Sounds Treasure Cay, Abacos, Bahamas sounds like your place. It was voted as one the 10 most beautiful beaches by National Geographic. Of course, I don't know of anywhere in Carribean that really has moderate cost but you can be careful and budget and come out pretty good but who wants to do that on vacation!

Hi Terri:

When you say tennis is a requirement, if you mean lessons and drills with professionals and organized tournaments, there are very few Caribbean resorts that meet your requirement. I will be happy to tell you more about places we have found!

If you just mean a tennis court on the property, there are plenty of resorts and villas that offer that.

Check out www.copamarina.com it's on the quiet southwest coast of Puerto Rico. Warm, easy to get to and fairly close. Good luck!

How about considering Tortola, British Virgin Isles? Not sure about the tennis, but certainly has everything else you're looking for. The capital city, Road Town, has a population of only about 3000 and is probably the most uncommercial place I've ever been. We rented a little SUV and drove all over. Most fantastic beaches and some great nature parks. I'd go again in a minute!

If you want a truly relaxing vacation and enjoy being on the water, check out www.windjammer.com. It meets all your requirements except tennis. I recommend the Grenadines.

Tortola and Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands sound like they fit your bill. Some of the better resorts like Caneel Bay or Biras Creek probably offer tennis, but you'd have to verify that. Otherwise, they have everything you want.
