Hey Wolfy, It all depends on what you are looking for as a vacation spot. Neither place has a beach in the classic sense that you may be thinking. The close proximity of the reef prevents the scouring action of waves. If you need water thrills and 24/7 adrenaline rushes,dancing, and torches and human sacrifices, than you'ld be better off on AC. If you want pleasant smiles, slow sunrises, slower breakfast, and warm trade winds challenging the thermal differences of your Belikin and your parched lips. Then CC is your Port of Call. I have stayed at both and to me there isn't a choice, but then again I might be slightly biased.
