destination. My husband a loves his luxury (fancy hotels, fancy food) and is a beach snob (always looking for that photoshopped beach you see in mags!) which carribbean destination do you think he might like?

Try Aruba and a weekend trip to Curacao...

Agree that Aruba would be a good choice.

Or, if the great/beautiful beach is more important than large fancy hotels, consider Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. The beach is much better than any on Aruba, but most resorts are very nice rental condos. They are very nice and luxurious, but not the very large hotels such as the Hyatt or Marriott at Aruba. Consider the Somerset, Tuscany, or Seven Stars on Provo's great Grace Bay Beach.

I would think that the perfect place for your husband (and therefore you too..? kids will be happy in the Caribbean period) is Anguilla. Some of the fussiest fanciest places in the Caribbean are there...and teh beaches are pristine white endless and slip into crystal blue Caribbean waters....I am partial to mountainous, rugged wiht great beaches and fantastic rich West Indian culture....Anguilla less of this but the beaches took my breath away. And Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox etc... stay on the island...fancy enough?

Otherwise - Grenada. One of the top 10 beaches is Grand Anse and it has all the stuff I love, but definetly has some crazy high end lovely fancy places too....
