We stayed at Long Bay Resort on Tortola's NE side.
We went to Bomba"s Full Moon party on Oct. 26th. Great time lots of people and a great band. We went to Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke on Sat. Nov. 2nd. They had an all nighter also ( Wooden Boat Regatta rescheduled from Labor day weekend). Another great party with ferries going all night. Forgot about Halloween party at Pusser's Sopers Hole had great party too! They had a $#500 costume contest. A sailboat group dressed as Pusser's Painkiller cups and won the competition.
Ate at Sugar Mill (had lobster stuffed with crab dressing - excellent). Had good food at the Jolly Roger Inn at Sopers Hole and several good meals at Pussers. Best breakfast was at Long Bay Beach restaurant. Only disappointment was at Sebastian's. Food there was less than average.
We rented a Geo Tracker from Hertz and found it to be great for the hills. We had conch fritters just about every where. Pussers were the best but Jolly Roger had the best sauce for dipping. Best beaches we visited were Cane Garden Bay, Long Bay, Smuggler's Cove, and Brewer's Bay in that order.
On Virgin Gorda we liked Devil's Bay, Baths, and Savannah Bay in that order. We have sailed these islands a couple of times but never stayed. We liked being able to take the ferries to all the island.
We even went to St. Thomas and did some shopping. We could have taken ferries to Peter,. St. John, Bitter End on Virgin Gorda. We could day sail to Norman, Cooper and Sandy Key. We could fly to Anegada also for the day.
So you can see that Tortola is very centrally located. One does not have to sail to enjoy the islands. However, every time a sailboat went by we dreamt of being on it. Foxy announced that the wooden boat regatta will be in May next year instead of Sept. because of the hurricanes. We liked staying at Long Bay Resort and would stay there again in the future.
