The B-Line Beach Bar and the Passion Confusion Drink

B Line Beach Bar Little Jost Van Dyke

"Hide the Cashmere, the bomber is focused in!" As soon as we grabbed the mooring ball near Diamond Cay, we had the dingy in the water and were motoring towards Little Jost Van Dyke and the B-Line Beach Bar. When Castaway Lorrie says go, we go. I aint arguing. The B-Line Beach Bar is the new kid on the block when it comes to British Virgin Island beach bars. Opening earlier this year (2014) … [Read more...]

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. Last week was my first visit to this stunning landscape and it exceeded my expectations. It was a quick whirlwind tour, but it still left a powerful impression on this salty soul. You'll see some of that beauty in this … [Read more...]

Ahhhh, I feel more relaxed already. Cheers! Caribbean … [Read more...]

Frigate Bay St. Kitts The Strip

What can I say about St. Kitts that hasn't already been said, it's just a special special place.

This Island Lime Video features the soothing waves of South Frigate Bay, or better known as "The Strip". The Strip is the main entertainment area on … [Read more...]

Chartering With Virgin Islands Sailing

Virgin Islands Sailing

The British Virgin Islands are one of the best sailing destinations in the world. With dozens of islands all within visual range, restaurants and marinas all over the place, and near constant trade winds--the BVI is a great place to charter a yacht. In three weeks I'll be setting sail in a three-boat flotilla in the BVI. This is the first time I've been a part of a yacht charter and the … [Read more...]
