Seven affordable, under-the-radar beach destinations

USATODAY.com: "Unlike its metropolitan and party-hardy big brother Trinidad, little Tobago is content to be a laid-back and natural Caribbean beauty. With the western hemisphere's oldest protected rainforest, marine parks, and secluded white sand beaches, Tobago has been recognized by World Travel Awards as the World's Leading Green Destination, a status it was given in 2007. What's more, whether you come here for a quiet beach honeymoon or an active adventure vacation, you can generally do it pretty cheaply.

Whatever your style, it's worthwhile to experience both Tobago's beaches and its wild interior. Tobago was purportedly the inspiration for 'Robinson Crusoe,' and even though the deserted beaches described in the novel were based on observations made almost 300 years ago, you can still find such beaches on the island today. Try going to Pirate's Bay, which was used in the 1954 film version of the novel. You should also plan on a snorkeling trip (25$) to Buccoo Reef, where you can swim with tropical fish in crystal-clear waist-deep water."

This St. Lucia Hideaway Will Fulfill Your Caribbean Getaway Dreams

Forbes   As the driver takes you down the rocky, uneven path, you'll begin to wonder if there's been a mistake. This isn't what it looked like on the website, is it? You selected a beachfront resort with remarkable, unobstructed views of the Caribbean, with an open air restaurant, and with a secluded beach. Surely, that's not what is waiting at the other end of this small road.
