Valentines Day Caribbean Bliss List

Caribbean island finder - it's all about prioritizing

Admit it. You watched the beach and decided it was time to book a ticket somewhere tropical to hunt down your own Leonardo. But which island? If you're in search of a little jungle love this Valentine's day (and who isn't) consider my Caribbean island finder your passport to passion.

Beach Lovers

Follow Your Caribbean BlissFollow Your Caribbean BlissSun-kissed and sinfully luxurious, most Caribbean islands are beach-inclined. And true hedonists need dig no further - it really is all about the beach. Our requirements are simple: long stretches of beach with frequent places to imbibe...See, simple!

Steer clear: Dominica, Bonaire, Montserrat and Saba where nature is preserved for the native wildlife, not you and your jungle lover.


Good food goes hand in hand with vacation. But let's face facts, some islands just understand the importance of a leisurely meal that ignites the senses and prepares the pallet for the true pleasure of the evening - desert.

  • Anguilla - Food and sun go together here like peanut butter and jelly
  • Barbados - Stay here a month and you'll still find new discoveries
  • St. Maartin - the food, the view, what more can you ask for?

Steer clear: Dominican Republic, St. Vincent and Montserrat - an overwhelming abundance of all-inclusive resorts has made fine dining scarce.

Dancing Queens

Dancing on the BeachDancing on the BeachIf you're all about the after-hours fun and dancing by the light of the sun dawning on the horizon, find your soul mate on these islands.




  • Aruba - Beach, dancefloor, street - the choice is yours
  • St Maartin - on Orient Beach, do it in the all-together
  • Dominican Republic - head for the capital of Santo Domingo

Steer Clear: Montserrat, St. Kits and Saba are best enjoyed during the day when the wildlife is visible.


Every vacation should be about prioritizing your goals - beach, umbrella drinks and hours doing nothing more than watching the waves roll in. All-inclusives cater to the true hedonists - getting sweaty here has nothing to do with visiting the gym.

  • St Lucia - Point your compass at Rodney Bay
  • Mexico - Resorts offer additional protection 
  • Antigua - Your guy Friday is on call here

Steer Clear: Bonaire, Anguilla and Puerto Rico - they just don't do all-inclusive.

Still can't decide which island to take your lover to? Our advice is simple. Point your compass south and find an island love nest - any island love nest. The sun, sand and surf will be enough to ignite the sense. Really.
