Hawaii or Caribbean?

Jump to last reply

Please, for the love of beaches, please share your knowledge with me.
I'm trying to decide if I want to go to Hawaii -AGAIN or try something new and fly to the Caribbean.
I've been to Hawaii probably a dozen times or more but never to the Big Island. I love Hawaii. I'm familiar with it. I had family there. It feels like home and a warm sensation comes over me when I think of going...But it's very comfortable and also in my comfort zone. I therefore thought I should give the Atlantic a try and head for an island in the Caribbean. I know NOTHING about the Caribbean. It's a bit overwhelming reading up on every island from St. Lucia to the Exhumas.
But, what I LOVE is:

-Gorgeous, warm, white sand beaches
-Friendly people. Are people generally friendly in this region? I know the differences in the islands is probably culturally vast but I'm hoping they have some Aloha spirit :)
- Scuba. It'd be great to have some nice places to dive and see some colorful underwater life. I've been to Tahiti and Moorea and the diving there was some of the most beautiful I've seen. So much sea life and color. Do any Caribbean islands have this?
-I am not really into the crazy, nightlife partying type of atmosphere but definitely enjoy a great bar, an ice cold beer with live music here and there.

So far, I've narrowed it down to Anguilla or Turks and Caicos, leaning strongly towards Anguilla because I can ferry to St. Maarten/St. Martin.

I'll probably default to the Big Island but am I missing out by continuously going to Hawaii and not giving the Caribbean a single thought? :)
I thought about doing a Caribbean cruise to be able to see several of the Caribbean islands in one week but I'm traveling solo so I don't think it'd be fun being alone on a cruise, extremely independent though I am.

Any thoughts, opinions, rants, anecdotes or musings are greatly appreciated!!!
