I don't know about you, but it's cold here in Florida right now. The stories in this week's Caribbean Wrap Up have me thinking of a warm blue water and beach bar bliss. This week's Wrap Up includes stories about a "Crappy" rum punch on Anguilla, a private beach bar in the BVI as well as one that is considered Taboo, a sailing adventure through the Grenadines, and why the small island of Tobago … [Read more...]

Meeting Foxy on Jost Van Dyke

Great Harbour Jost

It was early morning, say 7ish, the day after Halloween. The night before our group aboard both the Maples Cookie and Fly-Bye attended a huge Halloween party at Foxy's Beach Bar in Great Harbour on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. I jumped in the dingy with Castaways Mike and Lorrie and we motored over to Great Harbour from our anchorage in White Bay. They needed to grab a few things … [Read more...]

Ivan’s Beach Bar on Jost, Memories and Construction Progress

Ivans Beach Bar Jost

It's not good to live a life full of regrets. The past is the past, move on. But I do have one regret that became very clear a few weeks ago during a trip to Jost in the British Virgin Islands. Our flotilla of pirate castaways sailed into White Bay on Halloween. We grabbed a mooring ball on the quieter eastern side of the bay, the side where the much-talked-about Ivan's Beach Bar and Campground … [Read more...]

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...]
