Ferrying between 2 islands??

We're planning our honeymoon and would like to divide our time between two Caribbean islands. We are looking for two islands that are connected by ferry service. Will consider any islands. We'll be traveling in June and we enjoy the beach, snorkeling, and golf. Would love to hear ideas. I believe Aruba and Curacao are connected by ferry, and of course the U.S.V.I. are, but what other islands could we consider? Thanks!

St. Martin and Anguilla and St. Barts.

USVI ferries also go to British Virgin Islands.

Cozumel and Isla Mujeres
(Or you can do Playa del Carmen or Cancun on the mainland.)

I did a similar trip and wrote about it here:

There's also a discussion on this site about the same thing.

Anguilla - St. Martin - St. Barts

Ferries b/t Anguilla and St. Martin leave every 30 minutes the last one leaving at 7pm

You can go from Anguilla to St. Barts directly on Tuesdays. Or, you can go Anguilla to St. Martin then St. Martin to St. Barts.

no direct ferries from Anguilla to St.Barts, stopped last year.
ferries from St. Maarten to St. Barts (which is nicknamed St.Barffs ferry)

but better to fly!

We just returned from Anguilla & the ferry to & from St Barts is running every Tuesday (leaves at 9:15 & returns at 5:00) -- $65/person. BTW, we used to split our trips between St Barts & Anguilla -- nice contrasts culturally & geographically.

My husband and I divided our honeymoon between ST. John (USVI) and Tortola (BVI). It was really great. Only 15 minute ferry between the two of them on really calm seas. The beaches are gorgeous, especially on St. John. Don't know about golf though.

Alternatively, you could do two BVI islands.

Dear Julie,
My husband and I own a beautiful condo in the quiet northeastern end of St. Thomas VI. It is situated in a private cove with only one other resort. Point Pleasant is gorgeous and private for honeymooners--my mom personally decorated our condo and it is beautiful and spacious. Best of all we love to rent it out to family and friends for a great price!! You will have money left over to take the ferry (3 miles away) to the BVI or St.Johns or both! If you would like more info I can send you a brochure, give you our website and other information. You won't be dissapointed.
Sincerely,
Lisa Gerten

a stay on Barbados combined with one of the Grenadines is a ferry ride away in some cases and you'll have your golf. St. Thomas and St. John (15 minutes away) would give you golf on St. Thomas but the BVI has no golf but lots of islands to travel between. Four Seasons Nevis for golf. Might also consider Puerto Rico for golf combined with Vieques or Cuebrela. Don't know that St. Martin/Anguilla/St. Barth's would give you the golf that you mention. New ferry between Fla and Mexico.

St. Martin/Anguilla is a great trip, but if you are into golf, it's probably not what you're looking for. There's only one course on St. Martin and it's not great. Puerto Rico/Vieques is a great recommendation. Lots of hotels with golf and a lot of other things to do on the "mainland" and secluded, quiet, veg-out-and-unwind atmosphere with pretty little beaches on Vieques.
