Grand Cayman or Barbados for last wk of May? Open to other suggestions!

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at beach trips. As usual, I start with the easy 8 hr drive to Isle of Palms, SC and then evolve to Ft. Lauderdale/Miami and then start exploring islands I could visit. At this moment, Grand Cayman and Barbados are the most tempting. I spent a week at Seven Stars on Grace Bay T&C the summer before last and not sure those beaches can be beat. 7 Mile beach in Grand Cayman looks awesome. Anyone have feedback/opinions/advice?

I've heard Aruba is windy? St. Lucia is mountainous which is nice but not for this trip. Curacao? Antigua? Barbuda?

Details...
• A horse-accident has left my friend not loving super long walks/climbs... a lot of the resorts I've seen seem to be "perched" which isn't what we want. Also don't want a 3rd floor room with no elevator. :)
• Safe for two women
• I LOVE snorkeling, and a from the beach option is great.
• Not a cruise-stop kind of traveler
• Want to be there last week of May

I was looking at the Westin on 7 mile Beach... price seems right... If anyone has suggestions for a GREAT deal/friends and family discount, etc. for anywhere fabulous, please let me know. The Fodors community made T&C doable. Thanks for any advice!
