Honeymoon with beaches plus hiking

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are getting married in September and the last big element we have left to book is our honeymoon. I have been researching for awhile and have been getting pretty overwhelmed so I could use some advice!

We are from the east coast and are looking to go somewhere in the Caribbean probably for 8 nights. The first must have for our location is that it needs to be fairly accessible (we would probably be flying out of either Pittsburgh, Baltimore, or DC and total travel time over 10-12 hours would be a deal breaker).

Next, we are a pretty active couple and enjoy the outdoors so we would like somewhere with opportunities for hiking with unique waterfalls or island views as destinations. Also, I have been to the Caribbean on a couple of cruises before but my fiance has never experienced the awesomeness of a Caribbean beach so we also want an island with nice beaches, they don't have to be the best beach in the Caribbean but we want something nicer than the beaches of New Jersey or the Outer Banks.

As for our actual accommodations, we want to stay away from major resorts and would love a place that we have our own little cottage type of thing. We were also thinking about the idea of splitting our time between two locations, one closer to nature and hiking, and one on a nice beach. We would even be open to two locations on different islands if necessary to get both experiences as long as the travel between the two isn't too difficult.

As a reference a few places I've been looking into include St. Lucia (but the flights are too long), Dominica (but I'm not sure if has the Caribbean beaches we want), St. John (because of the National Park) or Antigua.

Also last question, is the middle/end of September really a bad time to visit the Caribbean in terms of possible hurricanes and rain? If it most certainty will be poor weather we may postpone the honeymoon until we would experience better weather.

I know that was a lot of questions/information but any input would be greatly appreciated!
