With an island for every taste, the Caribbean is the ultimate place for relaxation. You'll find white sands and turquoise water throughout the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Some islands are lush, with rainforests and mountain trails, while others have desert climates and coral beaches. Wherever you visit, taste regional specialties such as conch fritters and get out on the water with snorkeling and sailing excursions. Yacht charters are available all across the Caribbean, and most islands have hidden beaches, beach bars, dive stops and sheltered anchorages you can plan an itinerary around. That said, simple geography dictates that if you want to see more than one or two islands, you'll need to head to destinations that have multiple islands within an easy half-day (or less) sail from one another. In the Caribbean, that primarily means the Virgin Islands and the Grenadines as well as St. Maarten/St. Martin, which reasonably is close to Saba, St. Barths, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Anguilla. The Bahamas Out Islands are another potential destination, especially around the Abacos.
