The reason why there are no photos of this area, nor cruiser visits is there has been a 2NM exclusion zone around Plymouth, Montserrat since the volcano erupted.
Now this has been changed, while its quiet, and during daylight hours boats can transit through, but not stop, the zone.

We were told by the head Volcanologist that we could go to 100 meters from the pier. So we did!

It was a pretty rainy day but I could feel the ash in my eyes and it was a bit weird when we were directly downwind.

In one of the hints I said the pier was in use. This is so! Sand mining of the ash is underway at the edge of town and the trucks run it down to the wharf and load ships there. I guess the money for the government is so important.

So next time in the area check if you are allowed to and head close into Plymouth, maybe on a clearer day, and have a good look.

OK, Faster, your go

... In Dickenson Bay, that's it. There's also a Sandals resort on the same beach. We had an extra few hours between flights and took a (rather frightening) cab ride here to kill time. Beautiful spot.

Darn - I've stayed at that hotel and sat on the beach from exactly where that picture was taken.... but I was too late to get the first correct response.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's getting to be a struggle to find a picture that is neither completely obvious nor completely obscure.

This is a very well known destination but hopefully the less than usual angle will keep it from being too easy.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm sure I sailed past there in the last few months...
but the beach must be enclose by land...
There was a resort in Antigua in 5 island Harbour that I think I saw with binoculars.

That style hut thingy is pretty common nowadays in resorts.
