What island for a solo female traveler to the Caribbean

Jump to last reply

I need some advice on selecting a Caribbean island for a solo trip mid November for a 40s solo female. I've traveled to Aruba and a few cruises to the Caribbean in the past but never alone so I know it's a different perspective. Most of my recent vacations have been to Europe, i love the history, but I'm looking for a stress free vacation in the sun.

Everything looks great in a photo but so much choice and opinions. My interests-beachfront or very close, safe, nice not so crowded beaches, I will not be out at 2 am but would be nice to have some socialization opportunities in the evening and snorkeling. I love the idea of my own 1st floor private outdoor space to read/relax on veranda/balcony. My debates, do I stay at a resort with more activity and access to restaurants etc or a smaller "boutique"? Ability to explore other areas - how would I navigate around.

I've read through some posts and was considering St Martin, which i stopped on a cruise and loved but sounds like it may not be the best for solo female. Virgin Islands, Barbados, (looked at Jamaica Goldeneye but perhaps not safest for solo female). A friend also suggested a private rental on Spanish Wells, Bahamas -which would eliminate any socialization -right? Budget - i want to spend around $2,500 or less for the 6 nights including air (PA). Any suggestions on resorts/hotels also?
