Everyone loves a little slice of island paradise! You're often forced to share your stretch of sand with countless others in search of a little R&R. While you may have to work a bit harder and travel a bit longer to get to these, you'll be rewarded with deserted beaches, fascinating culture, exotic cuisine and the satisfaction of "discovering" a fabulous off-the-beaten-path island destination. According to Yahoo! Travel
A small airport and ferry service makes getting here from one of the other British Virgin Islands fairly easy, but Anegada still feels a world away. The only coral island in the volcanic BVI chain and surrounded by the largest coral barrier reef in the caribbean, this island is a haven for beach bums. Feast on local lobster-rumored to be the best in the caribbean- and rest your head at one of the islands few hotels and quaint guesthouses.
Les Saintes is a spectacular cluster of eight undiscovered islands situated just off the coast of Guadeloupe and accessible only by ferry or private yacht. It is the essence of French west Indies life-without crowds, to boot. Terre-de-Haut is the most appealing of them all, with its attractive beaches, creole cuisine and laid-back French speaking locals. It also has the most options for overnight accomodations. Enjoy the powdery white sands of the palm-lined Plage de Pompierre. Rent a golf cart to get around (not many cars here) and zip to a different beach at dawn, midday or dusk.
