Which island?

We have been to St. John and St. Maarten and loved them both. Where should we go in March? We don't snorkle, but love the beaches, good food, shopping, scenery, day sails. We usually prefer something smaller than the large resort chain-type hotels. Please give us your input. Thanks.

If snorkeling isn't number one on your list, try Anguilla. It was a wonderful place, we just thought the snorkeling was poor both times we were there. They have several of the worlds most beautiful beaches there. No a lot of shopping, but some. Cheddie Richardson has a fantastic carving studio. The people are great and there are a lot of cozy places to stay. We stayed at the Anguilla Great House and it was wonderful. They have nice day sails and many good restaurants. It also isn't over run with tourists. It's easy to get to. Either a ferry or puddle jumper from St. Maartin.

I am obviously biased as I have lived in Antigua for approximately 20 years and own/operate a small, beachfront apartment style hotel here. Antigua has all the things you want! The beach we are located on Runaway Bay (1/2 mile long) and the beach immediately to our north, Dickenson Bay (1/2 mile) offer a variety of different bars, restaurants, water sports. We have the quieter beach and Dickenson Bay is the active beach with a number of large hotels such as Sandals. We have a lot of regular guests who enjoy our size and also the proximity to so much else. Check out Barrymore Beach Club at &lt;www.where2stay.com&gt;. <BR>

Try Bermuda! Although it may be cool in March, there is alot of shopping compared to most all of the caribbean islands, the beaches are fantanstic, there are many many restaurants, and its one of the safest, cleanest, and most picture perfect islands in the Atlantic/ caribbean. Check it out...

Antigua is our favorite. We always stay at Barrymore Beach Club as it it small and quiet and on the beach. No perky organisers to put up with! Restaurants nearby run from inexpensive (Millers and Putters) to expensive but still under US$100 for dinner for 2. The catamarans will pick you up nearby for day cruises. Then go into town for shopping and for a nighttime party cruise on the Jolly Roger. For scenery we think the Tropical rain forest is tops. <BR>Enjoy!
