British Virgin IslandsTuesday, 8 April 2014
From Mexico (Tulum and other Mayan ruins) and Havana (where old American cars and new Cuban restaurants are both doing fine) the next stop was the British Virgin Islands. A place for doing things rather than merely looking at them, although the sunsets were certainly impressive.
▲ On Peter Island the island’s resort even provided this rainbow assortments of chairs for their guests to comfortably watch the sun go down. They’re strategically sited at the western end of the island.
▲ The Baths on Virgin Gorda – beach, gigantic granite boulders, pools of seawater – is one of the most popular landing spots on the islands. Then there’s walking, viewpoints, lots of sailing boats and superyachts and some pretty good scuba diving: the 1867 shipwreck of RMS Rhone was my diving highlight. Next stop the American Virgin Islands.
