If St. Kitts...Timothy Bay Resort vs. Frigate Bay Resort vs. ???

Jump to last reply

Earlier today I posted a similar message on the caribbean/general interest board, but since I'm leaning toward St. Kitts (given the great airfare I just found) I wanted to get advice from the experts here, so here goes...

My BF & I (both around 30) are planning a trip for 1st week of March - he has never been, I have (GC, Bahamas, Jamaica) - and we want to go somewhere neither of us has been. We're looking for...
...budget accodomodation (range of $150-200/nt)
...good proximity to decent beach and a few casual restaurants and bars
...on a more lush island (I know lush doesn't always go hand-in-hand with decent beaches, but where is best combo?)
...that is minimally touristy (don't need shopping)

We're currently considering St. Kitt's (Frigate Bay & Timothy Beach resorts)...and on the other hand, have also considered Belize. Have read many reviews on tripadvisor and this site about both FB & TBR, but still not clear to me given our criteria above which would be best.

Are we on the right track...would St. Kitts, perhaps with a day trip or two to Nevis and/or Anguilla fit our bill? (can you daytrip to Anguilla?) or are there other recommendations? Your help is appreciated!
