Where to go in November...

Jump to last reply

Having a hard time deciding where to go in November (week before Thanksgiving) for my 30th bday for 4 or 5 nights. Right now the BVIs are leading the race...but not sure, esp because they are the most annoying of the bunch to get to from NYC.

Priorities:
Beautiful sandy beaches, clear blue water, good beach walking.
Quiet
No hassles (ie do not want to have to get up early to reserve beach chairs, etc)
Small hotel. Cabana/villa style a plus.
Access to sailing (ie catamarans at the hotel)
Daytrip possibilities a big plus (like Jost Van Dyke or Anegada in BVI).
Good snorkelling, but probably only going to snorkel one day.
Food had better be good and fresh, but indifferent to AI or going out.

Don't care about nightlife.
Don't care about super luxury/intrusive service/etc. As long as it's clean and views are great we're happy.

So far options:
Frenchmens Tortola
Guana Island (but a bit expensive unless it shows up in luxurylink). Also seems like you can't get to the other little islands from here for daytrips - maybe not necessary?
St Martin - Le Petit Hotel
Frangipani in Anguilla.
Something on St John?
Turks - seems much more busy and resort-y, but easy to get to from NYC
Any other suggestions? Where will we have least chance of bad weather in November?


Thanks
