A week into our stay in the British Virgin Islands and our initial reservations have been swept away by superb snorkeling in piratical locations, natural adventure playgrounds, relaxed beach clubs with decent food, uncrowded anchorages with perfect beaches, a seemingly inexhaustible supply of rocky coves to be discovered and a marina with beach, reef, sea, pool, wifi.
Now resorting to a marina for a couple of days to replenish our more or less exhausted provisions. With any luck the best is yet to come.
Superb snorkeling (Katiche Point, Cooper Island – The Baths, Virgin Gorda – The Indians, Pelican Island – Treasure Caves, Norman Island (aka “Treasure Island”)
Natural adventure playgrounds (The Baths, Virgin Gorda).
Uncrowded anchorages with perfect beaches (Dead Man’s Bay – so-named after – as folklore would have it – 15 sailors marooned on Dead Man’s Chest, the island opposite, by the infamous Blackbeard with a bottle of rum, who failed to make it to shore).
Swings and roundabouts ….
