St. Kitts, St. Martin, Barbados. Not necessarily in that order. Been to approx 8 islands, all are worth a visit.

One should do the Caribbean thing only once in his life. I seriously am appalled by those who tireless go to the Caribbeans year after year as if there is nothing more interesting on the planet.

Oh don't be a snob, Botticelli. The Caribbean islands aren't all the same, and because someone has been to many doesn't mean they've never been anywhere else. Question was favorite island in the Caribbean and that's what people answered.

they are not all the same, of course, but they are mostly the same.
In real life, ask anyone who went to those islands multiple times what they see and what they did, it is usually highly similar every time. Look at the photos and 95% of the time it is some large body of water. The beach is gorgeous, yeah, let's spend $2000 looking at it every single year!

The caribbeans are for boring people. Period. Every winter, it is a question of "which Caribbean island this timeď?

They aren't all mostly the same. Is Mustique the same as St.Thomas? Is Barbados the same as Anegada? I'm not a huge fan of the USVI but adore the BVIs, how is that possible if they are the same? You're being a travel snob! Instead of being that way why not help those who have not traveled as much discover the love?

Just because I've been to multiple Caribbean islands doesn't mean I haven't traveled anywhere else in the world. I've been to multiple countries in the Far East, multiple countries in the Middle East, Egypt, and many, many countries in Europe. Oh, also Canada and Mexico, and Central America, and all but about 6 US states. Next is Australia and New Zealand. But I've also been to multiple Caribbean islands and they are NOT all the same. In fact just this past August, I spent a week in the Cayman Islands then was home for 5 days before I jetted off to Egypt over Labor Day. Every single place in the world has something different to offer. If you think they don't, you've not truly traveled yourself.

I like Grand Cayman. Not a whole lot to do. But also not as sketchy as a lot of the other islands. Its nice if you go in the summer, sit on the beach and nobody bothers you and the beach is pretty empty. If you need to constantly be on some adventure, it might not be the place for you.

While I can't give advice on a particular Caribbean island to visit as I've yet to visit the Caribbean, I like to build my itineraries around food. I'll pick a few restaurants/local eateries to visit a day, and then branch out from there for other activities to do.

We travel more for the food and wine than anything else. I love going to Caribbean islands and eating at remote "hole in the wall" restaurants.

Here is one we went to in the Dominican Republic; Inicio | El Arponero Restaurante Hotel Boca de Yuma, Higuey.

Yes, kinda like London, Paris and Rome are mostly the same. Just boring big buildings, millions of people and lots of concrete.

Europe is for boring people. Every year it's a question of "which country to go to this time".

See how silly your post is?
