If we loved Virgin Gorda, where else should we visit?

We absolutely loved Virgin Gorda because of the gorgeous beaches, hilly and interesting terrain, quiet pace, lack of crowds and tourists, and nice walk-in snorkeling. The food was pretty good as well.. Any other islands that would suit us based on that criteria?

Well, you done spoiled yourself by going to Virgin Gorda. St. John is an obvious alternative though a little more crowded (most islands will be more crowded than VG). I would also suggest Nevis, if you can give up walk in snorkeling. Grenada has fans on this site, but I've never been.

Nevis because of its hilly and interesting terrain, quit pace and lack of crowds and tourists. There are no casinos, Big Macs or cruise ship shopping malls.

The beaches may not compare to those of Virgin Gorda and walk in snorkeling is not this islands forte. Nevis however is a very special island with beautiful people.

If Nevis does not inspire you I would suggest Roatan. The walk in snorkeling is outrageous, the best I have ever experienced. The beaches are beautiful and the water pristine. The terrain is breathtaking and pace is slow...very slow.

If VG had everything that fits your needs....why not just go back?

We will go back for sure, but we'd also like to know what else is out there because we do enjoy visiting new places as well. Any other suggestions for us?
