Thanks everyone for suggestions.
We just fancied somewhere different next year and understand weather can be hit or miss as have been in august many years ago.

For a beach/ golfing/ activities holiday the weather will be better in Europe- less rain and much less humid (and I am saying this as someone who went to the Carribean this summer - though we went to snorkelling and sights)

Tobago: small, not overly touristy like some Caribbean islands, equal amounts of locals and visitors on the beaches. plenty of hotels, restaurants etc. Two golf courses. Fantastic night-time kayaking in bioluminescent lagoon. Fab beaches, some totally undeveloped: palm trees, sand, reef: that’s it! Great snorkelling and diving, lovely food. And accommodation reasonable. I love it there.

Barbados is perfect for families. I have family there and spent a month when I was 15 in August. Plenty of outdoor activities, family nightlife and lovely food! Christchurch is great to stay.

There’s so many other great places to go at that time of year. Caribbean is sticky, rainy, with lots of mozzies.

Antigua is great for adults. We stayed at the Pineapple beach hotel.

I loved Aruba. Not sure whether you can golf there though. It’s a fantastic island.

One of the best holiday I ever had was at the Barcelo Bavaro in Dominican Republic. At that time it was a huge resort made of 5 hotels (barcelo casino, barcelo golf and so on) . I think now these are separated, but there is a golf course and the location, the beach is stunning.

Hi, We're thinking of a caribbean holiday next year. Probably end June, beg of July.... not the best months but hopefully well miss the rain!
Recommendations of which island and where to stay please.
We're a family of 5, youngest is 18. We love a mixture of activities and relaxation. Boys love to play golf.
Thank you
