Which island for first time visit - Aruba, St Thomas/St John, St Maarten?

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip for my 40th birthday. We'll probably be using mileage for our flights, so our island choices are limited to Aruba, St Thomas/St John and St Maarten. We're considering going in mid-late Nov time frame.

This will be our first trip without our kids, so looking for some relaxation, nice beaches, nice restaurants. We're not really interested in a lively nightlife, but would be nice to be able to stroll through a small town with some shopping.

We're probably going to have ~7 days. What island would you recommend?

Thanks in advance for any advice/recommendations.
