Seeking bike friendly island with good food and snorkeling/diving

Jump to last reply

Hey all, I could really use some help here.

Traveling with new bf who loves to cycle, run and hike and i'm used to mostly being in the water. Trying to find some common ground that we're both happy with:

1. I'd love if we could bike on cruisers most everywhere - to restaurants, markets, explore, etc. If he can go off on his own for more serious cycling that would be great, but not necessary.
2. healthy reef for snorkeling, maybe diving
3. good food (fresh fruit juice stands, cake sellers, street food, local to higher-end restaurants)
4. light hiking that wouldn't kill me or otherwise end burgeoning relationship
5. smaller wld be much preferred over cruise ship locales although not ruling anything out if I could find the other stuff

Guadeloupe offers serious cycling excursions but doesn't look like we could both just casually bike around as part of our daily routine. (plz correct me if I'm wrong about this.) Food and snorkeling sound great on Basse Terre side but things look far apart and would require being in a rental car quite a bit if biking everywhere is unrealistic.

Considering Curacao and then hopping to Bonaire for few days but again looks like mountain biking excursions rather than casually being on bikes everyday?

I'm almost be tempted to go back and split a trip between Ambergris and Caulker in Belize except I was just there 2 weeks ago. Surely, there must be other intimate islands where cruising around on bikes is the norm and bike rentals abound? A place with good food, a healthy reef, maybe light hiking ops? I've seen mention of both Barbados and Bermuda -- are these worth researching?
