Looking for island choice help

Jump to last reply

Looking for some advice! We are planning a multigenerational family trip to the Caribbean for August 2017. It will be 8 adults (ages 40-65) and 5 kids (ages 5, 9, 10, 11, 15).

Only my dad has been to several islands, the rest of us are for the most part Caribbean newbies. We are looking to find an island that has easy access from the Philly area, can offer beautiful scenic views, can have some days of lazy beach days and some with hikes or day trips, some adventure, and fishing.

We also really want to rent a house to still have our sacred time as a family instead of a bunch of hotel rooms. So therefore we need a place that offers safety, close to a town, etc.

I am a planner and researcher and I'm having a hard time trying to narrow this down since I have no experience going here! I love the look of St Lucia so far, my dad loves Belize and Tortola. We've ruled out Belize since I don't think it will be best for our kids ages. We've also ruled out PR, Bermuda and Bahamas. Thanks so much for any insight!
