Loblolly Beach, Anegada BVI: Island Lime Videos

Loblolly Beach Anegada

They say the best places to explore are ones that are hard to reach. I don't know who "they" are but I tend to agree. Anegada is the often over looked island in the British Virgin Islands. It's an odd ball. It sits about 15 miles north of Virgin Gorda, further than the other islands of the BVI and it's completely flat. All the other islands in the BVI have large rolling mountains that cascade … [Read more...]

The Baths of Virgin Gorda, BVI: Island Lime Videos

Baths of Virgin Gorda

The Baths of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands are a "pinch me" type of place. Large volcanic boulders cover the southern shoreline creating majestic caves and tidal pools.

You'll see some of that beauty in this … [Read more...]

Philipsburg Beach, St. Maarten: Island Lime Videos

Philipsburg St. Maarten

Philipsburg, St. Maarten was my home away from home during my sail aboard Island Windjammers tall ship Sagitta. The town is the major port-of-call for cruise ships on the island, so tourists shops and restaurants abound, but there's plenty of places to find a quiet spot to take in the harbor's true beauty as well.

St. Jean Beach, St. Barts – Island Lime Videos

St. Jean Beach St. Barts

I was sweating like a beast under the Caribbean sun, sitting on an aluminum guardrail at the top of a hill on St. Barts. My camera was poised and ready, waiting for planes to perform their aerial ballet of flying down a step hill and pulling up at the last second to land on an extremely short runway. If the pilot's timing is off, they could end up in the water on St. Jean Beach (pronounced St. … [Read more...]

Beaches, like people, have personalities. Shoal Bay beach on the island of Anguilla has a sparkling personality, one I fell in love with as soon as my eyes took in its beauty.

We passengers were … [Read more...]

Oualie Beach, Nevis – Island Lime Video

Oualie Beach Nevis

I have fantasized about Nevis for a long time. A couple years ago during a week long stay on St. Kitts we took a sunset cruise and sailed by its leeward shore, never getting a chance to set foot on the island though. So close, the island's lush green landscape and towering Nevis Peak teased me like a hard-to-get woman. Fast forward a couple years and with the aid of the tall ship Sagitta, Nevis … [Read more...]

Tahiti Beach, Elbow Cay – Abacos Bahamas: Island Lime Videos

Tahiti Beach

It's been over a week since I saw the Abaco Islands fade from the window of the small plane that returned me to reality. Each day since I catch myself thinking back on my time in Hope Town. The people, the beaches, the food, the blue water, the pastel homes, the beaches, the conch, the beautiful Elbow Reef Lighthouse, the rum drinks, the beaches--did I mention the beaches? Hope Town and Elbow … [Read more...]
