Bingo! .. nicely done. Have you been there? Its a delightful island off the cruise ship route, unbelievably beautiful beaches totally deserted.. and a charming place to visit for the people. Petit Martinique in the background, you can just see the point of Petite St Vincent on the left.

The vessel in the background is hard aground, has been for years since a storm blew it off Petit Martinique in the background.

Here's another view of it and the beach with the reef it's on from the hills above. We walked several kilometres around the top of the island ending up at the sloop construction yard before taking a delightful bus back to Tyrell Bay. This shot shows Petit St Vincent, with Pt Martinique to the right.
