Caribbean Cruise - Tortola

Our penultimate stop on our Caribbean Cruise was Road Town, the capital of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. With five very full days behind us, we decided to make this a day of rest! We travelled out to Cane Garden Bay, on the north shore of Tortola, about 5 miles west of Road Town, where we spent most of our day in a deck chair on the beach, with the occasional dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean.

As may be seen from the two images above, the beach was quiet with plenty of choice of deckchairs and umbrellas and the sea was calm, and warm. There were a few bars and restaurants around, which was a surprise to some visitors, showing how quickly the area bounced back after Hurricane Irma last year (2017).

Returning to the harbour, we had this view of Road Town and its harbour.

It is half French and half Dutch and is said to be one of the Caribbean's most diverse and interesting islands! Look out for my next post to see if you agree!
