Last post on the British Virgin Islands, and then on to Puerto Rico. Our last stop in the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) was Cane Garden Bay, a large sheltered bay, on the nortwest end of Tortola. The bay was full of mooring balls, and several beachside restaurants and shops were open for business. The dinghy dock was missing some boards but was still usable.
Quintos, which use to be located at the base of the dock (to the right), regrettably did not survive the storm.
Like the other islands we visited in the BVIs, new construction and repairs take place right alongside the damaged structures.
We were thrilled to see that our favorite spot in Cane Garden Bay, Myett’s, had reopened for business.
In addition to great food and ambiance, Myett’s is a prime spot for catching spectacular sunsets.
In sum, the BVIs suffered significant damage from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, however, no amount of hurricanes can take away the intrinsic beauty of these islands or the strength and fortitude of the people who live in these islands. The turquoise blue waters, the magnificent sunsets and the friendly hospitality of the people all remain and make cruising these islands well worth the visit!
