Islands in the Sun

Map View
There is no greater joy than to step off the plane and then get out of the bus or car and enter an island resort or hotel. I can never wait to get my first glimpse of the tropical foliage and of course…. the beach and the sea. Tropical islands are stunning and offer so many activities and many historic sites. Each island has its own history and charm. I love them all!

Little Lameshur Bay, St John 00830, USVI

One S Ocean Rd, Nassau, The Bahamas
When old money comes to Nassau's Paradise Island, The Ocean Club is where it prefers to stay. That's the way things have been since 1962, when the serenely posh resort opened along a dazzling stretch of sand known as Cabbage Beach. The 105-room...

When I walked onto the beach in front of the Paradisus Resort, I turned right. I strolled the beach along the water. In about 20 minutes, I came to a beach market. I haggled with the vendors who were pretty high pressure salesmen. I stuck to my...
