Recommendations for off the beaten path in the Caribbean

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are taking our first solo vacation after the birth of our son. He is going to be staying with his grandparents in Atlanta for 10 days, which is where we will be flying out of.
We don't have a preference on islands yet, so we are open to suggestions.
Here is what we are looking for:
Relatively short flight from Atlanta (Under 6 or so hours)
Nice relaxing beaches
We ARE NOT interested in all-inclusive/resorts. I can't stress that enough! :)
Maybe a little bit of local nightlife
Some nice flora and fauna.
We would like to have a small private villa/house
I've been to Jamaica (blah) which I did not like.
We also went to Vieques, which we loved.
Right now I'm eyeballing Turks and Caicos and Antigua. I was initially looking at Nevis or Trinidad and Tabago, but the flights are pretty ridiculous out of ATL.
The dates we have set aside are June 26 - July 4th.

I would really APPRECIATE any suggestions!!!

Thanks!
