Planning a three week trip

We are a family of four planning a first visit to the Caribbean from Australia (which may also be our last visit due to the distance!). We would like to get a taste of different facets of island life and are considering an itinerary around Antigua-Barbuda-St Barths-St Martins as it seems possible to move between these islands by boat or small plane. We enjoy a combination of touring holiday and relaxing: dad likes self-drive exploring and golf; mum and daughter#1 like shopping and history; daughter#2 likes beach and watersports; and we all like to explore different restaurants and cuisine each night. Am I on the right track with these islands and is three weeks too long? Also, any recommendations of things to see/do or ways to move around the islands would be great... Accommodation preferred is 4-5 star with maybe a few nights of extra luxury thrown in at the right location

One of the best golf courses in the Caribbean is at The Four Seasons, Nevis. It's a lovely island to explore with some historical sites, good beaches, restaurants, and less touristic than some of the others.

So to change your itinerary a bit, I might do Nevis, Anguilla, and St. Barts.

All three will fit your wish list, and offer very different
Caribbean experiences.

Just wanted to add that of course you could easily add a few days in St. Martin to get a taste of the island. I'm not a fan of St. Martin, but it is the point of transit for Anguilla or St. Barths.

I'm a huge fan of St Martin (french side), albeit gone only two times. I give the link to my trip report (yes, I even wrote one !).
From St Martin it is easy to go to Guadeloupe by plane (about 200 €) and to St Barth (100 € - very small plane).

I'm not a golfer so didn't pay attention.
