Hipper, less crowded, and more affordable—what's not to love? Here, a few of our favorite under-the-radar honeymoon-worthy hideaways.

If you like St. Lucia, try Dominica

Lush and primordial, it's perfect for those who love the great outdoors.

First tip: It's pronounced "Domin-eek-a." Second tip: Hikers rave about the 115-mile Waitukubuli National Trail, 14 well-marked footpaths running past high-drama waterfalls, hot springs, and peaks; waitukubuli.dm. Offshore, snorkel Champagne Reef—named for the tiny bubbles that rise through geothermal vents—and see anemones, turtles, and six-inch sea horses; dominica.dm. Two resorts, both low-key with luxe touches, cater to honeymooners: Secret Bay has just four sustainably built wooden bungalows perched on a cliff, all with gourmet kitchens. From $252; secretbay.dm. Rosalie Bay is slightly bigger, with 28 airy rooms, organic cuisine, and an onyx-lined pool. The oceanfront spa offers massages that incorporate hot stones from the Rosalie River. Rooms from $139; rosaliebay.com.Bob Payne
