I am so confused! Can't decide which island.

The more information I get, the more confused I get. My husband and I want to spend ten days on an island with beautiful beaches, clear water and nice hotel/resort. We don't like crowds. WE are considering: Harbour Island, Eleuthera, Long Island in the Bahamas; or Anguilla; or Antigua. Help me!!!!!

When are you going? During the winter the Bahamas is not always that warm.

I agree; i went to Grand Bahama in Jan. and froze. Eluthera would be great on the no crowd point, but again don't go in Jan.

I have unfortunately never found anyplace in winter w. low crowds. The best I've done is to find deserted beaches once I've gotten there, ususally miles from my resort.

Another option might be the Meridian on Parrot Cay (or is it Pine Cay) on Provo, Turks and Caicos. You'll be assured of no crowds there, as well as no phones or TVs and no kids. Unfortunately when you have no crowds you ususally have very little to do and get bored fast.

A great way to avoid crowds is go in early June. Kids are still in school and it's warm enough that folks start going to the beach closer to home. I went to Cayman in June and found the beach and resort nice and unpopulated.

Anguilla would be an excellent choice - has all three things you want, including not crowded. Some other places that fit your bill are Turks and Caicos, St.Barts, Virgin Gorda, S.Kitts, Nevis.

Is dining out important to you? If so, you can rule out Eleuthera and probably Long Island. I love Eleuthera, but the restaurant pickin's are slim indeed. I haven't been to LI, but I imagine it's in the same category. Harbour Island, on the other hand, although tiny, has some great restaurants. And from what I've read, Anguilla would be at the top of your list regarding dining!

Thanks, everyone. I'm going the first week in May if that will help with your suggestions. We don't really care that much about having alot of restaurants to choose from. Mostly we are concerned about the beaches---having a beautiful beach with shade available. What about the Sands at Grace Bay, in Provo? Or The Cove Eleuthera?

Hi Jackie, Eleuthera has great beaches, both on Atlantic and Caribbean sides of the island. There are several great places to stay with nearby resturants and food shops as well. If you have any additional questions about Eleuthera log on to www.bahamas-island-dreams.com for added details or email me direct....Doug

Hello Jackie, I have been a guest at Cartwright's Cottages in Eleuthera twice, and each time
was simply fantastic. Cartwright's Cottages are indeed a place in the
sunshine, including the ower, as her heart is as warm as her smile. You will
not be disappointed in the least, and more so not want to leave. Cartwright's
offer the best in friendship and hospitality to their guests and the island
itself is enchanting. So many things to see and do, or, just relax in front of
the cottage with a good book and view the most beautiful sun sets you will ever
see. Peace, quiet tranquility and great food and sunshine await you. My best
to you and yours for a lovely vacation. Warmly, Lee J
