Island hopping in the Caribbean for honeymoon?

Hey there, my fiance & I are getting married in June 2012. We were considering island hopping in the Caribbean. Do you guys have any advice on where to go, what to do, where to stay, ferries, flights, etc.? We don't really have a set amount of time we plan to go.. we will probably go for a week or two.

If you're doing multiple islands, I'd try to go for at least 2 weeks, not just 1. The logistics of island hopping (unless you are on a boat or cruise) takes time. Checking in & out of hotels, getting back to the airport, etc. Personally I'd suggest less 'hopping' and more time enjoying a couple places.

Hi there: The best places for island hopping are: the USVI's (as previously mentioned), the BVI's, the Grenadines, and St. Martin. All of these islands are accessible by ferry and/or plane. I think for a honeymoon, you might want to consider making St. Martin your starting point and then staying on Anguilla and St. Barts.
