I did all of the Islands minus St. Croix – I opted for a rest day instead of catching my early a.m. ferry. With that being said, each island truly carries its own personality and character. I read up on each island the night before to get my travel juice pumping in full circulation, but also to determine what I could not miss. So, here goes my Virgin Islands playbook. The must-sees, and the, ‘You should only visit that island when your boat loses its sail and shipwrecks you to its shores’.
Island 1,2,3 Le'gooo
With a good number of Jamaicans on this island, it was the perfect place to get some solid Roti. I avoided the ‘popular’ pubs and walked a while until I came across a hut. With a little smile, you can get almost anything ‘al estilo’ vegetarian. They were all super flexible about catering to my veggie needs. Plus, what doesn’t taste good in curry sauce and wrapped in dough.
One of the best views on the island is at Bananakeets Restaurant. Although over-priced and not necessarily the best food you’ll find, it’s a great place to sit and enjoy a beverage of choice at right about sunset.
