We've got 2 tickets to St. Thomas; where & how do we find paradise?

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I cashed in our frequent flyer miles for our honeymoon in mid-November and ended up with the destination of St. Thomas. St. Thomas sounds like it is not our bag, but we figured we could get a ferry to St. John or the BVI's. Now we are wondering if it is cheap and easy to get a puddle-jumper to Anguilla or St. Barts.

What we hope to find on our Caribbean Honeymoon: of course it want it to be romantic with beautiful, tranquil beaches. But we are also looking for quaintness and culture full of life and not overrun with tourists. Of course enjoy excellent food, but we are not too keen on the isolated pretentious resort compounds that cost $500/night. We want to stay someplace intimate and private but within walking distance of some life and food, and the beach. We are open for any suggestions. Thank you!
