Actually there are 1500 residents in Saba, not 800.
Also there is amazing hiking in Saba. It has the highest peak in the Netherlands Kingdom which goes through an amazing Rainforest. So, if you are into hiking I would totally reccomend it.

My parents always said that if they ever had a chance to choose their honeymoon destination again they'd go to Strawberry Hill, Jamaica. Apparently it's the most beautiful place on Earth. Check out their site:

The budget looks about right for you, the honeymoon suites go from duluxe one bedroom ($2,600) to a private villa ($3,900) and that's including all the little honeymooners treats like massages and free t-shirts

As Isadora said Jamaica's quite good for hiking as far as the caribbean goes, and Strawberry Hill is situated in the Blue mountains so obviously that'll be easy for you. However, this means no beach. I once stayed in Ocho Rios in a villa which overlooked the sea. It had a large jungly garden, veranda, swimming pool, kitchen (equiped with staff) and steps going down from a little cabana to a small dock which was lovely to snorkel off - a short swim / walk away was a secluded, private beach just for guests. It was pretty quiet and as long as you avoid Dunn's river falls at all costs it didn't feel touristy at all. I'm afraid I can't remember the name of the hotel but if you're really interested email me and I'll have a look.

Good luck on your search and congrats on the wedding

If you don't want anything too "touristy" you should avoid all inclusives since that is virtually the definition of them. Grenada is a great choice for adventure travel and beaches. Day trips or even a couple of nights on a sister island Carrioucou can easily be made on the Osprey fast speed ferry. Rainforests, beaches and lots of bars and restaurants while still maintaining the feel of the caribben before cruise ships and all inclusives.
St.Vincent and the Grenadines is my all time favorite. Great prices, lots to do, VERY safe and friendly residents. Small islands boast lots of music, terrific food and scenery. Check out the island of Bequia, St.Vincent.
Dominica is also among my all time favorites. Still, Bequia is my #1.

If you choose Grenada, I highly recommend Cabier Ocean Lodge - look at their website. Far from anywhere, lots of exploring possible. Spent a wonderful weekend there, private beach, super views, and great hosts. Very laid back. Accommodation slightly old worldly, lovely wood floors, and private balcony. Great for honeymooners. If no-one else has booked for the same time, you'll have the whole place to yourselves. Moonlight bathing a speciality!
Otherwise St Vincent and the Grenadines - but I'm biased cos, happily, I live here! The Grenadines are beautiful islands - You can island-hop by boat - Bequia, Union Island, Canouan, Mayreau, hassle-free, or fly between them. Sailing, diving, snorkelling, all in relative tranquility. Unspoilt by massive tourism.
