Fav so far - White Bay on JVD, BVI; probably the most picturesque setting anywhere...the requisite long, crescent-shaped white-sand beach with calm, turquoise waters followed with yellow-tinged palm trees and sea grape trees then surrounded by lush, green hillsides. And best of all, it has a terrific beach bar (Soggy Dollar) and there were very few visitors on the beach when I visited there as part of a BVI day trip.

Not far behind:
Grace Bay Beach on Provo, Turks and Caicos
Meads Bay, Shoal Bay East, Maundays Bay and Rendezvous Bay on Anguilla
And any north shore beaches on St John, USVI

How can you pick just one? It depends on my mood and what I'm looking for ...

White Bay, JVD for beautiful beach and low-key beach bar action.

La Sagesse on Grenada for lush, tropical, South Seas beauty.

Coco Point, Barbuda, for blazing white sand and utter seclusion.

Manjack Cay, Abaco (Bahamas) for Robinson Crusoe exploration.

Fernandez Bay, Cat Island, for sunsets, rustic chic and romance on a pristinely beautiful half moon bay.

Shoal Bay East or Rendezvous Bay, Anguilla, for beach bar action.

Grand Case, St. Martin, for its Euro feel and spectacular dining.

And the list goes on and on...

Great question and great answers!

Top beach - Savannah on Virgin Gorda

Tied for second - Shoal Bay East on Anguilla and Grand Anse on Grenada

Tied for third - Smugglers on Tortola, Pinney's on Nevis and Leinster Bay on St. John

That said, my favorite beach in the world is Matira Point, Bora Bora.

St. Jean's Bay, and Anse Colombier -- both in St. Barth's. St. Jeans has oodles of style and vibe, and Anse Colombier is peaceful and secluded.

Cow Wreck Beach, Anegada, BVI. White Bay on JVD comes in a close second. And Shoal Bay East on Anguilla takes third place.

Great question and responses; all the recommendations for White Bay are making me think I need to get to Jost Van Dyke, because I share other favorites with many of you who mentioned this beach.

Like others, it is hard for me to pick one favorite, but if I was forced to, I probably would pick Grace Bay Beach on Provo. It has both quality (gorgeous turquoise water and soft white sand) and quantity (almost 12 miles long). My other favorites include several of the Anguilla beaches (Rendezvous Bay and Shoal Bay East would be my top two there, although others are very nice too). Ahh, too many beautiful beaches and too little time and money to explore them all

My two favorites are Negril 7MB and White Bay Beach (JVD) which is a smaller version of Negril beach!

I'm still on my journey to see them all, how can I pick one? !

Whitby Beach, North Caicos -- powder white sand, electric blue water and we had it all to ourselves.

Nipper's Beach on Great Guana Cay, Abaco and Treasure Cay, Abaco. My eyes were blinded by the white sand and blue, blue water.

Blue Beach, Vieques. Total seclusion. What beaches were like before hotel chains invaded.

Cat Island, Bahamas is my next stop in 20 days (not that I'm counting).

Meads Bay Beach in Anguilla, Grace Bay Beach in Provo and Rose Island Bahamas (from many years ago..I am sure it is developed by now though)

1. White Bay, Jost Van Dyke
2. 7 Mile Beach, Negril
3. Maho Beach, STJ or really any of the North Shore Beaches.
4. Although only there on a day trip, Palm Island was really beautiful too in The Grenadines.
