Islands in the Caribbean w/nice city life by the beach like Waikiki?

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for an island in the caribbean that has something similar to Waikiki where there is a major strip full of dining and shopping options located alongside a beautiful beach.

I will be going solo, so I wouldn't want to be is an isolated resort area, but rather somewhere where I could step outside the resort on foot and find some sort of city life.

I've only been to St Kitts and Nevis in the caribbean, and there was nothing but our beautiful resort in Nevis on the beach, which was great. But on the way back we had a transit in St Martin, and I thought it seemed to be "the most happening" island in the region in terms of what I'm looking for this time around, especially with its European influence.

Any specific island/city names or hotels/resorts would be appreciated!

Thanks :-)
