Where to honeymoon?
I need some help. My fiance and I will be getting married in September and my job is to plan the Honeymoon. Normally our type of vacation would include boating in upstate NY, kayaking, hiking, mountains, etc., but she requested that we go somewhere "warm and with a beach" to relax. We are not the tourist type and enjoyed a month long trip on the Erie Canal, Champlain Canal and Lake Champlain--not exactly touristy.
Hawaii's less touristy islands sound ideal because of the diversity of activities, but its a long trek from Upstate NY for a 7 day trip (Sunday to Sunday).
Is there a place that you would recommend in the Caribbean/bahamas/?? area that has more than a beach, but is not a tourist trap? The reason I am asking on sailnet is that I would like to rent a boat and do a little sailing for 3-4 days. Ideally we could sail to a secluded bay, anchor and explore the shore, read, etc., just as we do on our own boat.
My original idea was to charter a bare bones boat for the entire trip (perhaps not the first/last days), but what about huricane season (Sept. 19-26th)?
Boat: O'Day 25 / Sea Ray 270 Flybridge
