The Associated Pressd reports: "Conde Nast Traveler's April issue showcases 13 of the smallest and least-known islands of the Caribbean.

Terre-de-Haut-- antilles-info-tourisme.com-- is reachable by boat from Guadeloupe and boasts Pompierre Beach. Barbuda www.antigua-barbuda.com-- is a 15-minute flight from Antigua and has several exclusive resorts. Saba -- www.sabatourism.com -- is accessible by boat from Sint Maarten and is known for dive sites.
Canouan, in the Grenadines-- www.canouan.com-- is still a bit of a secret among island aficionados. But most travellers have probably heard of Puerto Rico's Culebra -- www.islaculebra.com -- and the Cayman Islands' Little Cayman and Cayman Brac-- www.caymanislands.ky-- known for diving and birding.
Also on the magazine's list are:
St. Eustatius-- www.statiatourism.com-- a diving haven that is part of the Netherlands Antilles.
Jost Van Dyke, in the British Virgin Islands -- www.bvitourism.com/jost-van-dyke-- known as the "party island.''
Montserrat-- www.visitmontserrat.com-- which continues to rebuild on the northern part of the island following a 1997 volcano that destroyed its capital.
Bequia-- bequiatourism.com-- in the Grenadines.
Petite Martinique -- petitemartinique.com-- and Carriacou -- grenadagrenadines.com -- accessible by ferry from Grenada."

Any personal suggestions?
