My Island - Summer 2013

Four locals share their favourite island spots.

British Virgin Islands

Head to the Baths on Virgin Gorda and explore the beautiful grotto and tranquil ponds formed by volcanic eruptions. Then catch a cab to The Rendezvous Bar at The Bath and Turtle – a tiny hole-in-the-wall pub, with a great view over the marina. Order their famous fish and chips, but make sure you save enough room for a cocktail – or three!

Turks & Caicos

$articleImageAltDrive over the causeway and step back in time on Middle Caicos where day-to-day stresses just melt away. Relax on Bambarra Beach (my favourite) where towering cedar trees fringe the beautiful white beach and clear blue water. Share a picnic and ice-cold wine, and if you feel like a wander, head out to Pelican Cay at low tide. Travel ten minutes up the road to end your day watching the sunset at Blue Horizon Resort that overlooks Mudjin Harbour. With the sea spray crashing over coral formations, it’s pure heaven.

US Virgin Islands

Our best secrets are underwater. Exploring the wreck of the W.I.T. Shoal, a 328' freighter with five decks, is a diver’s dream come true. With multiple swim-throughs and teeming with biodiversity, it’s a living kaleidoscope of colours. After an action-packed dive, I love heading to Brooks Bar for a chilled Presidente beer and a hearty helping of stewed conch. If I’m still hungry, I might trek out to Twisted Cork, a hidden gem in French Town! They have their own garden filled with vegetables and herbs, so you can enjoy organic and fresh locally sourced food.

Dominican Republic

In the capital city of Santa Domingo, explore the narrow, winding streets full of hidden treasures. Dine on traditional food at any of the Adrian Tropical restaurants in the city – they have the best sancocho! A huge baseball fan, I love going to Estadio Quisquella to watch a game – where many players go on to join Major League Baseball teams. If golf is more your thing, Casa De Campo in La Romana has some of the best courses in the world.
