St. Thomas, VI Over The Labor Day Weekend

To take a short restorative beak in St.Thomas, VI over the Labor Day weekend, I escaped to some of the neighboring islands. They are a short boat ride away.

A friend of mine decided to charter a boat right here in St. Thomas, VI over the Labor Day weekend and invited me to join them. We departed from Compass Point one of the many marinas on St. Thomas.

As we left St. Thomas, VI over the Labor Day weekend we sailed by Nazareth, RH. One of the waterfront homes in this neighborhood is depicted below. At the time of this writing there were 20 homes for sale in this area, ranging in price from $399,000 to $4,100,000.00. Pricing depends on whether the home is inside gated areas such as Water or Deck Point and proximity to the water.

We passed by St. John and Tortola. Our first stop was Sandy Cay. This island is 13 acre island, donated by Lawrence Rockefeller in 2008 to the BVI. Part of the allure of this island is that you get to feel what it is like to be on a completely private beach. Although there are at least six mooring lines, there seems to be an unwritten rule among the boaters. If they approach and see some one else there, they sail on until you leave. Circling back and coming ashore. Occupancy is limited to 90 minutes. We used our time to frolic in the surf, scrub ourselves with the white sand, walk the trail and snorkel a bit. Although there wasn't much to see in the water the beach was glorious.

Next came Foxy's Taboo Located at the water's edge and known for it's casual but sumptuous dining.


Back to the boat and on to White Bay where the beach is lined with restaurants, bars, boats and activities.

Although, I was in St. Thomas, VI over the Labor Day weekend most of the time, I enjoyed the day in the BVI. They are so close, we boarded our charter at 9:30 am and were back in St. Thomas before 7:30 pm. Some of the boats came from as far as Puerto Rico and were able to return home the same evening as well.
