Chartering with the kids

Hi Pete:
Here is a quick run down of our favorites.

Beaches:
Cane Garden Bay...moorings
White Bay...anchor
Machioneel...moorings although they are filled quickly in the day.
Sandy spit..anchor also provide a little bit of adventure for the kids ( running around the entire island) and some snorkeling towards Little JVD.

Snorkeling.
The caves at Norman.
The baths, also great adventure for the kids on the trail to Devil''s bay and a great beach at the end.
Monkey pointe.

The Bitter End is also great if you want to rent a Hobbie cat or go to the pool for a change ( $5/person for the day)

Food
mostly Yucks...
We like Donovan''s reef on Scrub island
the bucaneer Lobsters at Pusser''s west end, Foxy''s and Harry''s on JVD are good but expensive.
Lunch at Cooper''s is great.
Saba Rock was voted the worst 2 years in a row by us but we liked the steel band.

Shopping.
What shopping ???
Mostly tourist stuff. The people in the little shops at the west end are most unfriendly which is not the rule.

if you need more info please e-mail.
also we have our little web page with some pics and trip reports if it can be of help

Have a great time

Herve
