Caribbean Honeymoon in September

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are trying to get ideas for our honeymoon in September 2011. We're very interested in the Caribbean so we wanted to know what ideas people have. We're a little afraid of it being hurricane season, but we're hoping with travel insurance we'll be okay.

The main things we require are:

1. Beach - We would like nice white sand beaches. Doesn't have to be the absolute whitest, finest sand but we don't want anything rocky, black sand, etc.

2. Beachfront or oceanview property

3. Less hurricane prone - We know that hurricanes can hit anywhere, but we've heard about the ABCs which are further south. What other islands could possibly be considered less hurricane risk?

4. Activities - Besides laying at the beach, we'd like a few options for activities (snorkeling, hiking, watersports, etc.). We haven't really snorkeled or done scuba diving before so it wouldn't have to be anything outrageous to please us.

5. Location - This is a really tough call for us. We really like the idea of something secluded like LaLuna in Grenada, but then our dining/bar options are more limited without driving. At the same time, we think it would be cool to be at a resort area where we have many options for nearby restaurants/bars. Any recommendations for getting a mix of these or is it really one or the other?

At this point we're pretty open to anything so let us know what suggestions you have! And if you have non-Caribbean ideas we're open to those too as long as there are nice beaches (but Bora Bora is probably out of our price range).

One more thing...we see a lot of really good deals for Caribbean places for this September. When do those deals usually get released? It would be awesome to take advantage of those next September, but we also don't want to wait until the last minute. Thanks!
