Which island next??

Been to a few - Barbados, Antigua, St Lucia, Cuba, Bahamas. Would like to try a different one.

Places we've liked ... Playa del Carmen/Barbados/Miami for the nightlife, Cuba for the stunning beach (and Havana for the vibe/energy).

What we're looking for... nice beach/nice water, Nightlife! (Not raving till 3am - but a couple of bars where you can just people watch/enjoy some low-key live music, 5* accommodation. Not much then, lol.

We don't mind big hotels (actually like them really for the range of facilities). Don't want somewhere swarming with kids either.. no offence. Not considering Aruba, Jamaica or Dom Rep at the moment.

Anything left??

Regards

Jenni

Hi,

just came back from bahamas exuma.I know you said you have been to the Bahamas, do not know if you have been to Exuma. Stayed at the Grand Isle Villas. The place is 5 star. Geogeous villas overlooking Emerald Bay. Crystal clear beach! Almost no kids. Only draw back is nightlife,not much going on except we hung out at the Four Seasons next door beatiful bar, excellent food in their fine dinning restaurant. They also have aCasino! Do not stay there cause Grand Isle Villas blow them away with the accomadations. There are some great other islands to visit via boat, geogeous!

I hope this helps. Also onther beautiful Island is ST. Barts, very pricey! Went there last year stayed at the Eden Rock, 5+++++ hotel, the french culture is wonderful! I can not say enough about this place. If you want to spend the dough, this is the place.

Let us know what you decide! good luck!

Thanks for the reply.

I just checked Eden Rock, and it looks sublime (even if it does cost a small mortgage, lol). I'll read up more on that.

I hadn't really considered going back to the Bahamas (we went to Paradise Island) though it is easy to combine with Miami for some nightlife, so I'll think about that too.

I'm also looking at Turks and BVI - cos both have flights from Manchester (always a bonus for us Northerners).

Thanks for the help
