Fun (and safe!) non-USVI/BVI honeymoon destination
      #1592372 - 06/02/14 10:16 AM (71.82.71.151)

Sorry for a somewhat off-topic post, but I know many of my fellow BVI forum travelers frequent many other islands as well. (Perhaps more than frequent the "General Caribbean" forum! : ) My daughter and son-in-law are looking for a spot to honeymoon this February. Hailey is very familiar with the US and British Virgin Islands, but is thinking she'd like to go somewhere else for this trip so she doesn't feel so much like a tour guide for her never-been-south-of-Atlanta husband. They've mentioned both Puerto Rico and The Dominican, but as a Virgin Islands specialist, I'm not conversant with the best spots to send two newbies outside of the USVI/BVI. Any suggestions, advice, or recommendations?

Thanks!

Do they want land-based or water-based and would they prefer big-hotel-and-resort type places with lots of restaurants with familiar foods, or would they prefer something off the beaten path?

I haven't been, but my cousins went to Turks and Caicos for their honeymoon and loved it. Might be a good place to look in to.

Bermuda is also great depending on when you go - we had a blast years ago in June.

My wife and I went to Treasure Cay in the Bahamas for our honeymoon some 29 years ago. Comfortable and friendly place. A good mix of things to do and seclusion.

Went to Turks & Caicos (Provo) a number of years ago and loved it. Grace Bay Beach is just amazing.

Neither T & C nor the Bahamas would be particularly WARM in February.

If the couple is looking for something quiet and laid back, Nevis would be a good option. My top choice on Nevis is Nisbet Plantation, which has outstanding food and a first class staff.

Lessee... some good questions...

I think land-based, a larger resort with stuff to do is probably a safer bet with an ilon newbie like Travis, we don't know if (well, how long) it will take for him to settle into ilon time. And yeah, I'm thinking at least as far south as the VI etc. will be necessary for February.

If you want something that would make an island newbie feel comfortable, there's Aruba. Very safe, pretty Americanized, pretty good air connections from most anywhere in the US. And definitely far south.
