Advice for a solo trip

Jump to last reply

I'm sure there have been many questions for "which island," but this one is for someone traveling alone. Here is what I'm looking for (and what I'm not):

-A place lacking Americanization/globalization (no fast food restaurants, large chain stores)
-Avoiding loud families and small children (no offense, I'd go to Orlando for that)
-Uncrowded beaches that don't have rows upon rows of lounge chairs like a movie theater
-A good selection of authentic restaurants (no buffets)
-No loud Burning Man type parties going on until 3AM outside of where I'm staying
-Decent drinks available from a beachfront (maybe served in a coconut)
-No huge cruise ships with swarms of people trashing the island
-Options to relax at clothing optional beach
-Beaches with white sands, turquoise clear water
-Either barely anyone on the island, or more local population to resort ratio.

I'm pretty laid back, and not stuck on every single thing above, just a ball park to narrow down the selection. Hoping to travel a month from now for about a week to decompress from work and treat myself for my birthday.
