nancy, i would not know where to begin with the bvi. been there twice on a barefoot private 40+' cat and would go back anytime. the water there is amazingly beautiful. great food at the c & f grill on tortola, and soper's hole is gorgeous. the french side of st martin is like a town in paris, the dutch side very commercial. antiqua has an annual yacht race not to be missed and anquilla has one of the most beautiful beaches around. go snorkeling at the indians, and the caves at norman island. visit the huge boulders at the baths on virgin gorda. BUT, as for jost van dyke, my fave is probably white bay and the soggy dollar bar. we sailed around the corner from foxy's nightclub into this little bay with incredible water and beaches.
ok, so maybe i was drunk, but obviously i was really impressed. totally amazing.
sorry, i kinda got out of the bvi into the other islands, but it's worth it. and i hate to admit this, but for me, the bvi beats belize anyday.
i'll try to remember to bring pix with me in june. see you then.
