Which island to choose?

Trying to choose between BVI, Turks & Caicos or Bonaire. Traveling with my husband and possible with our two grown children and their boyfriend and girlfriend. We all love the beach, snorkeling, eating out. Not into the late nightlife. Trying to get

away from a lot of loud crowds and unruly children.

I think most people on this board would be in favor of BVI. If you have specific questions about BVI's than ask away.

BVI beaches are nice and snorkeling is good. Some of the islands are very small, so there may not be a ton of options for eating out.

Try to drill it down ever further and figure out your budget. The forum may be able to give you some lodging suggestions according to your price range.

Good Luck.

From those choices I would choose the BVI and Tortola in particular as the eating options on VG are rather limited. I would do a couple of day trips to Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda. The other suggestion I would make which is not on your list is St Croix. It has the best restaurants in the VI in my opinion (hands down) and has the other things you seek. I cannot comment on Bonaire or Turks and Caicos because I have not been to them.
