We're cruising from island to island and what pops in your mind when you hear "Caribbean"?? BEACH of course. It's a bit contradictory but Marco & I aren't really beach persons - neither do we like to lie in the sun nor to swim from shore. Let me explain: we lived for almost 3 years just steps away from the beach in Dubai. We like to swim from the boat as the water usually is much clearer, we can rinse off the saltwater and do not bring any sand on board.
Since we left the Bahamas we haven't really seen many perfect beaches with the attributes "white sand, turquoise water, lined with palm trees". With our friend Nigel we sailed from Falmouth Harbour to Jolly Harbour on the West coast. The colors of the sea changed from dark blue to turquoise and almost hurt our eyes.
The pictures show Jolly Harbour Beach - just gorgeous!
There are obviously many more beaches like this all around the island. But unfortunately we're a bit driven by time and weather to go on and are preparing the boat for our next passage towards St. Martin/Sint Maarten. Even if this means that we'll miss the Jolly Harbour Valentine's Regatta & Rum Festival :-)
From paradise with love
